Subject: RE: [DNA] Y-SNP Multiplex and Exotic Haplogroups
Date: Tue, 15 Nov 2005 00:04:38 -0500
Hi David, in looking at your message, it seems that you are saying that
Q*-M242 has been found in a European. If so, it this the first and if so,
has M242 been found in a Native American Q? I must get my Q tested for M242
but am hoping that I can get my dad to do the ethnoancestry test and see
what percentage N/A he is. He is 88 and if we were able to be accepted into
a tribe, his DNA should be better than mine for submittal.
I really appreciate all you are doing and the help you and your work has
been for me.
Best wishes, Jim Lawson

Subject: [DNA] Y-SNP Multiplex and Exotic Haplogroups
It is a great day when I get not only one but a series of results for
haplogroups that, in Europeans, would be considered exotic and very rare.
Some of these would have been difficult or impossible to predict on the
basis of a haplotype alone.
As time goes by and more people are tested, I suspect that more and more
haplogroups that have not shown up in academic studies of Europe will
continue to surface and that Charles' Anthrogenealogy SNP Database as well
as Ysearch will reflect this increasing diversity.
