Hi Anatole,
If a group of haplotypes matches exactly on a set of 12 markers but
divide into different haplogroups then the temporal separation between
between them is surely not as close as one would at first estimate with
the Y-STRs alone... this is what I meant about accuracy ... testing a
larger Y-STR set will allow one to see more correctly the Cohanim
genetic tree.
