I tested 3.5yrs ago for E-V13, and i took the big y last year. The big y wasnt able to catergories me in a subclade, therefore im in limbo at BY3880.
My parents are from northwestern macedonia, about 3 miles from Serbia Kacanik border. My roots come from Urosevac and prior to that a village from Strpce municipality called Kostanjevo. I tested 3.5yrs ago for E-V13, and i took the big y last year. The big y wasnt able to catergories me in a subclade, therefore im in limbo at BY3880. Im rather frustrated because all from that area generally fall within a couple of the same subclades. So im wondering why would i be any different when im literally from the epicenter of E-V13. THOUGHTS comments appreciated...
Can you give me any information about Z16242 (Z5018)? I can't find anything about it.
Also, Z16242 and L17's seem to have this connection in both Portugal/England, how so?
Im now E-BY14160My Big Y results also show me to be in the PH1246 > BY14151 subclade and my paternal line traces back to northern Andros, Greece. There is a small Arvanite community (Albanians who arrived to Greece in late Middle Ages). My paternal surname however is suspected to originate from Italy--Andros was once Venetian territory.
PH1246 and its smaller clades (including BY14151) seem to be relatively less tested.
I am one of the rare E-A160/Z16242+ from England, which is currently confined to a single family that traces its earliest-known-Y-ancestors to Felsham, Suffolk(1327-1570 in all 3 lines, producing 4 immigrant Y-descendants: 2 brothers (one Y-descendant of the younger brother is YF05423 in the YFull tree), one of their Y-first-cousins (YF05422), and one of their Y-second-cousins (YF05421), came to what is now the USA in 1635, 1634, 1645; respectively).
All 3 immigrant lines are E-Z5018+, E-Z16242+, E-L1019+ (Z5018 was covered in my Y-Elite 2.0 test taken in 2015, but was not covered in Big Y test taken in 2013; E-Z5018+ was confirmed by YSEQ).
The only other E-Z16242+ I am aware of at this time are:
1) one anonymous 1000 Genomes kit (HG01107) from Puerto Rico with no stated earliest-known-Y-ancestor location, who is E-Z16242+, E-L1019-,
2) two E-Z16242+, E-L1019- V68 SNP panel kits from Brazil; one of which has a stated earliest-known-Y-ancestor from Portugal.
I am not aware that E-L17 or E-Z16242 have been found in the Balkans at this point, though other E-Z5018 subclades such as E-A2192, E-Z17293, and especially E-S2979 are found in the Balkans. The E-L17 observation is older; the E-Z16242 discovery and observation came after Lacan et al. published in 2011 their finding of ancient E-V13 on the Iberian Peninsula: "Ancient DNA suggests the leading role played by men in the Neolithic dissemination."
Admittedly even now 6 years into NGS-SNP testing it is too soon to say that E-L17 and E-Z16242 will never be found in the Balkans, but until they are, another possible theory has been that E-L17 and/or E-A160/E-Z16242 were brought to the Roman Province of Hispania by E-Z5018 carriers, possibly at a time after the encroachment of the Roman Empire into the Iberian Peninsula from 220 BCE onward.
Regarding the latter possibility, I have been studying for the past three years the 833-page Ph.D. dissertation of the late Prof. Margaret Roxan (1924-2003; she was an expert authority on Roman military inscriptions): "The Auxilia of the Roman Army Raised in the Iberian Peninsula," and have seen so far: 1) one cavalry unit, Ala I Hispanorum, that has been attested at a number of sites that parallel contemporary sites where E-L17+ has been found so far in Germany and most notably in (Vlach)-Dacia/Romania, 2) two cavalry units: Ala I Hispanorum Asturum and Ala Hispanorum Vettonum, that were attested in Britannia/England before (A-H-Asturum may have been part of the original invasion in 43 CE), or at the time of (A-H-Vettonum) the destruction of the Roman retirement colony at Camulodunum; now Colchester, Essex (about 20 miles south of Felsham, Suffolk) during the Boudican Iceni Revolt of ~60 AD.
(You_Tube video re-enacts the annihilation of the Legio IX Hispana and an attached cavalry unit in the Battle of Camulodunum NW of Colchester, Essex near Great Wratting, Suffolk and Sturmer, Essex):

Because it is relatively young and widespread, more useful for the origin of CTS9320 is to look at it's immediate parent clades:
1. E-CTS6377 includes Bulgarian from Stara Zagora area, also Greek Vlahopoulos with close STR matches and Medieval common ancestry with a Bulgarian. Vlachs are not native to Greece so Vlahopulos (his surname might be an indication of his origins) must have arrived from north relatively recently.
Andalusian cluster of Spanish CTS6377, not yet on Yfull, their distance to Bulgarian is around 2700 ypb, it's on 67 markers so not as reliable like it is on 111 but what is important is that they both share the distinct STR values of dys385=14-18 and GATAH4=10. So these values for CTS6377 are old and it is fully justifiable to look for them in CTS6377 candidates. One of very few such candidates from anonymous studies is an Ukrainian haplotype from Lviv area, it is highly likely he is also CTS6377. Other than him I have not seen any other good CTS6377 candidates.
I’m CTS6377. I testedNegative for CTS9320 for my Big Y (FTDNA). I see CTS9320 has substantial subgroups within it. I’m wondering if CTS6377 has other subgroupsbesides CTS9320?
My kit number is 803702 and I’m part of the large M-35 FTDNAgroup they have. Is there one for SK888or lower, basically where we are.
Anyway, I saw you were looking for terminal CTS6377 and I’mthe only one that I know of.
I don't have an explanation, but the situation sounds familiar.
Soon after my Walk-through-the-Y test in 2012 had detected what was at that time my single unique SNP, E-L1019, I had asked a Y37 of unknown origin (33/37 match), a Y31 from Bulgaria, and a Y31 from Greece who both matched me closely to take the E-L1019 single-SNP test. All three tests were E-L1019-, and now 6 years later: 1) the Y37 of unknown origin and the Y31 from Greece are both still E-CTS5856*, 2) the Y31 from Bulgaria remained E-CTS5856* for a time, but eventually tested Z5017+, Z19851+.
Depending on the Y-SNP test you took, an available branch connecting you to the haplotree could be accessible in a test with greater coverage. The coverage of E-Z5017 and its subclades in the Big Y test is extensive, but my main branch E-Z5018 was not covered, but was covered in the Y-Elite test. The 2018 ISOGG tree still shows S2979, L17, A2192, Z17293 and Z16242 as independent subclades of V13 rather than as subclades of Z5018, and Z5018 is not shown anywhere in the haplotree.
You're being sarcastic right?I created a map of CTS9320 based on some projects from Family Tree DNA.

Its distribution reminds me of both I-M423 and R1a-M458. Its origin must have been somewhere along the Northwest Coast of the Black Sea and it could have been common among the Dacians. I believe that the Goths first brought CTS9320 into South Balkans and North Italy and then the early Slavs carried more of it into Balkans and Central Europe.
