Yes, you were indeed involved Ken :-)

I checked my e-mail via the search feature and found out where I came up
with the idea that P66 was from an Italian sample. A customer had e-mailed
Bennett Greenspan and here follows the reply:


Hi John



Lots will be happening in the next year on R1b and I'd personally suggest
that you NOT test our panel just for one marker. BTW P66+ has been found
only in Italy so far, so it could represent people who were not in the
Spanish refugee, but south of the Alps instead.



Best Regards
