Dear Ethel,

All of my grandparents and my father were born in pre-Trianon
Hungary. My mother was born in NYC a few years after her parents
arrived. I am Haplogroup K and have the same mutations that are
shared by many other Ashkenazi Jews. Some lived in Hungary, others
in the Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, and other places where Ashkenazi
Jews settled. I'm not inclined to share my medical history with the
world but find genetic research of interest because it may help us
to trace migration patterns.
