He was somewhat disabled by medical problems in 2013, but remains interested and motivated. Last year his son Chris picked up this effort on his behalf, and informally partnered with me to locate and select many of our "North/South cluster" project members for targeted SNP testing, or in some cases exploratory NextGen testing... I am very sorry to report that Chris died on Jan. 18th [2015]
    I searched this forum on the name Henry Zenker, and of the 14 hits, only two were on threads that have had a post since the beginning of 2018. I regret to report that Henry passed away last July, at the age of 96. Starting in the fall of 2013, he and his sons Chris and Steven were individually and collectively behind the extensive testing that enabled us -- with targeted SNPs, BigY, and FGC Elite testing -- to break down the North/South cluster (earlier identified by Dr. Ken Nordtvedt, based on a recognizable and widely shared off-modal STR pattern) into its major branches. Today, we know that "cluster" as R1b-Z220 and Subclades. Henry Zenker and his family had a big role in bringing our genetic genealogy community to the relatively advanced understanding we now enjoy of the phylogenetic tree below Z220. Many of us knew Henry also as a diligent follower of genealogical paper trails, who was willing and able to assist us in resolving difficult research questions.

    When I gave up being the admin of the old R1b-P312 Project, I passed the helm to Henry. He served as the project's admin for awhile until a stroke prevented him from carrying on.

    He was one of the good guys. May God have mercy on his soul.

    That’s very sad news. I sill have an email from him in 2012 shortly after my P312 results came back, advising me to test for Z220 next as I had the STR values indicative of the North/South Cluster.

    I have noticed a kit with an Italian flag on FTDNA's Big-Y Block Tree. I can't find any information about this person, however. So on block FGC23196 is Valois from France, and the kit from Italy. Block FGC3002 is my block which includes me and my 111 marker match who has a surname that could be Irish or Anglo-Irish, which Anglo-Irish is most likely. Block FGC23178 which has the Swede and the Dane. Then block FGC23177 which has the two Dutch kits and they are not close relatives, but not distant either. Is there anyway to ask FTDNA to contact the Italian kit?

    I don't know of any way. I can sign in as admin and look at the Valois descendant, but he doesn't have any matches (named as such by their funky algorithm) except you. I see the little Italian flag symbol also. It doesn't lead me anywhere.

    I know the kit in question hasn’t joined the DF27 project. I even checked several Italian oriented DNA projects and nothing. I’ll check the R1b project next. Maybe I’ll contact FTDNA customer service to see if they can assist.

    The "matches" program should show anybody who has tested at FTDNA, not just project members. I think the issue is probably the Italian-descent person's privacy settings.

    So an Italian, French, Dutch, Swede, Dane, Anglo-Irish, English, with a common ancestor at around 1000BCE. It’s all starting to come together and make sense. Not.
