One or Two?
We've talked about this before -- but now we have more data.
The main question is whether Preston and Carlos Bell are Faires Berrys or whether they, and David, #161, make up a separate 'family' themselves? I guess a subquestion is whether Preston and Carlos are Berrys, masquerading as Bells, or whether David is a Bell masquerading as a Berry?
Here are the haplotypes of all the folks we'll be comparing -
This genetic distance table shows what at first glance may seem to be two separate families, but at the same time the overlap between them.
Since most of these folks have tested to 37 markers, I've also done a cladogram which more graphically illustrates the question.
You all decide.
