I just had the same problem tho I have been registered for several years. They are "upgrading" the website. (They have always had rather military-grade dense security! Finally got through.

Everyone and their dog can read the postings.

Google and Ask Jeeves are logged on all of the time.

Well Google, Ask Jeeves and the dog must not be "persona-non-grata" it will NOT let me even read the X thread..

As hard as the military...

We spent 21 years in the Air Force, and this was as hard as the security in the military....Tryed every combo I could think of...Quite frustrating...I finally gave up monthes ago. Oh even tryed for new account too. Then last night I decided to try new account again, got in...These time I am writing down my info so this won't happen again....

me newbie

I recently joined the dna-forums.org, and the only trouble I had was when I used an alternate browser. So I had to join again on that particular browser. But I haven't checked today yet.

The Mohawks of Ontario (my home Province) are descendants of those who fought with the British in the American Revolution (except the Mohawks of Gibson who are an offshoot from Kanesatake, Quebec). All were members of the Church of England (as most are to this day). Those who followed Capt. John Deserontyon were given land at Tyendinaga (near Kingston) Ontario. Those who followed Capt Joseph Brant were given lands along the Grand River near Brantford Ontario. I have ancestors who settled at both locations but most of my grandmother's family resided in the latter place (where I lived before moving to California). My Mohawk and German ancestors (the latter being given land on the Rez due to intermarriage) were all Loyalists and were settled in their new homes by 1784.

You are thinking of the Kanawaki, Akwesasne and Kanesatake Mohawks of Quebec who migrated from the Mohawk Valley in the 1600s to reside with the French. Whole other group, but presumably pretty much the same X DNA - one might assume.

I had a bit of a "tiff" with some members of this group (largely in relation to my moderating the R-U152 subforum) and I bailed. Some of us are exploring options with another group who have offered to provide webspace and some perks so that we can set up a study group there for us X addicts - where we can upload material, post links to important papers, and chat about what this or that means. Will keep all posted on developments here.

Thank you! That would be absolutely super..we could maybe link to the X database or even start another one..
I believe the X markers and haploblocks are significant.Tom Krahn told me way back when that the Haploblock could someday be "almost" as meaningful as the Y haploblock.We are now in it's infancy however..
