Subject: [DNA] Matching a Person of a Different Surname 24/25
Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2003 20:00:43 -0600


I just learned that my husband matches a DNA participant in another surname group 24/25. The difference is at 464a. The other participant has a 15, while my husband has a 14. The surnames DO NOT match. They are not even close. The area and time frame look very promising: Pennsylvania in the early 1700's. What am I to make of this? The markers have proven to be somewhat rare. So should I attach a lot of importance to this? Thanks!
