Subject: Re: [DNA] How some Y chromosomes paired up with certain mtDNAs in ancient times

In a message dated 11/2/03 8:59:34 AM Pacific Standard Time,
. What he's getting at is
that certain female mtDNA types seem to pair up with certain Y chromosome
types as the cline of migrations are studied genetically. Some O types of
India and Central Asia seem to pair up with M and N types of NW India and
move on to Eastern Europe. Berbers with CRS H mtDNA seem to pair up J1a
types in N. Africa/Levant. And U is found in Iran at 22% along with 10
percent of R1a1.

Right in the middle of your post about the Y chromosome pairing up with
certain mtDNAs you use the pronoun "He." As a writing teacher you surely know that
a personal pronoun used in that situation requires an earlier reference to a
person. Who is 'he?'
