More news about "ELDERS with an S" kit #219446" -- This kit has been
added to the I2b1 Study - titled "I-M223, where the PAXTANG ELDER kits are also now posted.
"ELDERS with an S" kit has been identified there as a "ROOTS" category,
 instead of "SCOTLAND" with the PAXTANG ELDER kits, so
it's possible that this one may be  sorted eventually into a category of "Danish Vikings" from Yorkshire, England. 
 On our ELDER "Goals" menu,  the kit is in a category by itself with my description:
Z15 - #219446  McKinder ELDERS b. 1830 TN  (may connect with Yorkshire, Eng. - Vikings)
with my notes for his family in the USA posted
