< One of the other delegates was working on
the DNA of Otzi and invited her to his lab to see what was happening.
Whilst there, he asked her for a sample of her DNA as he was attempting to
build a database of results. She obliged and thought no more of it. Some
months later she had a phone call from the scientist saying that they had
discovered that she was the nearest living relative of Otzi on their
database. >

Just from memory, and I hope I'm not misquoting, but I think that story is in Bryan Sykes's book, The Seven Daughters of Eve.
Oetzi was a K - as am I, so I have an interest in this VERY distant cousin!
