Subject: Re: [DNA] requiring ancestor trees

Cathy, some people send me the entire chart, but all that require is the
straight line from the earliest ancestor of the surname to the participant,
however, I do not publish later than about the year 1900. The chart is to
identify the line from which the DNA came. I feel that the markers are worthless in
a genealogy research sense without others knowing the time and location of
the surname being tested.

This chart is a requirement in joining my project. I do not publish the name
of the DNA donor, but do use the Kit Number and the earliest ancestor to ID
the line next to the makrers, then with a click on the Kit Number you can see
the entire line.

It is not password protected, as we want everyone to see it so that they
will be encouraged to join if they are trying to connect to certain lines.

An example:

Julia, when you refer to the Ancestor Tree, is this a pedigree chart you
requesting, or just the straight paternal line being tested? Are you
the trees on a website for all members of your study to view? If so, is it
password protected? I am asking because I am still gathering information
the best way for me to approach a y-dna study.
