Genetic tracing #general

Off topic ?
I have bend pinky fingers ( not very uncommon ) I am informed that in a
documentary called Cave of Forgotten Dreams it is mentioned that the
handprints of one artists of the cave drawings ,in the Chauvet Caves in
France, has a bent pinky and that's how they identify him. So if it is
genetic then clearly it has been passed on a long time, almost 30,000
years. So far I can go back to 1800 so I have a fair way to go .
MODERATOR NOTE: Perhaps a bit off to the side, but short and interesting.
Readers are reminded that JewishGen's DNA list was established for discussions
about the application of DNA testing, or genetics in general, to genealogy.
Further discussion of the shape of pinky fingers might be more appropriate on
that list. See <http://www.jewishgen.org/DNA/>.
