FROM THE AUDIO RECORDING CONTAINING DR. KEVIN JONES’ DNA SEMINAR AT THE 4TH
UNION IN KINGSPORT, TN. ON 21 JUNE 2002
+4 sequences match Siddhi, which is predominant in northern India. These are
of unquestionable Siddhi ancestry.
+2 sequences match Turkey.
+1 match for Syria.
*SPECIFIC OF THE 20 MALE Y-DNA:
*They already show 7 different genetic types.
*Compared to 4,500 in the gene data bank, a couple of the males matched only
one out of the 4,500 types, and that was Anatolian Turkey. Another matched
one from an Arab population.
*Some Melungeon Y-DNA types matched NONE of the 4,500 in the gene data bank.
That is both interesting and potentially significant.
Ask not WHO said it
Ask WHY they said it
