“The idea that any kind of free society can be constructed in which people will never be offended or insulted is absurd. So too is the notion that people should have the right to call on the law to defend them against being offended or insulted. A fundamental decision needs to be made: do we want to live in a free society or not?”

Hi Nancy! My (paternal) grandfather's mtDNA results came in today. He is H4a1. I can trace that maternal line to Anne Wilson born about 1720-1730 - but I am not sure if she was born in the USA (if she was, then it was in PA) or who her parents are.
