2 day DNA Discount

If any of you are interested in exploring which group of RUNCIMANs you most closely relate to, you may be interested to see that Family Tree DNA, the company we use for the RUNCIMAN Surname DNA project, is having a 2day sale (finishes midnight Sat Apr 21st (?Houston time?).

If you do decide to join, and a sale is an excellent time to do so, make sure that you follow the order link from the project to automatically be enrolled in the RUNCIMAN project. Privacy can be guaranteed, all those named on the project pages have agreed to be so shown.
is the order link, but make sure you are getting the prices shown below

Check out the One Name Study Wanted! pages
for those lines particularly wanted to see who fits where, and the summary DNA project pages to see if your line is already represented
Joining the project already makes you eligible for a project discount, but the prices have been discounted further:
To be of relevance for the RUNCIMAN project the person testing has to be a direct male line RUNCIMAN, sorry about the discrimination, but anyone descended via the female line doesn't have the Y-dna passed down the chain from father to son.
Current Group price/SALE PRICE
Y-DNA 37 $149 / $129
Y-DNA 67 $238 / $199
would be the best for the project but the following may be of personal interest:
Family Finder $289 / $199
FF+ Y-DNA 37 $438 / $328
FF + mtDNAPlus $438 / $328
Comprehensive (FF + FMS + Y-DNA 67) $797 / $657

Any questions, just ask, this is a very good opportunity to expand our knowledge of how the RUNCIMAN families may, or may not relate.

The lineage section of the One Name Study has been updated.
A place index, and a map have been included on the site.
The map shows all birth and death places where geocoding has been added to the birth/death place for anyone included on the site - it's a wonderful way to check the geocoding as you find events out in the middle of the ocean where they were not, in general, born!

Check the recent changes index for included people that have been updated in some way.
In addition several trees may well have updated information on them now, eg that for the Inchture family of James and Susan (DONALDSON) RUNCIMAN, whose son James has now been included, given recent correspondence about the family.
