I have bought & downloaded Anatole's electronic book version. I think
there are good technical points Anatole is making but I have just
started reading the first article concerning the "Basic Rules of DNA
Genealogy (Y-Chromosome), Mutation Rates and their Calibration". I have
questions I'd like to ask him, but that will wait to a later time ...
Here are the recent J1 CMH-12 and older J1 CMH-12 that Anatole speaks
of, in FTDNA order:
The rCMH-12 is of course FTDNA's CMH-12. We know that this cluster
contains real Jewish Priests (Cohanim).
The oCMH-12 is another J1 cluster. I have about 16 exact 12 marker
haplotypes in this cluster (some of which are J1 and some J2a1b-alpha
(same as your J2a1b A cluster I think)). I don't know if this J1 cluster
has Jewish Priests. The possibility arises too that Jewish Priests at
one time in the past belonged to this cluster but are now vanished so it
is difficult to be definitive about the true sequence of events in the
past and about what we are claiming happened ...
