I misread Ken's spreadsheet results for the 67 marker J1 Cohen case!
There are two results given. The first is G*(A), and the second is an
estimate of G(A) which is the MRCA age! Previously I incorrectly used
Here are the correct results:
(1) MRCA age of J1 Cohen's, 29 haplotypes of 67 markers, 30
years/generation: 2100 years ago
(2) MRCA age of J1 Cohen's, 66 haplotypes of 37 markers, 30
years/generation: 2300 years ago.
The MRCA ages are virtually the same! This gives one confidence that we
are near the correct age for the J1 Cohen's (the one and only group of
Cohen's in J1 as far as I know). Still it would be valuable to have
other J1 Cohen's test 67 markers and upload their results to the Cohen
DNA Project and/or the Y-DNA J Project.
