ASBELL Surname *Y*D*N*A* Group Update # 2
Posted by: William Harvey (ID *****5156) Date: January 24, 2005 at 10:40:18
  of 499

We now have a total of seven participants: two have just recently returned kits and are waiting for lab processing on 12 marker tests; one existing 12-marker result is currently being upgraded to the 25 marker level.

We have four unique 12-marker haplotypes. One of these Y-D*N*A* marker groupings (Y haplogroups) includes three testees. The haplotypes are classified into Y Haplogroups in similar manner as is used for plant and animal classification.

We have received confirmation of a 33 of 37 marker match linking two families with over 75% probability of connection occurring within the past 300 years. This appears to be a solid connection due to the number of markers tested and the same Asbell (+variant) names.
They were unaware of each other prior to the testing

We have participants thus far from Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Pennsylvania.

At this point we have three ASBILLs, two ASBELLs, one ASBEL and one ASBYLL - we would like to have many more join this interesting project. I have to admit that thus far we are finding a lot less near-term relatedness than what I anticipated!

Please remember, your contacts with and encouragement of prospective ASBELL participants is our STRONGEST recruiting tool. Please use this tool diligently and often!

You may track the test results progress from the public group website provided by F*T*D*N*A* by clicking on :

The FamilyTree*D*N*A* web page provides a thorough review of the *Y*D*N*A* project procedures and the science and the value of Genetic Genealogy to your research.

Please contact either Delmar Asbill or myself with any questions you may have about your individual results/situation or about things in general. We will make every attempt to provide answers.
