We have enough participants at this point to start assigning subgroups. We've renamed the "Gregory" group to "England 1" since it seems certain that all these lines go back to England. Within the England 1 group, we have defined two major subgroups, Gregory and Jeremiah. Membership in these groups is based on both DNA results and lineage.

Note: None of these divisions and assignments should be considered permanent. They will no doubt be refined and modified as more data are collected.
