Margaret,

I should add, even if it weren't for the 16223T issue, your HVR 2
mutations tell an extremely clear story to anyone who can read the
literature.

There is no doubt at all that these in HVR2 are haplogroup W mutations,
and nothing else. Hopefully at some point this will be noticed by
someone. If nothing else, you can inform them of what the scientific
literature says on this, and they will most likely be willing to assign
you to W, as they have for other people. After all, you are the one
paying them for this service, and they want you to be satisfied.

If you are lucky, though, they may be doing further RFLP testing on your
mtDNA Coding Region, which should, if done correctly, resolve the issue.
