Me too!! :)

I would like to see a 67+ marker modal haplotype of that family and the result of V-series SNP testing. (Maybe the researchers who have these samples in their fridge are reading this mailing list? :) )

B. Bonné-Tamir, M. Korostishevsky, A. J. Redd, Y. Pel-Or, M. E. Kaplan, M. F. Hammer (2003) Maternal and Paternal Lineages of the Samaritan Isolate: Mutation Rates and Time to Most Recent Common Male Ancestor

http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/links/doi/10.1046/j.1469-1809.2003.00024.x/abs/

there are 12 markers for this (lineage C), and the other 3 Samaritan families, listed.

Here they are:

I am very suspect of the DYS439 results: 16, 15, 14, and 17!!
They are very far from the "normal" range.

Maybe there was a systematic error in the measurement? Any opinions?

.... Per Shen (2004) the Samaritan Cohen are E3b1(M78). I would love to see STR markers.
