"....WE have about 50 participants and it takes all 37 to know who you are
kin " to in our little group.
What bothers me is we get all the e-mails from 12 marker people who think
they are kin.....
I personally see the Genographic Project as a marketing tool....."
You are correct...and now we are finding out that 12 is not enough even for
Many of the folks who write in about 12 markers are newbies who are just
getting their feet wet with this new genealogical tool and we shall get many
more of these unless the DNA testing companies delete this test from their
product line in favor of 25, 37, or now the FTDNA 37 + the EA 18.
And that is a unique observation about the GENOGRAPHIC project. It might as
well be a clandestine CIA project as we have not heard from Wells or his
colleagues. Would not if be a shame to perform a 100,000 NRY STR tests at
the 12 marker level and find out that that was not enough to achieve the
goals that were set forth....?
