Hi Ms. Bell

I am thrilled by your suggestion. I will look into it.

My guess is that it is more likely that some members of the our tribes took
Egyptian wives and husbands and those genetic contributions will show up in
our gene pool of today, because the in-mixture that stayed Jewish with long
ago Egyptian ancestors have now been Jewish for 3300 years.

If i get anything exciting on this I'll be back to the entire group.

It seems to me that, in theory, Moses could have actually been an Egyptian
prince of the blood. Even if he wasn't, it's easy to imagine that the
Israelite and Judean royal families occasionally brought Egyptian
princelings into their families.

If Family Tree DNA hasn't already thought of this, maybe you could ask
whoever is testing the pharoahs' DNA to at least look at the 11 SNPs that
Family Tree DNA uses for its test, along with the other SNPs they were
already planning to use, just to see if the pharoahs are our cousins.
