Dear David,

I sent you the Ewings complete haplotype tree directly (both a circular and
a linear trees). It is somewhat complicated indeed, and I have described all
the principal branches earlier here. I hope that it will help you to sort
things out.

Indeed, some minor branches allow a multiple choice. Mutations are
mutations, and they follow dumb statistics. Some haplotypes venture into a
neighboring branch, or sit on a borderline. To sort them out you need actual
family archives.

Best luck to you.

Anatole Klyosov
