I am writing to tell you about exciting new research for the I1 subgroup to which your DNA signature belongs.This subgroup was identified several years ago by Dr. Ken Nordtvedt.
This spring, on Dr. Nordtvedt's recommendation, a generous donor contributed $750 to sponsor a member of the AS7E subgroup for Family Tree's Walk-through-the-Y (WTY) test, the purpose of which is to discover new SNPs which can be used to identify subgroups, branches of subgroups, and even individual families.The discovery of two new SNPs by the AS7E WTY--L1274 and L1275-- was announced late last week.Dr. Nordtvedt is now recommending that two more men from the AS7E subgroup test each of these SNPs.The cost of testing an individual SNP is quite modest, at only $29 each.Two families have already volunteered, but we need two more volunteers from other AS7E families.
If you want to participate in this research, please let me know.We need to co-ordinate our orders so that no money is wasted on duplicate or unnecessary tests.
Meanwhile, I recommend strongly that you join the Haplogroup I1 project if you haven't yet done so.To join, login at Family Tree and choose Join projects from the left side of your home page.You will find the Haplogroup I1 project in bold print under the letter Iin the alphabet menu.

How to determine whether you are AS7E:
If you belong to Haplogroup I1 and have 14/15 at 385, 22 at DYS 390, 12 at 392, 9 at 460, and 12/14/16/16 at 464, then you are AS7E.Some AS7Es will not have all of these values, but all will have most of them, especially the 12 at 392.
