    Results from Genealogy DNA testing are in!

    Hey guys!
    I have BK on my "google alerts" and got this story yesterday:

    "Using Geneology to Identify an Amnesia Victim"

    which says the results of his Y-DNA genealogy DNA tests are in.

    "A 50/60 year old amnesia victim going by the name of Benjaman Kyle recently had his Y-DNA tested in an attempt to learn something about his origins; resulting in a close 37 marker connection with several members of the POWELL Surname DNA surname project at FamilyTreeDNA.

    I think this is the best news we have had yet! I guess we should get started with the sleuthin'.

    There are nine states that Joseph Powell family show on map/ y dna.
    http://www.familytreedna.com/public/...ction=yresults
    Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, S Carolina, N Carolina, Virginia, Tennesse, New York, Wisconsin. Then, 6 in United Kingdom (Worcester, Heresford, and one close to Warrington, the others I cannot see a name).
    Then, one(1) in Ireland, in Dunamanway.
    And Europe.
    One (1) close to Baden Baden, Germany and one (1) that looks like it is east of Afghanistan and northeast of Pakistan, just inside China's border.

    I hope I got these correct. Let's change it, as needed.

    Pulling the list of possible last names from the general discussion thread.

    Howell
    Pauwel
    Pauwels
    Pouel
    Powel
    Powells
    Powels
    Powell

    I'd like to add these to the tags with missing. We can each only add two, but I would like to see them added in the event anyone of BK's family or friends are looking for him and for whatever reason were unable to file a missing persons report.

    I'm also going to ask if we can please, pretty please, keep the discussion regarding this last name possibility within this thread as opposed to the general discussion thread which already has 500 posts for easier finding and reference. There is no reason to keep everything into the GD thread when we have an entire forum here. TY!

    Do you want us to hit topix boards with the information of Ben being a Powell?, especially in Denver and Indianapolis?

    We do not know "Ben is a Powell" at this point.
