Hello Claudia,

It is very generous of you to offer to keep track of the mtDNA of the members of Nuestros Ranchos. The fact that you are bi-lingual will make it useful to all the members. It will get to be an increasingly bigger and more interesting job as more people send you their results. Then, of course, there is also Y-DNA to track.

On the other hand, we could set up a Nuestros Ranchos Dual Geographical Project at FamilyTreeDNA. It can be restricted to members of Nuestros Ranchos. It will automatically list all the results of those members who've tested their Y-DNA and/or mtDNA. It will also provide a discount to Nuestros Ranchos members who would like to test their DNA. People who have tested with FamilyTreeDNA are familiar with joining a surname or geographical project and could quickly add the Nuestros Ranchos project.

Administering the project is very simple. The administrator's job would be to approve new member applications by cross checking with our membership list. Other than the set-up, not much else needs to be done.

I would suggest that the project be in both Spanish and English. Therefore, the administrator, or a co-administrator should be bi-lingual.

If one of the administrators of Nuestros Ranchos approves of this idea, they can contact either FamilyTreeDNA or me for details.

Personally, I think it is a great idea.

Linda

Mine turns out to be Haplogroup "C" and I've traced my maternal line with documentation to Antonia Martinez married to Jose Cruz Sandoval. They lived in Contitlan, Zacatecas (between Juchipila and Moyahua) in 1800...DNA results were a bit of a surprise because in all the church records I have found for this family, they were indicated as being "Espanoles."

Hi Linda,
I like the idea of centralizing the Haplogroup tracking of NR members. While I did myself use FamilyTreeDNA for testing, I'm not sure how inclusive it would be for those who go with another lab to do their testing. I have noticed that lately, a handful of new genealogical DNA testing services have been popping up on line.

Would you be able to include NR member results if they don't use FamilyTreeDNA services? If so, and if NR admins feel good about this, then I'm all for it!

Thank you,
Claudia

Hi Claudia,

You are correct in believing that FamilyTreeDNA does not include results from other testing companies in their surname projects. However, there is a sister site hosted by Terry Barton called http://www.worldfamilies.net that does. Not only does it automatically pick up the information from FTDNA, but it allows the administrator to add results from other testing companies. There is also great support for the administrator from Terry. I have been inactive as administrator recently and Terry's group have kept my two groups up to date.

It is a great site that also allows its members to post their ancestral line on it Patriarch's page. Please check it out to see if it is what Nuestros Ranchos needs.
