With unusual haplogroups such as K/K2, beware of incorrect Ysearch entries
that may reflect early predictions based on scant data, or even an mtDNA
haplogroup entered by mistake. So on the one hand, DP2SV is probably E3b
despite his claim to be a K, and 62W5N is probably R1b despite a similar
claim. On the other hand...
Get a load of 5SNYZ ! He claims to be a K, and maybe he is, but his nearest
neighbor at 37 markers is F3RYC, an I1b2a (old I1c) at a GD of 24. More
I1b2a men are 26 and 27 steps away. Athey's predictor can't make heads or
tails of him: With a setting of Equal Priors, the predictor returns 99.0%
Q, but with a fitness of only 23.
Interestingly, he has one exact match in Ysearch, in Singapore; so maybe he
really is KxK2. Now if only he would upgrade to 67 markers.
