I'm the administrator of ten DNA projects based at FamilyTreeDNA (one regional project, eight Y-DNA surname projects, and one FamilyFinder project), plus I'm the DNA admin for the Lyon(s) Families Association.  I've also done analyses of Y-DNA test results from other projects for a few of my family lines or by request.  I'm unlikely to take on any more projects someone lock me in a padded cell if I so much as mention I'm considering it but I will probably continue to add individual analyses as time goes on. 

The projects are:

Danish Demes Regional DNA Project
BIDDLE / BECHTEL CARRICO CORBIN CUPP ELY RASEY REASON STRAUB
Lyon(s) Families Association DNA Project

The analyses are:

Y-DNA Haplogroup I1-M253 2014 Character Matrix and Haplotrees
(new version with modifications begun 27 February 2014)

As of 27 Feb 2014, first results of the FTDNA BigY tests began to return.  These new results are expected to greatly modify the Hg I1 SNP matrices compiled in December 2013.  Just in case someone wants to view the previous version, they will be maintained, at least for the time being:

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WARNING:  MOST OF THESE ARE CURRENTLY OUT-OF-DATE (updates in the works).
