In your search for your own personal paternity and that issue please be
a bit more careful as to what aspersions you cast about with your
implications in some of your comments about others.

My paper, historical, genealogical trail is solid after over 25 years of
traditional genealogical research prior to doing any DNA testing. I
began DNA testing to help other potential 5th cousins tie into my line,
not to find out who my own father was. I came into this as a long-time,
experienced genealogist, not a geneticist.

My family has lived in this same small area for over 8 generations, all
born and died within 40 miles of each other. AND as to my paper trail
for my male line, it has been validated by Y chromosome analysis
comparing my Y chromosome with that of my 2nd cousin and several 5th
cousins. Read all about my validation process in this page. So I have no doubt as to my
paternity and the accuracy as direct male Y chromosome line. I have also
had mtDNA testing done to learn what information can be learned from
that. All the DNA testing I have done confirms my traditional paper
research, European ancestry ... except for the DNAPrint test which
resulted in the surprising 21% Asian content. But I am as sure as I am
of anything that I do not have a recent genealogical Asian ancestor,
despite your latest implications to the opposite. None of my
grandparents or great-grandparents were Asian. They were PA Deutsch. My Asian content is from ancient
sources, not recent sources, and is probably there in a significant
percentage of PA Deutsch lines, but not all. And my project is pursuing

Malcolm, please see my PA Deutsch Ethnic Group DNA project page again
and re-read the "Genesis" section:

If you wish to discuss this further, please reply to me privately as
this has all been discussed in great detail in this forum before, as
explained in great detail in the genesis section of my PA Deutsch Ethnic
Group DNA Project, link above.
