It's been a while since I've updated anything much visible to people. I have been hard at work in the background and is taking more than I figured. Nevertheless, progress is made. We now have 67 registered member. I've not advertized or encouraged registration until I have a better handle on the process. As people have been finding their way in, it is a learning experience about what doesn't work so well, leading to better solutions.
The process is to develop Patriarch Trees to include every Beasley descendant in the project plus additional Trees for those YDNA tests that have not joined the project. I have been doing the basic work on Ancestry.com and sharing access to people as they inquire. Here's what we now have:
R-BLUE CLAN 5 Trees
R-YELLOW CLAN 5 Trees
R-GREEN CLAN 1 Tree
R-RED CLAN 1 Tree
R-TEAL CLAN 2 Trees
E-OLIVE CLAN 2 Trees
I-SILVER CLAN 1 Tree
All the above CLANS have at least one YDNA Profile Match
R-WHITE CLAN 3 Trees
Each WHITE CLAN trees are in R Haplogroup but distinct un related trees with no matches.
We have perhaps another dozen tested individuals for whom trees have not yet been developed.
In addition, we have 16 Patriarch Trees for which we have no YDNA testing done. These are mostly from people who have joined the Project and submitted Pedigrees to form the basis of the Patriarch Tree.
What I'm trying to do right now is to get all the trees identified, cross-referenced with the supporting YDNA test and make sure they are basically sound in structure. Beyond that, I'm working to make on-line access for members outside of Ancestry.
Next I will be updating the Project profiles to make sure each member is properly referenced to the Haplogroup, CLAN and Patriarch Tree they belong to.
