Family Tree


For John, BLUFI wonder if Ancestor dot Com is going to go DNA on us?  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Reporting for Live Science, Staff Writer Tia Ghose asks "Are You Part Iceman? Famous Ötzi Has 19 Living Relatives"

The lede plus one:

Ötzi the Iceman, a stunningly preserved mummy found in the Italian Alps in 1991, has living relatives in the region, new genetic analysis shows.

The study, published in the journal Forensic Science International:  Genetics, found that the 5,300-year-old mummy has at least 19 [living] male relatives on his paternal side.

And, being very modern, Mr Ötzi the Iceman had Lyme Disease, but that is not what killed him.  Neither did old age.  It was bow and arrow violence.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
