    Do you have access to Facebook? The I-Z138 has a very active facebook group if you are interested.

    I just found this site last week. I have not been tested but I note that the I-Z138 Haplogroup goes back to John Oliver in Albany, NY. I am descended from Dutch farmers named Oliver who settled in the Albany area in the 17th Century, including at least three named John, or Dutch variants of the name. It seems likely that I am a part of this group. I have found few Olivers around from this line; the fact that one shows up in the data base suggests that I may have one cousin Oliver who has been tested.

    I am hoping to get a better understanding of what goes on here and see if I might contribute to the project in some meaningful way by being tested. FWIW I am the last Oliver on my branch of the family tree.

    cheers, Rich
