I emailed the study contact about Bowes lineage in this area and got this response:
Thanks for your message and your interest in our study. We will see if we acquire
any Bowes males in our initial recruitment phase, and if not we will include the name in
our second-phase recruitment targeting specific surnames."
Again, not going to help our projects specifically I don't think, but nice to get
represented if it works. The study results should include some marker values, although
not as many as one gets through FTDNA, and some amount of haplogroup info for any
male Bowes tested.
