DNA Consultants' Melungeon DNA Project

"Update, Sept. 16, 2010. The article by Donald N. Panther-Yates and Elizabeth Caldwell Hirschman, "Towards a Genetic Profile of Melungeons in Southern Appalachia," is currently in page proofs at Appalachian Journal and ought to be published sometime this fall. We will post a copy of it here when it appears. In the meantime, we are pleased to post the data containing the profiles of the forty participants (unassociated with name). I will be in communication with each of you over the next few weeks to thank you personally and see if you want to add any information to your case. A big, big thank you to the following for their patience and endurance. This is an enduring benchmark in Melungeon studies!"
