New members / July – August 2010

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)

and

#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:

Ancestry DNA
http://dna.ancestry.com/welcome.aspx

(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.

Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMFG)
http://www.smgf.org/index.jspx

(they have 4 Roche/Roach entries)
You can search their database for DNA matches via this link:
http://www.genetree.com/

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.

    Not sure what to do with DYS 19 a and 19b in Ancestry DNA as Family Tree DNA only gives a DYS19 value.

      Chris, you can input your DYS19 value into Ancestry DYS19a and leave DYS19b blank. Most of the ancestry entries do not have a value for DYS19b, so leaving it blank will not effect the possible matches.
