No, I do not.  The idea that the DNA from a small group of about 20-30
people in the Lehi party would have a significant impact on the populations
already in the Americas is hard to accept and understand.

If you can somehow show what kind of DNA you are looking for you will
already be way ahead of those who are claiming they cannot find it.  What
does the DNA of Lehi look like????  Furthermmore it is the female DNA that
passes down intact through the years and most of the female lineage is not
identified in the BofM.  What is the linage of Ismael and Zoram?

group of LDS apologists that are tracking the issue.
