DNA Research #DNA K1a1b1a and The Jews in the Well, Norwich, England #dna

There have been several posts recently about joining the K1a1b1a
Facebook group [ https://www.facebook.com/groups/247655585261008 ] who
are urging further testing of the remains of Jews thrown into a well
in Norwich, England in the 12th century
[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13855238 ].

Initially, I assumed that I was not eligible for "membership" as I had
tested only HVR1. But apparently:

16234T in the first hypervariable region indicates K1a1b1a.

K1a1b1a seems to be fairly common among Ashkenazi Jews.
