IMO the issue is the yelling.

It has long been netiquette that the use of caps is YELLING. The only exception, as far as I know, is when someone uses internet slang such as LOL, AFAIK, etc.

Please use italics or bold to emphasize, but no caps unless you want to be gagged. The use of caps=yelling is not new so for the life of me I don't understand why people persist.

Stop it.

Indeed. I'm getting really sick of being the hall monitor.

There were people who CHOSE to stop being publically labeled as Jews generations ago to avoid issues with neighbors who might not have been tolerant of other religions in a world that had NOT developed the concept of "politically correct".  Or even "religious tolerance". 

So - the French-Canadians or other small pockets of people with the gene MIGHT have a common ancestor from the Ashkenazi population of a century or two ago.  Or it might be a mutation that appeared independently...something for the doctors and scientists to research.

And they have ; it is a different mutation in the French -Canadian population. Researchers aren't stupid; this would have been something they checked- and did check early on. No need to be hostile towards me.

Mom retired from the medical research field in the 1990s - I no longer get updates on the latest research when visiting them...and I don't always remember the details of "dinner conversation" after twenty years, even if she did read anything about it and mentioned it to me when I was visiting.

I was simply musing out loud - no hostility intended.  I'm sorry if you read anything into my musings...
