Those of us who have Rh-negative blood type are extremely curious. Our minds swirl with family conspiracies that could have given us this uncommon classification. Our research leads immediately to the Basque or to the ancient Iranian Jews and even to UFOs and aliens from other planets. Seriously, if you haven’t seen the alien articles, you’re not one of us.
Lately, I’ve been playing around with the genealogy DNA matching site called Gedmatch. They have entries for a lot of the population groups that have high percentages of Rh-negative like the Basque and the Berbers. It will take years to understand the half of these colorful pie charts and what they represent, nor do I know how accurate they are. But science is science and when I read that clones of ancients were used to help form clusters, that sounds interesting. Thank you, archaeologists.
Some of us with Rh-negative blood type are a little suspicious. Inheriting this blood type doesn’t necessitate a conspiracy. It does though, require that we dig deep into our genetic origins. The Admixture/Oracle Population Search Utility on the Gedmatch site does just that.
