New Y-DNA results on modal for I1 group

Check out the Summary DNA page for  our latest set of Y-DNA results - page down to the pedigree linked table.
Runciman (R-20), another descendant of William of Crail (lineage 1b), has tested to Y-DNA67 and turns out to be an exact match to Jerry, R-2 from lineage 1a.

Updates to other pages will follow in due course.
6th Nov update: Which they now have.
The more detailed DNA project pages on DNASurnames have also been updated, specifically  to include the new DNA result but also to adjust the overall derived DNA signature for Lineage 1 (I1 haplogroup).

Not quite another Inventive Indexing entry, as in this case it is actually how the original document has Runciman spelt.
Thanks to Sandra for joining the dots to identify that Netty PAINE daughter of John RUNICIONAN  and "unknown", was actually Janet, daughter of John RUNCIMAN and Jean ANDERSON.
(The family emigrated from Berwickshire, sailing on the "Charlotte Harrison" which arrived in New York in July 1851, and settled in Ohio. They belong to the line of James RUNCIMAN & Agnes HERRIOT, lineage 2a on the One Name Study pages - LIH)
