      Dear DNA sisters and brothers,

      Thanks for all the information you've been sending me. There remain a
      few of you from whom I have not heard with basic information on your
      roots, your hometowns and your occupations. Some of you, I'm sure,
      can take us a little farther back to our shared ancestor. For now,
      we're pretty much frozen at the years 1750-1760. No one has reported
      finding ancestors farther back than that.

      We've had some back and forths on Haplotype Q. Only one of us, a
      Philadelphia illustrator named Richard Anderson, has had the Deep
      Clade Test, the one that tests for haplotypes. He's a certified
      Haplotype Q now, and thus we all are.

      Of the 64 perfect or near-perfect matches on our list, we have
      hometowns for 44, occupations for 47 and most recent countries of
      origin for 45.

      Fifteen of you can be addressed as "doctor." Here are your
      occupations. Corrections and additions welcome:
