Thanks King John. I've joined the Boyd project, but I don't really have a close enough match on the STRs to get excited at this stage. I have just initiated a Big Y test, so hopefully FTDNA will provide more SNP data and possibly a terminal haplogroup. After a preliminary scan through the Project, the closest match is a guy from Sicily. Thanks for the links, I'll have a close look through them.
Hi, I'm new, and my y-Haplogroup is (per 23&me)


But I don't see any mention of R- here, just R1a and R1b and the like.

My understanding is that R is R-M207, and R1a is R-M420

Is there anyone else here who is just 'R-'?

I'll go for BIG Y later this year to know more.

my ydna for my grandmother line , paternal side is Grandmum paternal side ... I1-Y33791 .............how much difference is that from your marker, as i know very little of the I ydna

she was part of

The R haplogroups, R1b and R1a, are the most common in Western Europe, and Eastern Europe respectively. They are mainly due to Steppe dwelling herders, Yamnaya etc, who moved into Western, West Central, and Eastern Europe (Western Russia, Poland..) during the Bronze Age. Those men killed off most of the male farmers of Neolithic and some Western Hunter Gatherer ancestry. In Britain and Ireland it was 90% replacement. In Iberia it was about 50% overall genetically except for the male lines where it was almost completely replaced. Your general haplogroup is quite common.

I am J-FGC12832 or J-FGC12836. It is within the J1 haplogroup common in Peninsular Arabia, Arabic speaking men. It is thought to be a sign of the Semitic language speaking group. My opinion is that certain groups become common because of founder effects like great warlords eg Genghiz Khan, who end up transmitting their haplogroup by cornering the availability of reproductive women, and restricting access for other men to womenfolk. That is what happened in Iberia and Britain/Ireland, the previous haplogroups were replaced by the Steppe herders.

Some folk think my subclade is a sign of the Phoenicians as it is also found in the area around Palestine, but most bearers live in Sardinia, and Southern Italy. The problem with testing for subclades is that it is expensive, FTDNA and FullGenomes are expensive. It was my sample at FTDNA the found L829, and my FullGenomes sample that found FGC12800 - FGC12850. You don't get any thanks from anyone or discounts for furthering Y chromosome haplogroups research. I am done with that form of dna testing.
Mine is I1-FT80854

An approximation not to be taken too literally. Except perhaps, for the last two subclades.

Your Y-DNA is not just R. You have a newer subclade of R, noted R1a1a1b1a2, or simply Z92 .

If you look in the data on your Y chromosome, you may find other more recent subgroups. For example, you can search for addresses and see what bases (A, C, G or T) you have for each of: rs1002151758, rs113572871, rs1012006203, rs771815396?

Thank you, you've put me on the right track I think!

I can't post links, but on familytreedna, I found

[FONT=&quot]R-Z280 [/FONT][FONT=&quot]R1a1a1b1a2 [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This group is generally central European, some eastern
[FONT=&quot]R-Z92=z660=Z661 [/FONT][FONT=&quot]R1a1a1b1a2a* Many Baltic

I have the DNA data, I'll see what I have for the other bases you mentioned. [/FONT]
