Reeves DNA Project Updates - 1q 2023

Unlike the previous two quarters, we've seen some significant activity during the past quarter, both in terms of membership and DNA results.

We had nine new members joining the Reeves DNA Project at FtDNA and the total current membership is now 425 (as of 25 March 2023).

During January we welcomed William. February was much busier and we welcomed Donald, Elizabeth, Clayton, Shaun and Floyd. So far in March we're pleased to welcome Michael_R, Michael_H and Robert.

Through the past quarter we've received the results for seven new Y-DNA members, with one additional set of results for a new member currently being processed by FtDNA
    Kit 836428 for WW                          presently ungrouped
    Kit 995250 for DR                          DNA Group 03
    Kit 995538 for RR                          DNA Group 03
    Kit AM13132 for CW                         presently ungrouped
    Kit B227983 for SC                         DNA Group 06b
    Kit B823085 for MH                         DNA Group 03
    Kit B855196 for Floyd Dowell               DNA Group XX
We are grateful to Floyd who has kindly completed our DNA Donor Permission e-mail and also confirmed his most recent R*V*(s) ancestor was female.. We would encourage all new Y-DNA donors or their representatives to make contact and allow us to identify them within TRP.

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 one notifications for new Family Finder results (from a new at-DNA Donor) and and one notification of the results from a new mt-DNA donor.

If you missed last quarter's summary the DNA Project Update for 4q2022 is available here.
