We have had some new members join the project in the last 2 months:
#169230 Roach (haplogroup E)
#29213 Rocha (haplogroup R1b1b2)
#N88072 Roache (haplogroup E1b1b1)
#187167 Roche (new order Y-37)
New member #N88072 Roache is a close match with the main E1b1b1 group and is related to the founding ancestor for this lineage. The other 2 members do not match any other project members at this stage.
In addition I have explored some other DNA testing companies for Roache entries on their databases; the main two are:
(they have 7 Roche/Roach entries; 4 R1b, and 1 each for E1b1b1, I2b, and I1).
Ancestry DNA allows you to set up a free account and input your Y-DNA results. Once this is done you are able to search the database for DNA matches. The link is at the bottom of their home page. I have done this for my results and found that the E1b1b1 entry is a close match for our main E1b1b1 group and is related to the founding ancestor for this lineage.
The access is similar to the Ancestry DNA situation; set up a free account and input your Y-DNA results. I have also done this for my results and found that one of the four entries was a close match for our E1b1b1 group.
If anyone decides to search these databases and finds a close match, please let me know. We could then add this additional information to our lineage chart.
