Ref: my Oxford ancestry results.
This is a belated thank you for your help converting DYS 389a and DYS 389b.
I managed to get some matches on www.ysearch.org/ . But none on http://smgf.org . The Oxford ancestry people did not have a DYS 425 box, yet I have DYS 425 value 12 on the result they sent me. I suppose there is a reason for this.
I am following with great interest the discussions on the movements and origins of early man, I have had more than a passing interest in this subject for many years, and I am sure that this science of Genetics will resolve things eventually. However perhaps too much emphasis is being placed on matching the evidence of DNA with written ancient history.
Thanks again Ann
Best Wishes John Ellis.
