Biography

Paternal Haplogroup is R1b1b2a1a (R-U106)

Excerpt from his biography (http://rynn.free.fr/georgebio.php ):


He was nicknamed "the Quiet One" or "the Polite One" though he always said that when he didn't agree with the others, he would assert his opinion clearly. George's father was a busdriver (that's why he will take the buses in horror later on and won't understand Paul's nostalgia not to be able to take the bus any more just like ordinary people during the Beatlemania) and his mother was a housewife. He lived till 6 at Wavertree, 12 Arnold Grove. At 6 he moved to Speke in a bigger council flat with his elder sister and brothers (they were 4 children in all: Louise, Harold, Peter, George.). As he was the younger one he was also the one who required the biggest attention

TEENAGE YEARS

He was the only one who went his studies on to high school. He was accepted in the prestigious Liverpool Institute where he was a rather bad student, despising his teachers. Finally he found a situation as an apprentice electrician. George's mother bought a guitar for him from another student and a guitar tutor. She encouraged him a lot to learn the guitar to go so far as to spend whole nights helping him till he had bleeding fingers.

BEATLE GEORGE

First he felt so excited by success, screaming fans and fame, but he soon got tired of the stupid journalists and photographers that daunted nothing in order to get a scoop. That's why he wanted his future wife Patti Boyd (Patricia Ann Boyd) to give up modeling to avoid the photographers. He met her during the shooting of "A Hard Day's Night" in 1964. He marries her on January 21st, 1966 at Epson. Paul was the only Beatle present at the wedding.

It's the same person, the other PM in the proposed merged had done a John Lennon profile is how I found the George Harrison profile (though I see she got the specific dates slightly wrong).

Harrison-5576 and Harrison-23 appear to represent the same person because: Are they the same person?
