BLAIR DNA Project Update

Status through January 14, 2014

Markers Tested: 12 25 37 67 111 Total
Number of Participants 6 42 111 40 16 215
Number of Test Results 7 41 110 38 14 210
Results Pending -1 1 1 2 2 5

The 215 participants represent 152 different oldest known ancestors.

Of the 210 test results received, 145 have been grouped together into 9 groups. Participants are included in groups when their test results closely match other participants with whom they DO NOT share a known oldest ancestor. 32 other participants are in included in a category referred to as UnGrouped Matches (UGMs). UGMs are participants who closely match other participants with whom they DO share a known oldest ancestor.

Group 1 (Blair of Blair descendants) consists of 57 participants with 42 different oldest known ancestors. This group appears to share a common ancestor with the only known descendant of the original Blair of Blair.

Group 2 consists of 11 participants, with 9 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 3 now has 28 participants, with 22 different oldest known ancestors. This group consists of 21 participants who have a value of 26 on marker 2, a value that is very rare, and 6 participants who have a value of 25 on marker 2.

Group 4 has 14 participants, with 11 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 5 (Blair of Ladymuir) consists of 19 participants, with 14 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 6 consists of 4 participants with 4 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 7 consists of 3 participants with 2 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 8 consists of 3 participants with 3 different oldest known ancestors.

Group 9 consists of 6 participants with 4 different oldest known ancestors.

UGMs consist of 31 participants with 14 different oldest known ancestors.

Information Release Form
Blair DNA Project policy forbids the release of any participant information, other than participant ID, oldest ancestor, and marker values, without written permission of the participant. All participants are encouraged, but not required, to fill out and sign an Information Release Form with contact information. Each participant chooses exactly what information he or she wishes to provide. So far 55 participants have signed the Release. If you have not yet done so, please consider filling one out. This is particularly important if you belong to one of the groups of closely related Blairs. To see if I have received an Information Release Form from you should Click Here.

Your FTDNA Participant Webpage
Each participant in this DNA project has an FTDNA webpage. It can be reached at:
http://www.familytreedna.com/ftLogin.asp?kit=xxxx&code=yyyyy
where xxxx is your kit number (participant ID) and yyyyy is a security code provided to you by FTDNA when your kit was received by FTDNA. If you do not have your security code, contact me and I'll give it to you.

Your Webpage has several sections: Y-DNA Matches, Recent Ethnic Origins, Haplogroup, and Y-DNA DYS Values. Each of these is explained in detail on the Webpage. The two you should be most interested in are Y-DNA DYS Values and Y-DNA Matches. The Y-DNA DYS Values lists your marker values and the Y-DNA Matches lists other participants who match your markers 12 for 12, 11 for 12, 25 for 25, 24 for 25, or 23 for 25. It will only show matches with those who have signed the FTDNA Release Form when they submitted their DNA sample. Initially it will only show matches within the surname project, but I'll explain how to change this later.

There are also tabs at the top of the page to order additional tests or certificates and to update contact information.
