What readers are saying:
“Your work about R1b-L513 is original and very interesting in my opinion. What astonished me is the story of Saint Padarn [in relation to my own research of this tribe]. I’m happy to know that we have common ideas about [this tribe].”

“I enjoyed your read! And while I focused on the migration paths and history as it relates to our R-L513 – A – 2 Mag Uidhir [Maguire] lines, I am happy to see Garvey and Burns addressed so well. Your observation about the Domesday book is spot on.”
