How useful is it?
At 43 markers there should, apparently, be either 39/43, 40/43, 41/43,
42/43 and 43/43 perfect matches to suggest a possible common ancestor.
We are needing more participants before we can come to any clear conclusions,
especially from known related lines.
So far, one is very clearly not from a common male ancestor.
The others are difficult to work out. They appear (to me) to be very
similar indeed, yet there are small differences on a few of the markers,
more that suggested above. This MAY suggest a relationship that is
distant in time.
How much does it cost? Currently (2010) 43 markers cost $189
How do we raise the money? You can donate to the I'Anson
project through DNA Heritage website to help build up a fund for those
who cannot afford or are unwilling to pay the full fee.
