21st: Good match at 67 markers

Results are in for our second test at 67 markers, with nary a discrepancy at all between markers 38 and 67 (unlike another project where many of the interesting variations between a lineage occur in those marker panels).

Supplementary pages have been updated to reflect the newest results, which show there is indeed an excellent match between Stephen (S-3) and Peter (S-1)

14th: Upgrade promotion

FamilyTree DNA are having an upgrade promotion for a week, so we will be taking advantage of this to upgrade S-1 to 67 markers.
Should any other participants be eligible and wish to avail themselves of the offer, follow the link in the email you will be sent by Family Tree DNA (I don't yet know how much of a discount, but the promo I received said an average of 25%, and the normal 37 to 67 upgrade is $99 US).
Note the instructions in the flier:
To order this special offer log into your personal page and click on the special offers link on the left hand navigation bar.

Looking forward to seeing what the additional markers tell us about how close the matched trees are.
Have you checked out the new DNA Projects Portal Supplementary pages?

3rd: New results posted - to 67 markers

The first of our results out to 67 markers have been received, and posted on the results page.

When there's enough money in the kitty, either S-1 or S-2 will also be upgraded to 67 markers to see what that may add to how closely related the respective families are.

Should any SINTON researchers out there wish to help fund this, contributions are very welcome.
The contributions link on most SINTON related supplementary pages at the DNA Projects Portal, and at the Family Tree DNA SINTON home page take you to a secure link whereby money can be donated via a secure link. Such money is held in our Project coffers until it is assigned to a kit.

25th: Results updated with confirmed haplotype

Checked the Administrators page and found that we have a confirmed haplotype for one of our group.
Results page has been updated to reflect this, along with the Portal Haplogroup Tree.

17th: TMRCA etc

The discussion pages have been updated, with the main change being the inclusion of 3 tables showing at various probability levels, the Time to Most Recent Common Ancestor (TMRCA) for what is turning out to be our one and only lineage - lineage 1.
The 75% table has the best match of theory with known paper trail (that of the connecting S-1 and S-2 Southdean SINTONs), but that doesn't mean it is necessarily as accurate for how the others connect.

Results table also updated to show a modal signature for lineage 1.

Also updated the Patriarchs page to include links where further information exists on the DNA Projects Portal, which latter pages have been updated to reflect the latest Irish results.

16th: There was an Irishman and a Scotsman....

Results in for the Irish contingent - and there's a match with the Southdean lineages!
Haven't had time to post or analyse, so you'll need to check the FamilyTree DNA Y DNA results tab to see them for the moment.
