Speaking of upstream Haplogroups, was the genuine P* (which is neither Q nor
ever observed ?
The designation P* is often used in articles, but the list of tested SNPs
usually doesn't allow to exclude both R2 and Q. These articles are then
mistakenly understood by some readers as claiming to find genuine P* (which
they don't) , and then on-line texts claim existence of P*.
Distribution of both R* and R1* may point to Pakistan, rather than Europe,
as the point of origin
of R1. Was R1* ever reported in Europe ?
