In your searches for continental sources of 13 24 14 10 etc don't ignore the
highland mercenaries, the family business. There were highland mercenaries
carrying those values in the armies of France( including one of Napoleon's
field marshalls), Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Poland and Russia.

Your chart is very good. Thanks for sharing it. I was surprised to find 13
24 14 10 13 13 30 did not
make your top six frequency list. Then I noticed that some of this
haplotype's "hot spots" are not on your
chart. Had the Rhineland and Alsace area cities been added, I believe you
would see a slight rise in
this haplotype compared to its small size everywhere else in continental
Europe. This slight increase
leads me to believe the haplotype was once part of the Frankish
confederation, and before that part of
the spring that brought forth the La Tene culture. Very good work on your
