Thanks for the heads up Al. I had not yet reviewed the charts. You are
right, 19 repeats is rare as hens teeth and found only in the Native
American populations noted above, Mongolians and Yakuts, one East
Asian group, and a few Arab populations. It is by far most common among the
Sioux (11% versus half that at most with any other population and more
commonly 1%). Humm. Interesting, particularly since no Six Nations were
tested. I will need to check on what is known about the Siouan compared to
the Iroquoian peoples in terms of possible genetic connections.
