Hi Diana

What if one major aim of the project is to work out how relatively common
each haplogroup is in a set of related regions?

Once you split them into different projects the sampling for each haplogroup
will work differently, or let's say more differently than otherwise. This
could be caused by something as simple as one project having more active

One obvious way to deal with large projects -- surname or regional -- is to
break them down by haplogroup. People in different haplogroups haven't had a
common ancestor in thousands of years, so I see no earthly reason to keep
in the same project, unless the project is small and easily managed as it
