What do you mean by "a suggestion of connection" - what are the real numbers? What is the data?
My background is as a biochemist and I like to see the real data. Unfortunately because the Sheldon project does not use the available yDNA results page provided by FTDNA it is impossible to SEE the data.
I would like to suggest that you use that format to assist Sheldon researchers. It is very, very easy to use . . . I am Admin for three surname projects and use that format for all three. You do NOT use the names of participants but you DO use the names of each participant's First-Known-Sheldon ancestor. That makes the data provided by this test very useful for everyone!
