  1. Or, you could just say, "David Cameron's DNA may carry the Cohen Modal Haplotype" and leave it at that.

    Who was it said to be descended from Adam was honor and shame enough for anyone?

    Levites form about 1/25th of the world Jewish population.Regarding Darrell's comments about genetic tracing, Levites (on average) display distinct genetic characteristics to Kohanim; see, for example here or here.

    Hello – I am a direct descendant of Moses – he is my 62 times Great Grandfather. I can trace him person to person in my Family tree


    • Claire,

      I am glad to know that you are a descendant of Moses. I have to say that I am very skeptical of anyone being able to trace their relatives that far back, but I will take your word that you and Moses are related.

      Thank you for visiting my blog.

        I completely understand your scepticism Claude!

        I do apologise – Moses is my 58 times Great Uncle not my Great Grandfather.

        All the best – Claire


      • Claire,

        I mean no criticism about your claims. The problem I see is that it is very difficult to keep reliable records over a period of more than 3,000 years. If your records are correct, you belong to a great family.
