As a collector of S21+ haplotypes, I was happy to see another S21+ who is
also DYS492=13. This is shown at Ysearch for CRTJ5, Draghici.
I assume the value of DYS492=12 (shown for CRTJ5, Draghici, at Scott's
extended R1b haplotype) is a typo? It is reassuring that S21+ is still
maintaining a link to DYS492=13 in Eastern Europe as well.
