Thanks for the reply. I too an quite busy right now, but at a later
date, I might be interested. In addition to a client going live on
financials this month, I am expecting my first grandchild imminently.
You seem to be very good with the statistical part of this, which I'm
not, and I thought maybe you had some additional interest in that area.
I'm sure that someone will over time.
Good luck with the genealogy part. As for mine, I'm waiting for Mom's
DNA Print to see what she turns up. She is the German (Amish and 1850's
immigrant). In addition, my long-standing Estes brick wall is hopefully
crumbling slowly. I'm trying to "hurry", as my 20 year genealogy
"cousin" is 82 and wants to know who the parents of John R Estes were.
After that connection, we have back in England into the 1400s. We just
have to connect up, and we have beaten this horse for many, many years.
I finally gave up and went back to Halifax Co VA last fall to do
original research, which eliminated many theories (mostly mine) but
confirmed none. However, it did leave 2 or 3 standing. Only 1 can be
accurate, so I'm slowly slaying that dragon.
Gotta run for now.
Thanks again for putting the data base up.

I have not thought about nor decided exactly what I will do with the
data in the long run. At least one person, whose name escapes me at this
moment, has looked at the data and posted a brief summary on the list
previously. Possibly that person wants to take another look and
resummarize it for the benefit of our list. If you or someone wants to
do another brief summary, for the benefit of this list, go right ahead.
I don't have time to do that right now. But if you or someone else has
some other more extensive Genealogy and DNA project research idea for
use of the Log data, contact me. But my sole initial reason, and main
purpose of providing the DNAPrint Test Results Log, was as a courtesy to
the members of this list to help us all understand this new type DNA
test better, by sharing our respective results and comments. Synergy at
And I'm busy, busy, busy, too. Right now my PA German Ethnic Group DNA
Project is in the initial phase and is my main focus, in addition to
other Genetics and Genealogy projects, such as my two Y-DNA surname
projects. And then there is my traditional genealogy research too. In an
hour I have to run over to the local public library to find an obituary
in the local newspaper microfilms for someone who died in 1956, for a
second cousin of mine. Too many surnames, not enough time. :-) I'm a
hobby genealogist first and a hobby geneticist second. These various DNA
tests are tools to help us, and are very interesting to learn about, but
genealogy is still my number one hobby.
