    Donation Information and Updates


    We're taking donations as part of a crowdfunding initiative to order those tests of key importance to the online enthusiast community in South and South Central Asian genetic genealogy/history.

    You can donate to the general fund which will be used for tests according to priority and decided on by vote/consensus, or you can donate for a specific test or group of tests.

    Click here to see the spreadsheet with donation and balance information for the general and specific test funds

    Here are the current tests we're looking for with the high priority ones on top (and as money is donated, this list will be updated with any amounts donated specifically to these tests and not in the general fund):

    The tests themselves will be decided upon by consensus of the donaters but we're looking at FGC Y Prime ($750 at the time of this) and FTDNA Big Y ($575). All results will be sent to YFull for interpretation ($49) and inclusion in their tree. If anyone wants to share coupons or deals for tests, that would be a great help.

    General: $5.00

    If you are a member of one of the above haplogroups, or know someone who is, or have already been tested yourself, and/or are thinking of testing yourself, please post here and let us know. Once enough money is collected, a decision on which test to order is made, and a suitable subject identified through the community and contacted, the order will be placed and paid for by us.

    We are prioritizing some North Indian haplogroups to start off with since many of the entries already in the YFull tree from the HGDP are already South Indian (three groups were tested: Sri Lankan Tamil, Indian Telegu, and Bengali with one North Indian: Punjabis from Lahore)

    Please mention as much of the following as you prefer when donating if you don't want it to go to the general fund:

    • Haplogroup(s), specific or general (e.g, J2b2-M241 or J-General or J2-General or J2b-General)
    • Region, country, province, or city (e.g, Afghanistan, North India, South India, Punjab, Nepal (if distinguishing from North India), etc)
    • Ethnic group (e.g, Bengali, South India Brahmin, Punjabi Arain, Afghan Pashtun, etc)

    Please also mention what name or username you want the donation credited to in our spreadsheet or whether you want the donation to be anonymous.
