Haplogroup Summary:

There has been a fair increasing in SNP testing in the Meek project, including next generation SNP testing. This has allow the project to refine the haplogroup designation of several group. This particularly true of Groups A, B & F.

2016 Summary:

The Meek/Meeks DNA Project is 12 years old. Total number of members 254

After two years of increased growth 2016 tuned out to be biggest year since 2010 with 29 new member. The five year annual average new membership is 21.2. Still disappointing, although improved, is the number of new Y-DNA orders devoted to the Meek(s) surname. Autosomal testing (Family Finder) continues to be popular. Caution is advised. The autosomal test is much more complicated than testing companies let on.
