Ron, You might make a request to Rootsweb to start a new list for
Genealogy DNA Eye Diseases and pick up all inheritable eye diseases to
expand the possible subscribers. Don't know if Rootsweb will OK it,
but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I suppose I ignored the possibility because that isn't the way it happened in my particular case. Anyway that does make it a more cumbersome tool for genealogy. However in my case I know the gene was passed from my great-grandmother, and I know nothing of her father, and only the first name of her mother. I've exhausted ordinary research methods.
