10th: Why this blog exists

This blog was created to provide the ROWE DNA Admin with a convenient place to publish a project diary.
I prefer this format over the forums because of the labelling facility, and consistency with several other projects.

Should you be an active ROWE researcher and wish for authorship rights, please contact the project admin (email address on each project page)

I note that the project does not have pedigrees for all of our participants.
If it is any easier, I am happy to accept gedcoms, but please, only for the direct lineages, and no bdm data on living people.

In addition to the basic project pages at FamilyTree DNA, and those at the WorldFamilies Network, you may also be interested in the DNA Surnames site a "portal" to a number of dna projects.
For the ROWE project, the information is in its infancy, but it is intended to be an more easily and automatically generated site to supplement the WorldFamlies Network pages.

9th: Latest set of results posted

12 marker results for kit R-31 have been added.
Yet another instance of the ubiquitous R1b1b2 haplogroup.

The result table has had a couple of similar results combined into the one colour coding as the Genetic Distance reports show they are only a GD of 1 apart.

Should anyone wish to hazard some educated guesses as to whether or not we are showing any ROWE lineage patterns here as yet, we'd love to hear from you.

If you are thinking of joining in the fun of DNA testing, now is a good time, as Family Tree DNA are offering discounts up to the end of December, for those joining via a surname project such as the ROWE (and variants) one.
