Hi Kirsten and Elizabeth,
I did have a look at this back in January. I don't know that it proved too much.
What you are proposing to do sounds reasonable to me, and I think that Dennis Wright may have attemped something similar recently. I
think you could go to Ken Nordtvedt's site and use his Generations 5 program. I wouldn't use modal haplotypes, because then you
wouldn't be using the current diversity of the clusters to figure the age. Surely someone who knows more about this than I do could
I've received no response to my note below, which I gather means no one
thinks my idea is a good one. Can someone perhaps explain the folly of my
approach and suggest some other way to investigate the concept?
Has anyone compared any of the recognized Irish clades - NWI, South Irish,
Type III, to see how long ago they would have had a common ancestor? ? I
know these three are not the only ones, but they may be the largest.
