I'm the Administrator of twenty DNA projects based at FamilyTreeDNA (one regional project, eighteen Y-DNA surname projects, and one FamilyFinder project); plus, I'm the DNA Administrator for the Lyon(s) Families Association and a Co-Administrator of the Haplogroup R-DF99 project at FTDNA.  I've also done analyses of Y-DNA test results from other projects for a few of my family lines or by request. 

The projects are:

Danish Demes Regional DNA Project
R1b-DF99 Haplogroup Project
BIDDLE / BECHTEL CARRICO CORBIN CUPP
ELY RASEY REASON ROSE STRAUB
Lyon(s) Families Association DNA Project
IDavis-TThompson Y-DNA Project
plus
Matching and Mutual Matching from the FamilyFinder Testing of Descendants of
James DAVIS & Hannah RAMSEY and/or Col. Henry CLARK & Sarah JONES
FTDNA requires that this page be privatized, so to get a password, you must be a tested and matching family member.
I adopted or created the following Y-DNA surnames projects because they were needed.  I'm willing to give up any of them to a new administrator willing to dedicate themselves to the surname(s).  If you wish, I will stay on as Admin or Co-Admin as long as you feel you would like some help.  Please contact me if you are interested.

Comparisons of ISOGG vs. FTDNA Y-DNA Haplotrees
The purpose of these trees is to serve my Y-DNA surname project members by comparing the FTDNA and ISOGG trees.
Initially, the FTDNA trees lagged only slightly behind the ISOGG trees, but it now appears FTDNA has completely stopped
updating its trees, instead using the "shorthand" names for subclades.  Thus, clients will now have to keep track of their 
placement on the current haplotree for themselves.  While these trees obviously include the updated ISOGG trees,
they do not incorporate the advances found in the FTDNA Draft Tree or other research in progress.

WARNING:  MOST OF THESE ARE WAY OUT-OF-DATE (don't know when or if I'll find time to update them).
