Sundry Snippets of Information
Modal Haplotype (AMH)-
commonest European haplotype, mostly along
and Haplogroups - Haplogroups are
indicators of pre-historical migratory patterns.
Haplogroup - The Toadvine-1 Haplotype
comes into this group, includes the AMH.
Haplogroup - The Wiltshire-1 Haplotype
falls into the N3 group which is found in many peoples
from Finland, Northern Russia and Northern Siberia.

who was born
about 1778, but the legend says
Lipps mother married a Vines.
North Carolina resident, descendant of early
settlers, has the
same Y chromosome DNA as
some Wiltshire Vines

were Vines settlers
in adjoining counties of NC.
Pepys Diary - Vines are mentioned
15 times in the diary of the famous Londoner
1600s; card playing was a pastime of these

Interesting Case - DNA testing shows that
Soper have matching DNA. In 1790 census
were neighbours; adoption, name change,
so long ago, now revealed? See also Eureka
