Hi Adam,

How will this differ from the K36 reports available from a number of different sources? I obtained a K36 from a European genetics person last year (at a very reasonable rate), both for the make up of my deep ancestry overall, and for an additional fee. the breakdown on a chromsome by chromsome basis. The person I engaged made use of a variety of reference populations. Some were Jewish and some were not, although some could have been comparators for pre Jewish times, and others applied to both Jews and non Jews, or to populations that were once Jewish but then converted.

Is what you are oferingĀ  a K36 report or something different?

In my case, I was particulalry struck by the degree of Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and Greek populations but also Caucusus, Babylonian and North African populations. As my mtdna haplogroup is HV1b2 and my brother's Ydna is G2b, the Caucusus and Babylonian were not a surprise. I also have a close cousin who has the classic Levite DNA signature (R1a1a) and another who has a rare subclade of a common J2b haplogroup, that could be equally Ashkenazi or Sephardi. As I have rabbinical connections on one side of the family (that will not test for their DNA) would your test reveal any Cohanic inflluences?

Would your analysis be able to spot all these significances or differences?
