Our BARTLETT-DNA Project (75 participants) began with several different R1b
family lines in Virginia, NC, SC, KY, TN. Then we got results from several
different New England family lines and they were all "I" Halplogroup - I
began to develop a theory that families in England with I heritage tended to
go migrate to New England and those in England with R1b heritage tended to
migrate to the southern states.

Has anyone else seen similar results?

Subject: [DNA] New England ancesters Y-DNA surname projects

Just a comment and a question.....
It's frustrating that there aren't really any Y-DNA surname projects for the
families of any of my colonial New England (mostly British) ancesters. These
are mostly well-known genealogies and some are even published and there
appear to be alot of people interested in these families on genealogy
websites......but no Y-DNA surname projects for them. Does anyone know of
any EASTMAN surname Y-DNA project(s)? Any EASTMAN men on here interested in
starting one? This is my mom's maiden name and the family is well reseached
(the earlier genealogy was done by a professional hired by George Eastman of
Kodak). My uncle and some cousins are interested in taking part if there are
any other Eastman's interested......
Could the reason that there are no Y-DNA surname projects for these families
be because they are so well researched and published? Please excuse my lack
of scientific /professional knowledge on this topic if this seems like a
stupid comment....
