Hey all,

As I await my results from ftdna, I want to try to improve upon my literacy regarding ydna and attempt to learn more about my haplogroup (or would it be haplotype??). As the title suggests, 23andme predicted my haplogroup as being BY451. I am looking to know what the synonyms/alternate names for this haplogroup are and what might be known about it. Needless to say the tendency for there to be multiple names for the same thing makes all of this rather confusing for someone getting started in this.
