Thanks Vince and the others for the input. This is my first family line
that has tested as R1a so some of this is new to me. My cousin's 67-marker
results were just completed a couple days ago so we are still trying to
determine the significance of this 37-marker semi-close match and the two
11/12 matches with other Lanes. The 37-marker match with the other Lane is
the only match of any kind with GD 6 or less that shows up in Ysearch.
One of the 12-marker matches was also showing up in the 67-marker match
section with a GD of 6. However, the person's entry on the Lane project
page had only 12 markers from a Genographic kit. I just now found out that
this person actually did a separate 67-marker test under a new kit number
but hasn't joined this kit to the Lane project yet or uploaded to Ysearch.
So, I'm trying to get him to do both of these things so we can see his
markers. I'm waiting to hear back from the other 12-marker testee whose kit
number is greater than my Lane cousin's kit number indicating he tested very
recently and may be awaiting more results.
My Lanes show up in the New Bern area of southeast North Carolina in the
mid-18th century. New Bern could be considered a coastal city with easy
access to the sea via the Neuse River. Many who settled this area in the
early days did so by sea rather than by land. So, a connection between my
NC Lanes and New England Lanes could make sense. I think I'm beginning to
lean towards "probably" now too, especially with the unusual DYS388. Of
course, trying to verify this probable relationship with a paper trail may
be a challenge, but we may at least have some clues on where to look.

Let me add to this discussion that both R1a Lane haplotypes have the
somewhat unusual DYS388=10.
Robert Stafford suggested testing more cousins, which is a very good
plan, and the Lane surname project at FTDNA already has two other R1a
members with DYS388=10 and long paper trails who would be especially
I would especially look for a way to get these other two to upgrade
to 25 or 37 markers.
From purely subjective point of view, having four R1a Lanes with
close 12 marker results including one unusual allele might tip the
scale on close relationship from "possibly" to "probably".
