Ashkenazi Jewish - yDNA Haplogroup Q1bHi - I hope I'm doing this correctly. I subscribed a while ago, after having my dad tested as part of my research of our family tree, and he turned out to be haplogroup Q. But I haven't been able to participate, or even devote much attention, much to my chagrin. Anyway, for whatever reason, I clicked on tonight, and see that there is much progress in the typing - and I wonder if you still need people to volunteer samples for this newer typing? My dad would be happy to do this, and since he will be 87 in June, and is the only male left in the family, and the only Q, I guess it would be a good idea.Oh - and by the way, his family (Romanian, but in the New World, anecdotally, since late 1500's or early 1600's) always said they were neither Ashkenazi nor Sephardic, but "something else...Thanks for any guidance -Lois Harford (nee Greenberg)----- Original Message -----Sent: Wednesday, April 13, 2011 2:39 AMSubject: [Ashkenazi-Q] Digest Number 281

I just got this by googling SNP L245. I guess I haven't given this group my new email address of goldfoot1@frontier. com
I wanted to tell you that I just ordered the L 245 and the L272 SNP test for my brother, David Goldfoot after reading Rebekah's email about new SNPs for another group. I check the tree and found that these were recommended for our particular haplogroup. Your report below makes it much easier to understand. I hope the results will tell some interesting things.
