After consideration of the statistical confidence intervals that go with the
estimates, the timing of the various populations is inconclusive.
All those ages must be considered as close to being statistically

>A collection was made of 153 haplotypes of R:U106 with 67 Markers and STR

> Haplotypes with repeated surnames were removed from the list.
> The remaining 140 haplotypes were distributed as follows:-
> England 53
> Germany 24
> Ireland 14
> Scotland 12
> Wales 9
> Switzerland 7
> France 6
> Austria 4
> Belgium 3
> Denmark 3
> Italy 2
> Finland 1
> Portugal 1
