  • In the caption for Figure 1, the symbol for the San population was omitted. Individuals from this population are represented as open orange squares.

  • On page 771, column 2, second full paragraph, line 11, the figure reference should be to Figure 7, not Figure 10.

  • On page 1422, in Figure 7, some of the parameters are misspecified in the legend so that they do not reflect the curves plotted. In part a, the correct value of s2 is 0.03. In part b, the correct value of s1 is 0.03. In the caption, the correct long-term limit of the variance is 10/1045 ≈ 0.096 (rather than 60/5523, corresponding to the misspecified parameter value of 0.3).

  • This paper unfortunately had a very large number of printer's typos in our section on estimating allele age. A complete list of typos (in this section only) is available here.

  • Affiliations for two authors were listed incorrectly. Affiliation 9 should read "Facultad de Medicina and Laboratorios de Investigación y Desarrollo, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru". Giovanni Poletti should be listed with affiliation 8.

  • On page 671 it was stated that θ was estimated using equation 5.12 of Weir (1996). This is not correct. Actually, θ was estimated using the GDA (Genetic Data Analysis) software of P. O. Lewis and D. Zaykin. The computation was therefore done by separately computing for each allele at each locus the numerator and the denominator of the first equation on p. 173. The overall estimate of θ was then obtained as the ratio of the mean of the numerators and the mean of the denominators.

  • In the denominator of eq. 4, (n-1/n) should be (n-1)/n.

  • On page 1468, line 6, H_{k-1} and k-1 should be replaced with H_k and k respectively. In the following equation line, H_{k-1} should be replaced with H_k. The equation marked (10) is correct. This error and its correction are discussed in the supplementary material of Mehta et al. (2016), eq. S2.
