Subject: Re: [DNA] Former Yugoslavia and genetic databanks
Date: Thu, 20 Sep 2007 13:14:58 -0700
To help in the search, as I am J2a1 Pre-J2a1k too, I am hoping that the
Pre-J2a1k folks enter all their tested markers (FTDNA and otherwise)
into Ysearch. This will help others searching for Y-DNA clues!
>My family's 67-marker test reveals no close connections (best match is 10). The haplogroup appears to be J2a1 (pre-J2a1k), which, according to current thinking, may have roots in the Fertile Crescent. Have DYS445 = 10?and am also awaiting FTDNA deep DNP results (due 9/24/07).
>I have a vested interest in knowing more about haplogroups from the "Former Yugoslavia", maybe more so the area currently known as Serbia. Is anyone familiar with the DNA databanks being assembled in the Balkans in order to identify genocide victims? Any chance any of them are accessible to people like us or can be cross indexed in any way against the types of results being put forth by the likes of FTDNA?
>As an aside, this is the great side benefit to doing any kind of genealogy. I didn't used to have much interest in history but find my interest spikes significantly when there's a possible?connection to a particular area or when more knowledge is necessary?persue lines of research. Even if the connection isn't made, I'm left with a new perspective on the world.? :)
