My only comment here is that I think whatever the list name or names,
the word DNA should be the first word in the title.

The library if full of traditional genealogy books too. Thus the new
list, if one is created, should have the term DNA in it too, I believe.
So it could be DEEP-ANCESTRY-DNA if most don't like the ANTHROPOLOGY-DNA

list proposal I made. But I see nothing wrong with ANTHROPOLOGY-DNA
