I think my question was generally misunderstood from the responses I've
seen. (Maybe I had another typo, that's waht I get for posting messages so
late at night). I was asking about variety in haplogroups, not haplotypes.
We actually produced far more than five separate haplotypes in the 17
samples and that was no surprise. What surprised me was the diversity in
haplogroups. We have had participants who were from HG1, HG2, HG3, HG4/21,
and HG35. That's what I was asking about. Has anyone else encountered that
wide a variety in haplogroups?

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.
