Project Research Fund
You can help support the projects research by donating to the projects research fund.
Please note that this is administered by FTDNA (ie. the money goes to FTDNA, not to Angela). This also means that the funds that are in the group fund can only be used for testing done by FTDNA (my apologies to those members who have not tested with FTDNA).
How is the project research fund going to be used?
The group fund is going to be used for high priority testing. For instance the highest priority would be extending haplotypes of those in rare sub-clades, or sub-clade testing those who are close matches to those in rare subclades. On the other hand, the lowest priority would be testing individuals in large well defined clusters, or testing individuals that are closely related to others who have already had extended haplogroup and sub-clade testing.

If you wish to post your donation to FTDNA, print out the webpage, and fill out the form on the lower
half of the page.
3) Make sure that you enter "J2 Y-DNA group" in the space that says "Item" (This will ensure that your donation will get to the correct project), and enter the amount that you wish to donate. Fill in the rest of your details.
Once these steps are completed, FTDNA staff will add the donation to the project research fund. Please note this process may take a few days.
