It's in the Genes . . .

Thanks to Leland for pointing out this article in the Salt Lake Tribune about a discovery in colorectal research. I have a family that arrive in American in February 1630 so I guess that I can now wonder if their descendants are the ones described in the article since the family preferred to remain anonymous.

Update: (1/3) According to Blaine, it is the Fry Family. It wasn't my 1630-arriving family.



  • Interesting medical-genealogical research on a major problem in the U.S. It is a shame that the original surname for the 1600s was not mentioned in the article.

  • Oh my...I hope I don't have any FRYs in my line.
