2021 sadly started in much the same way 2020 ended, with only minimal activity within the Reeves DNA Project during January and February. Things have got a little busier in March and at the end of the first quarter of 2021 the project membership is 375, an increase of seven over the quarter.
As mentioned previously we were excited to see a new match to the members of the recently formed DNA Group 21. Beverly reached out to Stewart and he joined our project very early in January and his results were duly added to DNA Group 21. In February we welcomed David. March has been a little busier, with five new kits registered. We welcome Larry, Amy, Christopher, Michelle and Beverly R.
During the past quarter we've received the results for three new Y-DNA Donor members
Kit 906240 for DC presently ungrouped Kit 943060 for LH presently ungrouped Kit IN91351 for SR added to DNA Group 21We would encourage all new Y-DNA donors or their representatives to make contact and allow us to identify them within TRP.
The Y-DNA test results for two of our three new Y_DNA members are currently sitting in the Project’s ungrouped pool and we strongly suspect they are both members of our DNA Group XX. Whilst we will automatically move Y-DNA matched results to the appropriate Project Group, we do not move unmatched results to DNA Group XX with out explicit confirmation to TRP from the donor or their proxy. Please take a minute to read DNA Group XX's home page within TRP for information on how to provide consent. All it takes is a simple proforma e-mail as described on the Home page....
During the past quarter we've seen no notifications for new Family Finder results (from a new at-DNA Donor) and one notification of the results from a new mt-DNA donor.
