11th: New member, some updates

The addition to the project of a transferee from the National Genographic Project prompted a check of the existing results.
Updated results have now been posted for one of the kits who had upgraded his markers, and the results received to date for the transferee have been added.

I also had a quick look at whether or not any exciting new matches between participants had snuck in when I wasn't looking.
Checking only those tested to the same number of markers:
The 67 marker tests still only have the two known lines with their confirming matches.
For the 25 and 37 marker tests none are showing as close matches with each other.
For the 12 marker tests R-21 is an exact match to R-30 but would need an upgrade in markers to see how close that might be in practice.

Any member who hasn't yet lodged a pedigree is welcome to do so, and any ROWE (and variant surnames) males interested in seeing if they have any unknown genetic relations out there are very welcome to join in.

Should anyone have any interesting ROWE webpage links they'd like added to the supplementary pages on the DNA Projects Portal, click on the compiler link on those pages to notify the webmaster of the details.
