Clay, thanks for your participation in all things DNA. Aren't we fortunate to have all
these ladies who help to put our house in order, so to speak? I will not mention names
for fear of leaving one of them out but they are marvelous contributors.
In regard to the 12 point test, it has been my goal to upgrade to the 37 marker test when
someone matches my current numbers, which has not been the case in 6 years. I don't
plan to make a living in the DNA projects but I would like to know if my mess is right or
wrong. I am sure about Ambrose Daniel but not about Moses Daniel etc.
I do think that we need more profiles to match the current 180 test results but that that
might be a tall order. I do plan to do a new profile on Ambrose and outline some factors
not presently shared.
You would think that it would be simple to match up two families which have the same DNA
markers, perhaps with one different, and then cannot find out where they intersect?
It's a pleasure to join with all participants to sort out the little intricacies of
the genealogical match game.

What we need in our Daniel DNA Project is fairly simple, and I'm sure most
1. As much as possible the participants need to be upgraded to at least 37
markers. A twelve marker test can match with half the people in Ireland but
is not of much use in finding real matches. I think Kevin is on board here
as he has been pushing this for years.
2. We need more input from the participants on their ancestors and the
details. I'm guilty here and promise to help update our line on the
3. There are these results that show no haplogroup, just a "-". My guess is
that they are I or I1. Marleen recently took over the White DNA project from
me where we had the same problem and by writing to FTDNA and requesting a
"backbone" haplogroup test was able to clear all the darn "dashes".
Kevin, consider writing FTDNA for that backbone haplogroup test.
Finally, I think it perfectly natural to marry cousins. After all my wife's
father was R1b1b2a1b5 just like me. Celts...
