everything rolling at FTDNA (see below). As you've kindly advised, I
have chosen the option to cause "my matches to be set against the
entire database." I found the Adoptees DNA Project you mentioned.
There appears to be no "Request to Join" link or even an email
contact. So I will call the friendly folks at FTDNA on Monday and
make my request verbally.

Well, a difference is still there -- a mutation to any copy of
a multi-copy marker is counted as a mutation to the marker
collectively. However, the rate determined collectively is
then expressed as a per-copy rate for the purposes of comparing
against the non-palindromic markers and/or computing an

- 14. Re: [DNA] R1a1 DIfferences 
- The latter with 388 = 10 is what I called the "English" R1a clade, although
I can't confirm you other marker values without checking. It was originally
found in robust quantity in southwest England and Wales. Since, 388 = 10
R1a has been found in Norway as well. I'd have to look again at the
extended haplotypes, but I think the Norwegian version and English version
had a difference.
There are some real aficianados from England who have this clade of R1a and
have organized the data concerning it.

My husband's tests came back on the button and my mtDNA came back early, as did my cousin's DNA.
When I just tried to log-in, I got "service unavailable" so I'm hoping when FTDNA is fully back online, our results will post too. I believe the 37 marker upgrade was "due" 12/31/07.
I can't help but watch the pot!
