You are very close to WC8K8, whose surname is a variant of yours. But WC8K8
is very, very interesting.
WC8K8 has DYS492=13, which is a strong indicator of membership in R1b1c9.
(FTDNA doesn't test for this, but EthnoAncestry does.) And his nearest
neighbor at 67 markers, 4XYPR who is a genetic distance of 7 away, also has
DYS492=13, as expected. But 2B6XG and EK6TG are only a GD of 9 away, and
have DYS492=12. Similarly, 7ET93 and MN8X3 are a GD of 10 away at 67
markers, and also have DYS492=12. Ordinarily, that would imply that these 4
men are not members of R1b1c9.
In short, either:
A) The crosstalk ('accidental convergence') between S21+ (R1b1c9) and S21-
(R1b1c*) is truly frightening, or
B) DYS492 is failing to predict the status of S21 correctly in some of these
If your own results come out as anomalous as those of WC8K8, I suggest you
consider getting an S21 test from EthnoAncestry.
