I figured it out (I think). :)

I bought a Y-DNA37 kit from Family Tree DNA. Now I wait for it to be delivered.....

Very good. The Morrison DNA Project website is www.geneticousins.com/morrison . Test kits are available at a discount if you join the project first.

Have you joined the project and sent in your release form? If yes, I'm sure the project manager will see your results and add them as soon as he has time.

The Morrison DNA Project website ( www.geneticousins.com/morrison ) was updated this week. See Subgroup H3 for your line.

Wonderful - thanks very much.
I predicted I would be clustered into 'J', but this is an interesting surprise.

Is the Morrison DNA Project still going on? Where can I find more about it?

Where do I get more information regarding the dna testing? The other link posted isn't working.

Recent changes in privacy policies at Family Tree DNA necessitated that Morrison DNA Project reports use the FTDNA website. Reports are currently available to project members at that site: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/morrison/about

Hello - I am a new member and interested in determining my paternal lineage (with samples from my brother, Donald); so 1/ wondering what the best kit is to do this, and 2/ if I obtain this via a Canadian company, would you be able to suggest the best company to use? Mainly trying to avoid the very high foreign exchange, but if it means not getting a true result, I'd be willing to pay that. Thank you for any help you're able to provide :) Neila Morrison, Coquitlam, BC

The best way to participate in the Morrison DNA Project at present is through Family Tree DNA. Results from other companies are at a great disadvantage in that they can be compared to results at FTDNA, but will not appear on the Morrison project website and will not be visible to other participants. The 37-marker Y-DNA test remains the standard for initial participation in the project.
