Subject: Re: [DNA] New Germany FTDNA genetic genealogy project launched

In a message dated 10/11/2005 10:07:03 AM Eastern Standard Time,
I am a newbie as well :)
I wonder if you are looking at a particular part of Germany?
The paper trail on my brother for my fathers Y-line should go back to
border of Switzerland/Germany. There are a number of other lines that
go back into Imnau, Germany or thereabouts. Many of my fathers lines
go back to the Southwestern area of Germany.
I currently belong to the FISCHER project, my brothers is F3 in that
FTDNA project. His results are not in yet - and I am confused to when
they will be in. I have also order the mtDNA and have no earthly idea
what project to participate in . In both cases these are the lines
with obstacles that have made them really difficult to trace.
I am waiting for an off line email reply from Charles K so we can decide
what seems to be the best approach to an FTDNA focused project on genetic
genealogy of German origins. As soon a we figure that out we will try to post some
info again about that here. Originally I was trying to launch a place focused
on German ancestral origins where we could begin to see posts of a persons
FTDNA results and haplogroups. I envisioned this starting as the whole area of
Germany and as members joined then grouping their areas within Germany and
their surnames or haplogroups. One person (not Charles that I know of) thinks
there would be a huge potential group that would be canidates to join a project
with too wide of a scope..all of Germany. This may turn out to be the case. I
had hoped at the site groups could be established and shown there geographically
within Germany as memebrs joined with different results representing
different areas and also by haplogroup.
Presently I don't know if there would be an overwhelming number of new
joining members, but it would be good to accumulate consierable data in my opinion
and try to organize what is seen in Germany and specific areas in Germany and
various haplogroups there.
