Parental DNA results

My parental (Y-Chromosme) results are in.  I am J1 Haplogroup which is a haplogroup of Middle East origin, specificly Arabian peninsula.  Quote [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_J_(Y-DNA)#J1 ]:

Haplogroup J1, defined by the 267 marker is most frequent in the Arabian Peninsula Yemen(76%)[1], Saudi (64%) [2], Qatar (58%)[3], and Dagestan (56%)[4]. J1 is generally frequent amongst Arab Bedouins (62%[5]. It is also very common among other Arabs such as those of the southern Levant, i.e. Palestinian Arabs (38.4%) [6], in Algeria (35%)[7], Iraq (68%),Tunisia (31%)[8], Syria (30%), Egypt (20%)[9], and the Sinai Peninsula. The frequency of Haplogroup J1 collapses suddenly at the borders of Arabic speaking countries with mainly non-Arabic speaking countries, such as Turkey (9%) and Iran (9.5%) [10], but it is also highly frequent among Ashkenazi Jews from Europe (19%), compared to the general European population [1].”

Genealogy Project – mtDNA

My National Geographic mtDNA analysis became available to me today.  I (or rather my maternal lineage) comes most likely from Western Europe.  I belong to Haplogroup H.  This group is mostly found in Western Europe but it does exist in lesser percentages in Asia.

Here is the Wikipedia entry for Haplogroup H.  Once my paternal (Y Chromosom) results are returned, I will update this document.  To keep this document short, I am moving the discussion into the Forum.  To submit your own DNA sample, check out the Genographic project.

Medawar Spelling!

A Recent tip from Walid Medawar:

Redondo is Medawar in spanish !! and apparently, many medawars have their family names as Redondo.

so the list is longer now!!!!

(Al) Medawar – (Al) Mdawar – (Al) Modawar – (Al) Mudawar – (Al) Medwar – (Al) Moudawar – Modovar -Redondo

Funny Places 4 Family Faces

Laugh too much…

 As we grow up
We learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down
Probably will
You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts
You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them,
And you’ll cry because time is flying by
So take too many pictures,
Laugh too much
Forgive freely
And love like you’ve never been hurt
Life comes with no guarantees
No time outs
No second chances.
You just have to live life to the fullest
Tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off
Speak out
Dance in the pouring rain
Hold someone’s hand
Comfort a friend
Fall asleep watching the sun come up
Stay up late
Be a flirt
And smile until your face hurts
Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all
Live in the moment
Because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.


Celebrating the Passing of Majed in Brevet

Celebrating the Passing of Majed in Brevet: Friday july 24th

The family gathered to congratulate majed on passing the brevet and getting plausible grades. they flooded him with hugs, kisses,and ofcourse gifts.

While the children took turns in playing PS2 and PSP, the Adults engaged in the usual, inevitable political debates. I, on the other hand, was busting my As** off on improving the website Tongue out.

later on, the family gathered around mom’s most delicious home cooked meals to fill their tummy’s and then return to their previous activities.

after a long night of eating and sharing, it was late for the guest’s to pack up their kidsTongue out and head back home.

here are some photos to illustrate the event:
