Ken ...

I'm looking forward to that I1a4 result. I believe Peter is still in Torino
on a special project for Cavalli-Sforza - originally he planned to be there
till at least mid-July.

Is there any information on P95 for I1d, I2b, I2c, I3 ?? I've copied a snip
below from a question I posted recently about this. P95 appears in I1d,
I2b, & I3 subgroups and always with a "?" appended.

Mike ...
. . .

Meanwhile, the I Y-tree still looks muddled: we've seen very few or none of
I1a2, I1a3, I1a4, and P95? appears in the I1d, I2b & I3 branches, and appears
nowhere without the "?" suffix.

I agree, hopefully David Faux will help clarify this with some downstream
testing in "I".

When I soon get the I1a4 extended 43 marker haplotype back, I will know if
it has any markers which make it distinctive from my general database of
about 1000 I1a haplotypes. This will influence whether it should be tested
for P40. I also have messages out to Underhill (who originally discovered
M227 for I1a4), Rootsi et al who studied M227+ but without testing P40, and
Greenspan whose company puts M227+ as parallel to P40+, I1a1. If none of
them can confirm that a M227+ haplotype has ever been tested as P40-, then
I'll hopefully retrieve some of the M227+ material from DNA Heritage and
have you test for P40.

Good news on the M307. I know both Mike and I will want the test; and if we
were to really be negative for M307 then there would be many, I am sure.
