FASCINATING Genetic trace history.

Lovely seeing the truth laid out here in scientific black and white - we're all family.

I would have given my right eye as a kid to get to grow up to do this kind of research. I wanted to be a paleontologist or etymologist. It still fascinates me.

I wonder how the language history, laid out over the genetic history, could inform us even further - perhaps tell us the history of inter-relationships and trade, although trading DNA probably covers that pretty well. If you were willing to marry your daughter off to your neighbor, I guess you liked him.

Anyhow, I like this kind of thing, so here you go.
