I don't know what is confusing about my statement. I am not interested in
1500 year old DNA.... maybe 100 year old but not 1500 year old.
And I think this thread has been beaten into the ground. Time to change the
subject... or start hitting the delete key. The APG list needs to stick to
"professional genealogical" topics. In my opinion, this is not a topic that
will benefit any of us with our professional research at this time,
regardless of how interesting it may be to some of the group.
Maybe it can be brought back up when it is at a level of development that it
will benefit "genealogical" researchers (say in another 100 years?). Right
now I can't get some of my own ancestors out of Louisiana less than 200 years
ago.... I have no need to know who my one ancestor was 1500 years ago.. that
would be half a million ancestors ago?
