National Geographic Geno 2.0 project


I have been looking at National Geographic Geno 2.0 project. Great!

Is this the project you are raising money for?No. That was for the Walk through the Y for the Wheaton Group B of which you are a member. This will cover deep ancestry on the Y for all in Group B. We also have one member from Group B and Group D that have ordered Geno 2.0 kits. Their results with regard to the Y will be reflective of the whole group.

Or do we contact National Geographic for this “new test”? For now it is only available through the Genographic 2.0 website. You will however be able to link your results to your profile at FTDNA. Eventually you should be able to order through FTDNA.

Or does National Geographic use our initial DNA sample for this new Geno 2.0 test? A new sample is required.

Or can this be purchased through Family Tree somehow so the results are added to our current Kit results? Not at this time. The test includes lots more than the Y-DNA so some of you may want to order because of the other components. For our group purposes it is only necessary to have one person from each group test.

Thank you Thomas! Additional money in our account is held for the benefit of the overall project. If anyone makes a donation they can specify the purpose for which it is to be used. I am most likely to approve small expenditures rather than large ie: Individual SNPs at $29 or a sale 12 marker kit for $59. Or provide matching funds for someone who wants to upgrade but can’t afford the whole amount. If we get enough of a fund I will loosen up a little. 😉
