Hi! I am not a guy but I had the y chromosome recently tested on my brother. It said he was R1b. We are trying to narrow down at least the surname of my father's unknown father (and my parents and I already did test with ancestry.com). I have lots of clues but seems like his y chromosome line may have come through Canada and before that Northwestern Ireland.

He did he 44 marker test. I am having his subclade tested now but seems to me he has a very common R1b subclade in Ireland (from what I have read). Does anyone know how to tell?

Also what are some good places for me to post his results? (to get any possible clues for my unknown paternal grandpa?). Thanks

Northwestern Ireland is dominated by R1b-L21 men, with a very large subset of those men having the downstream M222 mutation, which is the so-called "Niall of the Nine Hostages" subclade. It looks like you posted Single Tandem Repeat (STR) data, which is more useful for identifying recent ancestors and less useful for identifying subclades, for which you really need Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) results.

Search your father's AncestryDNA test for the following value: rs20321

The row should look something like this:

rs20321 24 14902414 A A

What matters above all is the first value. It must say exactly "rs20321", not "rs2032134" or anything like that.

Post what you find.

Sorry but ancestry.com does not have any y chromosome information on my Dad. My brother is being tested for the subclade and I will let you know the results when it comes back. At first I suspected my Dad's paternal grandfather was of Danish descent but my brother's closest y chromosome links were a bunch of guys with Irish surnames and looking like they might have just come from Ireland. My father is actually darker (since his maternal grandma was ''dark Irish'' that looked Spanish as can be) but my brother does look like he could be Irish I suppose

If you go to the Home page of eupedia (the host here) and look at Genetics you will find good information on your R1a and R1b haplogroup connection. All R1b have one thing in common red hair. In Genetics click on R1b. There is a menu on the left side. Go to the bottom of the menu and local "Other DNA pages." Scroll down to "Origins of red hair." I think you will find it is very helpful. I believe it will answer some of your questions about R1b.

I tried to send the link but I forgot about vBulletin and 10 posts before links rule.

I forgot to add that R1a is blonde. With a R1b father and a R1a mother (with blonde hair) they had one of each. I have the red hair and my brother is the blonde. The 45th Parallel is very interesting.

I actually ordered the correct test but this company told me this is as far as they usually test for (with subclades). The gentleman on the phone did tell me they might rule out additional subclades if I tell them which subcludes I want to rule out. I would like rule out subclades common in Ireland if possible. Can anyone help me with which subclades to ask for?

Thank you

S116 or P321 is also very common in North Ireland so does not tell you much. In my opinion, if you are trying to identify your paternal grandfather the STRs along with the autosomal you already have on your father are your best course to follow at this time. Have you put the STRs on YSearch and atDNA on Gedmatch yet? Also if need a few additional STRs for comparison with a potential match you can purchase them at YSeq.

Good luck in your search
Mike

With a R1b father and a R1a mother

You just made my day man! You just made my day! :laughing: ​:lmao:
