Selma: Alt..re: the DNA Thread, still don't understand what "thoughts" are being asked for
Seventies: I read over that as well, I wasn't quite sure what advice she was soliciting.
alt: me neither Selma ....
alt: her questions seem more about the 'genetics' and recombination (?) among Blacks and I have no idea on how to help her.
vkn: and you know i have no clues
Selma: and for sure I don't...
alt: I have no parents, aunts, uncles or older generations to have tested for the comparisons she is asking about.
