Jun 4: A lot of my time recently has been taken up by the programming of the Haplogroup & Haplo-I Subclade Pedictor, a free utility for determining haplogroup or subclade status from Y-STR haplotype data. Another project has been the collaboration with Ken Nordtvedt on the Estimation of Clade TMRCAs and running confirmations of the analytics using computer models. The paper resulting from those efforts can be read on this site or downloaded in PDF format from Ken Nordtvedt's site.

Jan 5: Added some views of the inside of Glenade House to the Sligo-Leitrim World of Kate Cullen page, courtesy of Schiller & Schiller, Co Sligo, Ireland. Added census information on the page for the family of William & Elizabeth (Houghton) Cullen of Boston, Lincolnshire, with thanks to Wendy Parkinson.

Dec 28: Further information on the Cullens of Manorhamilton has been forwarded by David Evans of Australia. David has taken his information straight from the source and was able to extract partial family trees from Gertrude Thrift's abstracts. Text versions of these trees are now available on this page. Zipped GED files are also available for download on the Cullens of Manorhamilton page and the Thrift's Abstracts page. Also added a new search engine to the Site Map compliments of Ixquick Metasearch.

Sep 8: I notice from the last FTP session that the Cullen Genealogy Homepage website has just exceeded 5 megabytes of webpages, images, and data! Actual html file count is just under 200 pages. In another year, the Summer of 2008, we'll reach the Ten-Year Anniversary of the website - I never thought my family pages would become so large or last so long. I'd better start making out a list now - I have a lot of people to thank!

Sep 8: Finished an update on the Cullens of Upton DNA page. Read how 3,000 year old remains in Lichtenstein Cave, Germany are identified as I1b2*-B . . . old relatives of ours! Posted a page in progress in the Mathematics section on the Sums of Powers of the Natural Numbers.

Sep 1: Beginning site updates again after a rough start. I've begun with new DNA results for the Cullens of Upton, Nottinghamshire, resulting in a rare marker combination that pinpoints Cullens descended from the family in Upton, Nottinghamshire. Beginnings of a page of Variance Distribution in STR haplotypes. I have several page updates in the works, GEDCOM material ( Hi David! ), family histories ( Hi Brendan! ), and much more.

Mar 10: I've finished upgrading to a new computer system. All files and programs have been ( finally ) transferred to the new system. For those interested, the old system was a P166MHz MMX laptop running Win98 SE with 64MB RAM. The new system is a P4 1.6GHz desktop running WinXP with 512MB RAM. Updates will resume shortly.

Dec 6: Posted a new page of Related English Cullen Families. Thank You to Lorraine Cullin who has forwarded information on a branch of Cullens in Dry Doddington, Lincolnshire. These families are related to those in Great Gonerby and Brant Broughton in Lincs., and descended from the Cullens of Upton, Notts.

Nov 25: Posted the beginnings of a new set of data in the Records Archive. These new pages will take some time to collate and post but I will post them in progress - see the page Cullen Families of Nottinghamshire. Also made another update to the Daily Log.

Nov 22: Posted some new photos on the page for the village of Upton, Nottinghamshire. Bill Coldham, of Oxfordshire UK, has also added captions and stories for the photos. His efforts have helped to bring our Upton page to life. This is a blessing for visitors who stop by to learn more about the little village in the English Midlands that was home to the Cullen family for many centuries.

Sep 4: I have had practically no time available in the last month or two for site work so there have been no updates at present. I know also there's a ton of email waiting to be answered and I apoligize for the long delay but it will be taken care of in the next week or so if all goes well.

Jul 4: Added a page to the DNA section of the site for the explanation of ASD calculations as applied to the age estimation of haplotype populations per Ken Nordtvedt's conventions.

Jun 22: Added a page for the Cullen DNA Results so far at the Cullen Family DNA Project. The big surprise is that two of our Cullens are the first to be included into a new R1b subclade that I uncovered while trying to match their results. The new variety, the fourth discovered to be rooted in Ireland, is called R1b-Ir/Cont.

Jun 11: Added a new page off the Cullen DNA Page. The Search Results Page is a temporary home for DNA match search results.
