Seems to me such a change could be the result either of a RecLOH event or a
single-step mutation in one copy of DYS464 (though I wouldn't call the
latter a UEP). But if that is the only observed difference between the two
haplotypes, and if the surnames are known to be related, I would take the
overall similarity as evidence of a recent common ancestor.
