    Oh, BTW, my markers 26-37 are due today. Of course, I understand that date is a ballpark lab estimate, but I hope they come in.

    It will give me more to play with.

    I think I want to focus now on recruiting more members for one of my surname projects. My primary surname project is actually the Steffen Project. We only have six members. We need many more (especially since none of us match!). I joined it because of suspected but unconfirmed descent from a man whose surname was originally the German Stephan (Steffen) but who changed it to Stevens (also Stephens).

    That can occupy my mind while I wait for my Deep SNP-R1b thingamabob.

    It is interesting that my haplotype is much more common in northern Germany and in Scandinavia than anywhere else.

    Then again, my connection to the man whose surname was Stephan is tenuous at best.

    We'll see what turns up.

    Great stuff hearing about your Family's Citizenship success Stevo.

    June 9th is my new SNP Results Target date.

    Also my wife has just sealed her dna samples in an envelope, and I'm off to the post-office to mail it.

    I'll be back!
    Thanks, brother.

    My SNP target date (Batch 155) is July 17.

    Glad to hear your wife is being tested.

    Getting my wife and her family to test is proving more difficult than I thought.

    They suffer from a tradition of fear and secrecy instilled in them by years of anti-Semitic persecution in Russia and the Soviet Union. They're not in a hurry to give up too much information.

    Yeah, it's one of the rewards of being a public school teacher: summers off.

    For the last nine years or so I have taught summer school every summer.

    This summer is mine.

    I'm going to catch some crabs and some fish, do some hiking, and maybe chase my paternal ancestors' paper trail up in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia.

    Oh . . . and we will probably visit Niagara Falls, Ontario, as well, because that is one of my favorite places in the world.

    And my tomatoes are all doing great, night temps are on the way back up, squash is all OK, too. LOL, we gamble every year. If you wait til 'they' say it's ok to put tomatoes in, you might not end up with any ripe fruit by the time September is under way. I've lost them all mid June before, and had them all freeze in mid Septembr. I can see the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada from my kitchen window, and we're at about 4550'.

    Stevo, congrats to your wife
    Where are you? Reno?

    Thanks for the kind words.

    May your produce grow abundantly and be large and flavorful.

    Da . . . er, yes, she is.

    My wife is a native of Volgograd and a graduate of the technical university there where her father was a professor.

    She is Lithuanian/Byelorussian-Jewish on her dad's side and Polish-Ukrainian on her mom's.

    ARGH! Wrong emails from FTDNA!!

    Hooray!

    I made it into Batch 155!

    I was afraid I was too late, but thank God for the time difference between Virginia and Arizona.

    The target results date for my R1b Deep SNP is July 17, 2006.

    I will be off work on summer vacation, so I can annoy everyone with lots of posts here and in the Batch 155 thread!
