I wanted to congratulate Richard on his new venture with r1b.org and necessary step for our better understanding so thank you for taking this leap.

I asked about u152.org on dna communities a few weeks ago as I wasn't able to access it for at least a month now and was informed of your new site.

Was reading a few of the articles that someone posted in the p312 group, http://r1b.org/?page_id=114 and, http://r1b.org/?page_id=112

Richard you must have heard of Explico (Project |Rollo) Thinking maybe he could help with your goals or at the very least share information.

"January 2011
HAPPY NEW YEAR from the Explico Expedition Team!! We have started 2011 by travelling to Turkey searching for Kelts (descendants of Celtic tribes in Anatolia) in isolated places. There are not many links on the internet regarding this, but here is an article article in the New York Times for those who are interested to know where in the Anatolian region we are (In short it's all about the Dying Gaul, King Midas, the Gordion Knot and of course the Greeks)."


We are still waiting on the results of "Project Rollo" of course to compare to the Sinclair's and other families whom claim descent from him.

Thanks Diana. I hope to get some content in there in the next few weeks.

Richard, it looks like you will solicit funding for projects, maybe even ancient DNA projects. Do you have plans for that?

Correct Mike, that was the main driver of the new site. At the rate we are going, it will be a long time before we have a representative sampling of ancient DNA to really understand the path our ancestors took. And finding R1b isn't enough, it is also about ruling areas out. I figured I'd help push the testing along a little bit if I could.
