The geneticist Scott Woodard of BYU was very interested in any information that I had showing a family relationship between Yuya and Thutmose IV. Unfortunately with regard to publishing genetic tests he is now apparently under some kind of gag order. He also no longer responds to email inquiries. Nevertheless I think there is ample evidence to conclude Yuya was the "hereditary prince" (of Egypt and of many other places) he claimed to be and a bonified member of the royal family. There are many bogus ideas held by anthropologists and archaeologists. What we have learned here is that there was only one ruling family in the Near East and they strove to be "all things to all people".
