      Assumption isn’t that M284 originated in the UK – it is also found in Germany and has twice the genetic variation there.  People who migrate always contain only a subset of the genetic variation of the place they left in a different proportion, and then they often have founder effects.

      Ken's site at http://knordtvedt.home.bresnan.net/ will give you an idea of the STR markers that define Isles E.
      M284+ is mainly found in the U.K. so the assumption is that it originated there.
      And as someone who is also Isles E I feel your pain, we were put on the shelf a couple years ago from a lack of data.
      I've ordered the Big Y too and can't wait for the results.

      I had a question about how I was placed in Isles E. Which STR markers define the group?
      I turned out L1193+ and L1194- but was wondering how you had figured that out beforehand.
      In a related question I've been wondering why M284 is listed as English in most places online.
      Is there a source study for that?
