      If you are interested in genetic
      genealogy and genetic
      anthropology, go here:

      http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/index

      and search for "genealogy-dna."

      You will call up the archives for Genealogy-DNA, a very nice mailing
      list that focuses on hardcore use of genetic testing in genealogy.
      There are a lot of posts from people who have actually paid for tests
      and are putting the results on the Web. So, if you bought a Family
      Tree DNA, Oxford Ancestry or Ancestry test and aren't sure what to do
      with the results, this group is a good place to start.

      Many of the posts come from people researching ethnically Christian
      ancestry, but some come from people researching a group of
      Appalachians known as the "Melungeon." It's possible that the
      Melungeons are descended from African slaves, but some people say
      their ancestors could also include Portuguese, Arab and Jewish
      sailors. I guess it's possible that some Jews could turn out to have
      distant Melungeon cousins.

      In another case, a Christian man with the surname WALKER recently
      posted a note stating that his brother had what appeared to be a
      distinctively Jewish Y chromosome pattern. His post might be of
      special interest to Jewish men with surnames such as WALKER, WALLACE,
      WALLACH, etc. (Or, of course, it could be that Mr. Walker will turn
      out to be related to Mr. Levi, Mr. Schwartz, or whatever the milkman's
      surname happened to be.)
