Thank you for sharing this info with us. To me it is fascinating.
Another avenue of exploration into our heritage. I am R1b1c, not all
that far from the WAMH, and H2a2, about as close to CRS as you can get.
You might call my heritage Generic Western European.
However, I am bloodtype A negative, which I'm told is not all that
common. My Dad was a Universal Donor, O negative. He mentioned more
than once that they would never take his blood during blood drives back
in the war years. They preferred to keep him as a walking blood bank.
He was rather proud of that I think. I don't know what Mom's blood
type was. She died when I was a child and the subject just never came
up. I would guess she was Rh- and either A or O.
Given that I'm A neg and Dad is O neg, does that suggest anything to you
that might narrow down my rather generic ancestry? I would appreciate
any insights you might have.
