Some Facebook fun for Hanukkah.
There is more where that came from, but this will suffice.

There is no special significance to that mutation. Your cousin just appears to have a heteroplasmic mutation at that spot.
the Y in the C6925Y means that some of the mitochondria in the cells that were tested have a C at position 6925 and some of them have a T at position 6925.

|Documents that I found later stated that the family had indeed lived in Jagielnica.|
|These cards show an inquiry by Hans' brother-in-law in Australia and his subsequent passage there in 1948.|
Hans grew up to never be sure of what he had, and felt very insecure. This went on into his adult life because of the Depression and later because of the Hitler oppression. He did not believe in thinking of or preparing for "the future". It was "what you had today" that counted. Have it NOW, spend it NOW, enjoy it NOW. For him there was no "tomorrow". That is how he came to have the nick-name "Tobby". He was known by his family and friends to say each day - "Well, is it To be or not To be" - in reference to whether he would be able to eat that day, get or keep a job that day, or later on to survive that day. He was eventually known jocularly as "To be", and he spelt it as Tobby. When he came to Australia he was naturalised as Hans Milosch Baar (known as Tobby Milton Baar) and on all legal documents became Tobias Milton Baar.
|I moved the record closer to the headings for convenience.|
To work properly, the 2 kits being used should have non-zero X-DNA comparison results. Otherwise, the number of possible paths becomes very large.
Entries in the "comments" box are not used by the software. They were intended to be feedback to us during the development process, but quite frankly no development has been done for several years.Conclusions:
The fact that this tool was returned to the site because users found it useful means that there are users who found it useful. You can hardly argue with that, ready for prime time or not..
If you have significant amounts of endogamy in your family, this is probably not for you.
The calculator is "a work in progress," but that does not mean that is being worked on at this time. The developers themselves refer to it as "experimental."
John and Curtis are very responsive within what their time and resource constraints permit. Not everything is going to be useful for everyone. Knowing that something is not is also useful knowledge. I can hardly complain when three out of four tools are useful.

I have increased the maximum number of segments to 10,000. Please let us know if this works better for you.
