Count me in. I'm 10% Na, 15% Asiatic, 75% Indo-European. The Asiatic was a
surprise as you know. Mother's DNA is submitted already. Have my mtDNA
already done. Would suggest you track those results too. Fathers and
grandfathers are the stamp projects. Have significant genealogy done (20
years + original work). I don't do internet genealogy, except to find leads
which I follow up on with original work.

David, are you the compiler?

Since all my 30 years of genealogy
into all the PA German surnames which are in all my family tree branches
are of European ancestry, my Y chromosome haplogroup is R1b (European),
and my mtDNA group is H (European), I was puzzled and questioning of
this surprising significant 21% "East Asian" content in my DNAPrint
results. And so the thread started.

I do like the DNAPrint product
concept, and I have already enlisted two more in my Kerchner project to
take the test to see how they turn out. Both are of "European" stock.
Similar to how the "protocol and nomenclature" and "standardization"
problems in the early stages of the Y chromosome test have been resolved
via customer feedback, these issues will be resolved over time too. Just
my humble opinions.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Charles: Perhaps we should start our rather informal, and
admittedly unscientific study as a pilot test of our hypothesis. We have
you as a starting point, the other two in your project, and myself (although
only 1% East Asian). A beginning. Would it be worthwhile to call on
everyone on this List and elsewhere who can provide a reasonable paper trail
proving their ancestry, and who have taken the DNAPrint test plus the Y and
or mtDNA testing to communicate with one of us or the list so that we can
tabulate the results? Even if we only had 20 people in this proposed pilot
project, I think it would be informative.

Thoughts anyone? David.
