Creeping closer

The next step towards the present on the I1 Haplogroup tree has been returned, and the haplogroup tree on DNA Surnames has been updated to reflect this. Also check out the current ISOGG I1 tree

The branch of the tree that Kevin (R-8), and by implication, his matches, is now Z60+ aka I1a2a1

The time estimates from the I1 project currently put this branch at about 3-4500 years ago - ie creeping into recorded history! Take a look at the Timeline of Prehistoric Scotland to put this into context. But bear in mind all such dna time estimates are subject to variation.

Many thanks to those who have donated to the RUNCIMAN DNA Project general fund. Your generous donations allow this testing to continue.
