New mtDNA results

Larry, #9, received his mtDNA HVR1 and HVR2 results yesterday.    He is haplogroup K with CRS differences in HVR1 at 093C, 224C, 249C, 311C and 519C and in HVR2 at 73G, 195C, 263G, 309.1C, 315.1C, 497T, 524.1C and 524.2A.   

Although I suspect that the only sure meaningful match is a FGS* match, Larry has enough differences and a somewhat unique haplogroup so that his HVR1&2 match should be more hopeful than many others.

      *FGS - Full Genome Sequence (also called Whole Genome Sequence or EGS).    It sequences the entire mtDNA genome   --   all 16569 base pairs.
