Hey Blue Eyes!

Did ya hear the news? All of us with blue eyes are descended from the same ancestor!!! This was discovered by the folks at the University of Copenhagen who were comparing mtDNA. Hey, that's the kind of test I'm having! So I guess all of us blue-eyes are on the same tree. (Now that's what I call short-cut genealogy ;-) Here's a shot of my baby blues... If you've got blue eyes too leave me a comment and let me know we're related!

I learned about this from Chris who I now know I'm related to (howdy Cuz!). I wonder if our DNA halogroups would be the same then. Oh listen to me go on about genetic genealogy, LOL!
