Prof. Christine Keyser-Tracqui did the research for the extended haplotype
YSTR D/base for Strasbourg;
also the extended haplotype YSTR D/Base for Mongolia ; and presented
scientific paper No.015 at the
YSTR Workshop III in Porto, November 2002, A Comparison of Y-chrom. and
autosomal STR data
in past and present-day Mongolian populations.

The summary of the paper mentions biallelic patterns for DYS19 being present
in contemporary samples,
but not in the Mongolian ancient ones of about III B.C. to III A.D.

Best wishes, Alan.
