    Yes, as I said above, he really is a decent guy. Had he merely gloried in the exploits of his own ancestors and left the rest of us alone, he would not have stirred up the hard feelings he did. But he felt it necessary to tell the rest of us that we were the descendants of Basque aborigines.

    So, on the one hand I kind of like the guy, but on the other I'm glad ancient dna kicked his ass.

    He wasn't the only one though. I recall another dork on Rootsweb, shortly after L21 was rediscovered, who said that L21 men were in Britain digging in the dirt with deer antlers when his glorious ancestors were running the Bell Beaker culture on the Continent (literally, that's what he said). I forget what his y-dna haplogroup was, but he predicted the Amesbury Archer would belong to it. It might have been E-V13, but I'm not sure.

    We know how that turned out.

    Well, how some guys invest so much ego in their haplogroup Y always amazed me. My own secret greatest source of pleasure is my father's Mt. K1c1c, poor relic of a line of doubtless miserable women in a removed corner of Finland. To everyone his thing.

    I'm pretty sure no matter what my y haplogroup had turned out to be, I would have found something to like about it, something to be interested and to glory in. That's kind of how I'm bent, plus I loved and practically worshiped my dad. I connect my y-dna with him (naturally), so whatever it is is more than sufficient for me.

    I have spoken to him as well via email. Nice guy who helped me update the History section of the FTDNA U152 page when I was an admin there. He does have a claim to fame as being the 1st person identified as U152/S28 via commercial testing. Dr Faux was a partner at EthnoAncestry testing. A week later, Charles Kerchner was the first customer to test positive for U152/S28. This was back in Dec 2005.

    The actual first person identified as U152/S28 was an anonymous Utah man.
    U152/S28 came to the knowledge of the scientific community through the publication of the paper Whole-Genome Patterns of Common DNA Variations in Three Human Populations by David A. Hinds et al. in Science on 18 Feb 2005. The single positive subject in the Hinds paper was NA07349, or CEPH1345-01, a Utah Mormon from the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphism Humain (CEPH) collection, available at the Coriell Institute. Dr. Pui-Yan Kwok at the University of California, San Franscisco (UCSF) had discovered this SNP prior to its submission to Single Nucleotide Polymorphism database (dbSNP) on 18 May 2004.
    More here. https://www.familytreedna.com/groups...out/background..

    As the actual date of U152's discovery is unknown, some time prior to 18 May 2004, I've unofficially adopted 18 May 2004 as the date of U152's discovery.

    May 18th: U152 Day. Feel free to take that day off and take a drink of your favorite beverage from a replica Bell Beaker

    I mentioned some of that back here.

    He is essentially a nice guy, once you get to know him, but he made himself obnoxious back in those early days with his Rootsweb and then dna forums posts, as almost any R1bxU152 guy who was around then can testify.

    I have to remind myself of his email persona, because the more I recall his posts, the less charitable I feel.

    Funny thing. Apparently the OP in this thread was written by DKF himself.

    Rather interesting to note the comments about me reported above.

    Actually ancient DNA has come to my rescue - big time. The Olalde et al., 2018 study shows that the majority of the Bell Beaker Y haplogroups (about 40) on the Continent were U152 + L2 (none L20). None were found in Britain (as predicted) where R-L21 was in the majority. Then there is the Margaryen et al., 2019 study of Viking era genomes which shows that on the Danish island of Funen 20% of Viking graves were R-U152 (one was L2 and the other L20 - yes, my haplogroup). Another L20 was seen on Langeland just below Funen (the predicted "hotspot" for the Cimbri descendants after the departure of the Angles after circa 447 AD). Another L2 was observed at Skara, Sweden in an area under Danish hegemony. One of the Danes murdered during the St. Brices' Day Massacre in Oxford, UK and dumped into a mass grave was R-U152. Autosomal data shows that all these R-U152/S28 had high "Danish-Like" DNA but also varying amounts of Southern European-Like DNA (as predicted since the Cimbri were in large part descended from the Celtic tribes of Switzerland and Italy who accompanied the former back to the Jutland area after the defeat by the Romans in 101 BC). The data is consistent with the original hypothesis dating back to 2005 - 14 years ago. Only ancient DNA would ever offer the icing on the cake in terms of evidence - that much I knew years ago. Surely it won't be long before we have ancient DNA data on the Angles of eastern Jutland and their descendants in eastern England (perhaps also samples from Normandy). I don't for a minute believe that U152 will predominate (likely I1 and R-U106 will outnumber all other haplogroups), but simply that R-U152/S28 will be "well representated" to the extent that it can explain the observation of a U152 affinity for the Angle regions of England, and the Danelaw.

    If I'm well understanding that you, falconson1, are actually DKF ("the comments about me"). Just want to add to what I wrote earlier that I'll be really happy if your theses eventually appear to be confirmed, and I know some familiars in my Normand countryside who will be incredibly happy. I've carefully kept all of your texts in my archives and I'm going to read them again. I have not met only polite and tactful gentlemen since I started to interest myself in the genetic matters, far from it, but as I told I kept the remembering that you were one. Friendly greetings.

    Really?

    With regard to the Cimbri-cum-Vikings, that is debatable, not to mention highly doubtful, but on many other points it's pretty plain ancient dna did the opposite of rescuing you.

    I remember how you championed the Franco-Cantabrian LGM Refuge for R1b long after most others had abandoned it, and how you said the Proto-Indo-Europeans were chiefly R1a. I also recall claims from you that L21 arose in Ireland in the bodies of the y-line descendants of the Mesolithic Basques who had arrived there when the ice retreated at the end of the LGM.

    There was much much more, including your classic statements that for most of us M269 was it, that there simply weren't any more mutations downstream of M269 to be discovered, and that S21 and S28 (U106 and U152, for newbies who don't know the old names) were "sister clades". That last one was prior to the discovery of S116 (P312), which of course linked S28 to the rest of us lowly "Basque" serfs.

    Those boners occur to me right off the top of my head, without going and searching old posts for more.
