A side project has been developing for the descendants of William SturDEvant 1675 CT. While we have always been able to tell if a person was indeed a descendant (or very close blood) of William through dna testing, we have not been able to tell as to which grandson and great grandson of William that person is through.
This is a numbers problem. More markers tested means more comparisons, which improves chances of useful information.
So when DNA Heritage offered a 15 marker upgrade we want to try to take advantage of it. I have upgraded my results and we have a comparison test in the pipeline. My results are in. You can see them with this document;
As I told the group on Yahoo, this single result so far means nothing. We must have comparisons. If a variation is found we will encourage the other participants to upgrade. If not, then we may pursue the more expansive, but expensive, tests at Family Tree DNA.
Once we have a comparison test, I will link this document from the result_all pdf, and the results page on the blog.
