High Hopes . . . . . . . maybe dashed

Remember back the beginning of December when Clem, #183, tested and I remarked on what an opportunity it was for us because he was born in South Africa and now is from the Island of Mauritius?

Well, Clem's results have begun to come in and comparing 48 of his 67 markers to everyone in the Project he is, at best, a 'maybe' with the English Berrys Family.    The problem will be, no matter how close Clem may seem to them at 3, that Christopher, #52, and John, #67, both from the Genographic Project, have each only tested 12 markers -- so whether they even really constitute a 'Family' itself is in considerable doubt.

POSTED AT 4:55 PM: All 67 markers now in and posted.    No matches.

Do you mean EglishBerry, as in Eglish Castle?

Hi Bruce,

I do not. I mean 'English' Berrys. The family marked in light blue in the Project site.

What do you know about the Eglish Berrys? They would be the family we call the Augusta/Washington Co. Berrys (purple).

Hi just reading thro the blog .. seems I missed this one :(
If I understand correctly #52 and #67 only tested 12 markers.. would it perhaps be an option to test 67 markers for them both.. would that be more conclusive?

Yes, it would. Actually 37 markers would almost certainly tell us.
