Again its been a relatively quiet quarter with just three new members joining the Reeves DNA Project at FtDNA and the total current membership is now 416 (as of 30 Dec 2022).
During October we welcomed Jana and Mary and during December we welcomed Kimberly. All three had taken an AT-DNA (Family Finder) test.
The absence of any new male members during the past quarter means there are no new Y-DNA results to report.
Unlike some one name DNA studies, the Reeves DNA Project is happy to welcome all those with an interest in the Reeves surname (and its variants), regardless of their gender or their surname. For those who have taken a Y-DNA test, if your results match one of our pre-existing Groups, we will automatically link your kit with that group. All other Y-DNA test results remain in the ungrouped pool.
However, keeping the ungrouped pool free of Y-DNA results we know should never expect a Reeves Y-DNA match makes life much easier for both the admins and those project members hoping to find a Reeves Y-DNA match. If your connection to the R*v*(s) surname is from a female ancestor and you have taken a Y-DNA test, please take a minute to read DNA Group XX's home page within TRP.
During the past quarter we've seen no notifications for new Family Finder results (from a new at-DNA Donor) and no notification of the results from a new mt-DNA donor.
