I was wondering if there has ever been any discussion about this group getting DNA tested or forming its own group with in Family Tree DNA. 
I would think as the way genealogy is moving to have DNA testing enhance the paper research that this could be something that could be discussed. What would be really great is to have people who moved from certain villages in Russia to be grouped together.
The Family Finder test that is so helpful in finding cousins it may be a great way to help researchers.
I was wondering if this is something that has been thought about.
Also a lot of buzz about the new Genographic test through the National Geographic society, which is going to be a great test just not the same as the Family Finder test.

Looking forward to hearing thoughts on this.

PS I am considering starting a group from Rastadt, Russia but would need people that are interested in participating and wiling to take the test.
The Family Finder Test is for either males or females, the yDNA test is for males only (which traces the paternal line) The mtDNA test both males and females can take and it traces the maternal line.
The Family Finder test is the most beneficial (I have found) for genealogists.
