Subject: Re: [DNA] Y-STR testing rate slowing down?
Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2006 10:32:23 EST
My projects are very active with new participants. Even the surnames that
have little interest have been picking up. I can't keep up with the new results
as I, still, have lots of other things going on.
In a message dated 1/13/2006 12:59:36 AM Central Standard Time,
Is it my imagination or are we seeing a significant drop in the
number of new Y-STR participants? There were a few months last year
when I would frequently see new FTDNA matches/near matches, or new
matches at Ysearch, or new matches at RG, etc. It seems like it has
been several months since I have seen any new matches/near matches on
any database. This suggests to me that tests for new participants
aren't coming in. It seems that I have seen lots of previous
participants adding new tests, but fewer new participants. How is it
going for others?
