Subject: Re: [DNA] TMRCA of R1b1b2s to King Tut?

If by "you know who" you mean me (DKF) then there is a deficit in following
the stream of a post. Someone else found that the closest match was a
U-152, and I merely commented - in jest because it is folly to predict most
R1b1b2 haplogroups from a haplotype - some exceptions. I freely admit that
it would be helpful to my research to know that U152 has been observed in
northeastern Africa at the time of the Pharoahs - this would be a
potentially very important finding that could change the current views on
the origin and migration of this and other related haplogroups. In terms of
"wishful thinking" I only wish for the truth to surface quickly. Period.
