Thanks, Max ...

My Sorenson 463 is 21, translating to a 19 in FTNDA's jargon, correct? So,
the question David & I had was: "should we enter the "Sorenson value -2" into
Ysearch? I have assumed the answer is yes.

Dear Mike,

Dr. Alan Redd, a member of Family Tree DNA Advisory Board, is the
discoverer of this marker. He shows that 24 is modal for that marker in
most populations, with a range of 18-25, but with 24 enjoying about 60% of
the results...therefore if your results are with R1b you probably have a 24
versus anything else for that marker.

E-mail me any time!
