8300 year old Ancient DNA of Kennewick Man

The authors sequenced DNA from a 8358 year-old man from Kennewick (Washington state) USA. I converted the raw data of these samples into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. The complete SNPs are available for download. I also found common SNPs when filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry, and uploaded to GEDmatch as Kit# F999970. Haplogroups, site location, and age of the sample etc as per the authors can be found in Ancient DNA page.
