A baby girl who lived and died in what is now Alaska at the end of the last ice age belonged to a previously unknown group of ancient Native Americans, according to DNA recovered from her bones.
The newly-discovered group, named “ancient Beringians”, appears to have split off from the founding population of Native Americans about 20,000 years ago. While the ancestors of other Native Americans pushed south into the continent as the ice caps thawed, the ancient Beringians remained in the north until they eventually died out.
PS: I'm given up trying to figure out why ATS can no longer post images. I'm not running any adblock software. Tried posting from imgur. Can't upload because none of the buttons work, in any brower (FF, Chrome, even resorted to IE). Flat out give up. Clink on broken image link to see pic of Beringa.

The true story of humans ,our history,our DNA,we will never be told the truth,pretty much in a nutshell we were a new species put on earth,as well as the animals alongside us,the moon is a perfectly placed sattelite,all the story's I've been told do not make sense,because the numbers don't add up,we are as lost as a herd of sheep
The presence of two geochemically distinct microspherule populations found by us in Late Pleistocene skull
fragments points to at least two episodes of cosmic impact, and/or diferent target source rocks, and the skull ages
(~18–48 ka B.P.; Table S1; Fig. 9) indicate that perhaps a greater number of such episodes (~2–4) occurred. It is
also unclear how many separate extinction events there were both before and afer the LGM. Cooper et al.
a distinct cluster of events between ~37 and 32 ka, corresponding to D-O interstadials 5–7, and the question
arises whether these extinctions with overlapping ages could have resulted from a single short-lived event. By
comparing our 14C dates with the extinction age ranges in Fig. 9, it appears plausible that there could have been
fewer discrete impact-related extinction events prior to the LGM, possibly occurring around 40–42 ka, 34–37 ka,
and 27–30 ka, with another at the onset of the YD stadial (~13 ka)26–28.
