As those who are members of the Douglas DNA project
will be aware, this is a busy week with developments in sorting out the Douglas lines.
We have identified 48 R1b1b2 participants in the Douglas group which includes the men with paper lineages to the Earls of Morton.
There are a further 12 R1b1b2 who are indicated to be Niall of 9 hostages descendants. Some of these claim Angus descent, some Morton , and some do not know.
A third group is descended from a common ancestor, William Douglas, born 1610. They are R1b1b2a1a. There are about 20 in this group.
There has also been work on the 'Young Scandinavian' base haplotype the 'Old Scandinavian' branch, as well to the 'Russian Plain' branch.
If you are not a member of this group, then maybe now would be a good time to join.
