This new snp is given L812 name by Dr Krahn. I forgot to mention that
addition to testing it out for being private-like, high priority should go
to checking an M284+ person. M284+ and Roots by some STR genetic distance
arguments could be closest together of the various branches of M223+, and
they probably share a common ancestral branch line which excludes the rest
of M223+ and could hold the snp L812?
We now wait for L812 to show up in the catalog.

Subject: [DNA] New M223+ Roots snp
It seems a new M223+ Roots person’s WTY has a new SNP which comes from a
site covered in the previous M223+ Continental person’s WTY, but the latter
was not reported mutated there.
So either we have a very nice snp to divide Roots from Continental, or this
snp will turn out far downstream and private-like.
Ideal outcome will be if it splits Roots population robustly?
Position is 13359429. I forgot to check if Dr Krahn gave it an L number
