RE: <<I think it's not really the case that the Cohanim who have the CMH are
split into two large groups, some in J1 and others in J2. Rather, a
substantial proportion of those considered Cohanim by Jewish tradition,
don't have the CMH at all. Those who do have the CMH are, I believe,
largely J1 rather than J2.>>
Whit's excellent haplogroup predictor does not yet include J1 (presumably
for lack of data available to Whit).
Inputting the CMH values gives
J2 83% therefore "a hit"
I1a 31% (note not "a hit")
We may presume that those who have lodged their results at Ybase etc may
have used the predictor and input J2 when in fact J1 may be more
