Thank you very much, Bonnie Schrack, for your contribution, part of which I
quote below. Thanks to you and the many contributors and Ann
Turner, my DNA education has progressed dramatically.
One small correction, Bonnie, my mtDNA mutations are at 294 and 304 only,
not 126, 294, 296, and 304. Those others were discussed in the message
from Oxford Ancestors, but I have only the two; namely, 294 and 304.
Ann Turner has already posted that 519 is not tested by OA. My next
project will be to submit my cheek cells to FTDNA, and then perhaps to
other labs. We shall see what comes up and I will keep you posted.
I am sure there are other "Tara-Helenas" like me who are curious.
I went to the University of Chicago website of the American Journal of
Human Genetics and am reading the report you mentioned in your post. For
those interested, the URL is :
Very interesting, including the linguistic observations.
