The year 1605?

PS the dry as dust technical post announcing the updated analysis page can be translated to:

Statistical analysis of our Y-DNA results for the Haplogroup I1 matching lineages: David of Wanton Walls, William of Crail, Alexander of Meikle Pinkerton, and Thomas & Alison (GREIVE) RUNCIMAN show that it is likely that the common ancestor of all 4 matching lineages was born around 1605.
Given we have William of Crail's ancestry tentatively back to around 1675, that's roughly 3 or 4 generations - which paper trail we are unlikely to find unfortunately.
However, leaving Alexander of Meikle Pinkerton out of the mix, the shared ancestor between the other three lineages is nearer 1695. 

Haplogroup I1 analysis

The supplementary DNA page for the analysis of the I1 haplogroup Runcimans has been updated to include a phylogenetic tree, and an update to where we're currently at with SNP testing, ie the march towards the present down the haplogroup descendant tree of mankind.
The next step is being organized, watch this space.
