A New SNP Panel for the Lancashire Clan

I have just set up a new SNP Panel at YSEQ for the Lancashire Clan. It is called the R1b-A11378 Panel.

To interpret, this is a DNA test which tests for the best 6 mutations that were unique to Eric Warburton in his BigY DNA test, plus the last one he shared with anyone else.

The objective is to build a Tree of Trees, or a tree that links all the clan trees of the Lancashire Group together. This done by testing one person from each clan to see how many of Eric’s unique mutations they share. The result might be something like the sketch below.
