Official GREATHOUSE Point DNA Project Update
« on: May 28, 2005, 08:46:39 AM »
Greathouse Cousins,

The ball is really rolling on our DNA project.  In an effort to keep everyone updated with the current status of our official Greathouse Point and Greathouse Cousin Network (GP/GCN) DNA project, I'd like to share the following updated information with you.  

As you know, DNA Heritage, www.dnaheritage.com , has been chosen to administer the testing of DNA samples for our official GP/GCN DNA Project.  

For more information or if you would like to join our DNA project, please see http://www.greathousedna.us .

In order to participate in our Greathouse Surname DNA Project, you need to be a male with the GREATHOUSE surname. Your Y-Chromosome, that of your father, your brothers, your father's brothers and sons (males with the GREATHOUSE surname) will be identical (except for rare mutations). If you are a female GREATHOUSE descendant, encourage your father or brother to take the test if your maiden name is Greathouse, otherwise your male Greathouse cousins, uncles, etc. will work. Ideally there should be two participants from each branch of your family to allow for unrecorded adoptions, etc. and to verify and confirm each other's test results.

GREATHOUSE DNA Project Update follows:

DNA Heritage
5 kits ordered
1 kit returned
1 result imported from Family Tree DNA
1 result published in DNA Heritage's Oracle database

Note: Imported result was for a participant who had individually tested with Family Tree DNA prior to the existance of any GREATHOUSE Surname DNA Project.

Please notify us when you join the project, and include your Greathouse lineage in the following sample format.

My lineage, for example, is:

John Greathouse Sr. m. Sarah "Sallie" McDade
..Edward "Ned" Greathouse m. Matilda Blosser
....Isaac Benjamin Greathouse m. Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Tanner-Greathouse-Tucker
......Ervin M. Greathouse m. Effie Leveary Webb
........Paul "Dick" Greathouse m. Zadia Dale Price
..........Paul Richard Greathouse m. Sharon Kay Boggs
............Richard Ivan Greathouse -> me

Greathouse Cousins,

We would like to share with you the the following updated information on our official Greathouse Point DNA Project.

DNA Heritage
---------------------
8 participants
7 kits ordered
4 kits returned
1 result imported from Family Tree DNA
3 results published in DNA Heritage's Oracle database

Note: Imported result was for a participant who had individually tested with Family Tree DNA prior to the existance of any GREATHOUSE Surname DNA Project.

Notes on Results
----------------------
We currently have 3 participants whose YDNA test results are a close match. Two participants match 100%. The third participant's markers match on every marker but 3 with those 3 markers off by 1.

Thanks,
Rick
