Turi King is a Cdn-Brit. Professor of genetics at Leister U. She is one of the geneticists who discovered a Cdn from London Ont as a direct descendent. The other was an Australian women, I think. Both were invited to Richard Third’s reburial. Easy to find details online.
King has a BBC tv program called DNA family Secrets. I find it a bit tiresome, but maybe others may wish to look it up. Thanks for this bit, John.
