Subject: [DNA] Variety in haplogrops
Date: Fri, 22 Nov 2002 08:45:03 -0800
My Shelton line has 25 tested that sort out into 11 groups with no match closer than a
10/12. Many of them are living in the same areas, same time -pre to early 1800's, but no
connecting paper trail, only confusion. One group of 7 is elite in that they share a rare
allele number, with 2 of these 7 having an 11/12 match.
