Another Update on the Proctor DNA Project

We had quite a week over at the Proctor DNA Project, with lots of inquiries. It looks like things are finally starting to heat up for us!
As a result, we had a new member sign up yesterday. He ordered the "Comprehensive Genome" product from FTDNA. This includes the 67-marker Y-DNA test, the Full Mitochondrial Sequence (FMS) and the new autosomal Family Finder test. (Wow!)
It appears that he and I are 8th cousins on our Proctor line. We both trace back to John Graye Proctor through his grandson Joshua. Since my Proctor first cousin once-removed will also be swabbing this week, their Y-DNA results should come in about the same time and, hopefully, match. He and I might even find an autosomal match on Family Finder! This should be VERY interesting...
