Study Origins

Where did we come from?  How did we get here?

Admittedly, not a simple topic to address in a blog post.  The folks at the FTNDA R1b-U106 Group  (an upstream haplogroup to the PSHG) are adding more and more insights every day through their work. The work they do is an impressive example of the combination of many different areas of study.  And this is just one study group, within one Y-DNA haplogroup, among many.

The origins of the PSHG Study are equally interesting.  The chronicle, from genealogy to genetic data, can be read at Art B. Staples, Jr.’s STAPLE & STAPLES MY FAMILY BRANCH (S&SMFB) Website: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~staples/index.htm

For members, the work described here is a great reminder of where we come from.  For  non-members, it’s a step by step guide to what’s possible.  And for everyone, it servers as an enduring reference in the study of genetic genealogy.

Thank you Art.
