Subject: [I-M223] SNP's L699, L701, L702, L703, L704 for P78+ (Cont3a)
After the I2b1-XX WTY, I encouraged some members of the Cont3a subgroup to test for L1226, as there are many similarities between Cont3a and I2b1-XX that could mean shared ancestry (as opposed to convergence). I would like to thank members of the Cont3a and I2b1-XX groups who took the tests and proved L1226 to be a more downstream SNP.
Meanwhile, we have recently become aware of an anonymous WTY by a similar I2b1-XX member. That WTY discovered even more SNP's: L699, L701, L702, L703, L704.
I would like to encourage members of the Cont3a group to test for these SNP's as we hope to find one or a few SNP's that unite P78 to I2b1-XX. There is no further need to test for L1226. The recommended SNP's to P78 are: L699, L701, L702, L703, L704.

The collection of up-to-recently old M223* haplotypes with 14 at 464a, 8,9 at 459 and very often 13 at 456, and then 11 (or 12) at DYS406 seems to have new snps L1226, L699, L701-704 thanks to a recent WTY result.
Much if not most of the rest of M223+ shows negative for these snps from other recent WTY results. There seems one loophole --- the P78+ subhaplogroup. No recent WTY or actual snp tests seem to be out there
on these snps for P78+ I urge some P78+ to do these snps. This testing load can be shared among several P78+
The STR characteristics I mention above are largely shared by P78+ increasing the chances they may share some of these new snps as well. This would help order the node structure of the M223+ sector y tree during the earliest period of its existence.
L1226 is actually the brand new snp discovery; some of us dropped the ball last fall in not pushing some testing for snps L699, L701...... which were first found then, but now pop up again in a very recent WTY.
