In Response To: Re: CORRECTION WEB SITE "UNDERSTANDING MUTATIONS ()
When I get home I'll check. I'm pretty sure I saved the links. It's interesting how the L3f1 marker will appear all over. I have seen reference in Guinea-Bissau, Angola, Nigeria, Congo as well as Sudan, Ethiopia, Yemen, etc. All these locations make me somewhat skeptical of results that will say we have found a match in Angola for example. It may be recent or distant migration or even just one traveler that has moved away from the tribe group. Anyway...the different studies I have found will find 1 L3f1 but it is usually relatively low against the other types in a region. The area it still seems to be more prevalent is NE Africa and Yemen. I'm still curious what transpired for some to migrate and mingle while most others stayed. Facinating.
My parents arrive tomorrow. So, I will have a captive audience for all my questoins. And yes, time to use my "use this swab to clean your cheek" approach in case my Mom shows no interest in the ancestrybydna test.
