David F. and all,
All 15 of our Group A "Shenandoah" Hursts are 437=14 (all also 390=23 and
391=10), with the origin almost certainly England. All are predicted R1b;
All four of our Group E, also from Virginia, are also 437=14 (two are
390=23, two are 390=24; all are 391=11). They are predicted R1b, closer to
the WAMH according to Whit's calculator than Group A.
We only have three other American Hursts, all 437=15. (23/10, 24/10, and
24/11), all predicted R1b.
I find it interesting that our two Virginia groups, who had parallel origins
and migration patterns, share the 437=14 which is only 11% in non-Iberian
R1bs. Of course, our Group A 393=14 is the primary distinguishing marker.
