Hunter Provyn is creating ancient migration maps

I am a software engineer with a passion for history. I am a volunteer co-administrator advancing research into the origins and migrations of Y haplogroups J-M241 and J-M172.

My motivation in launching PhyloGeographer is to help inform migration theories of clades in the absence of (or conjuction with) ancient DNA.

I believe amateur genetic genealogists are in a position to advance phylogeographical research of clades formed in the last few thousand years.

It is my hope that other haplogroup project administrators and members find the visualization system useful and contribute toward its enhancement by publishing their data to make their projects accessible to the community.

Goals
14 of 25 patrons
When I reach 25 patrons, I will begin incorporating YFull's TMRCA dates into the algorithm to make it more accurate and informative.
