Re: L1290+ and/or L1317+ in I-M223 Haplogroup need to test Z183
- K Nordtvedt has identified the following STR values as ones that indicate the SNPs L1290 and L1317. When I type in these values at Y Search I get quite a few matches. There are at least three M223 FTDNA members who on this basis could be added to the ContX1 511=10 group and that might encourage them to test for L1290 and L1317.
The STR values are:
There is a Johnston 19048 (Johnston DNA Project) who some time ago did a WTY and I am wondering if that WTY included Z183. If he is postive for it then so am I since he and I both tested + for L1290 and L1317.
According to K Nordtvedt this clade represented by the above STR values is quite robust. He includes about 20 names.

A number of people in the I-M223 Project are predicted as derived based on their STR markers or family association with someone that is derived. Neither of these SNPs are listed by ISOGG as yet. They are in the Z161 sector downstream of L801/Z76. They may be phyloequivalent. We need another one or two people that are predicted as L1290+ or L1317+ to actually test for these SNPs so we can have them listed by ISOGG (Zänder, Taylor, Austen, Johnstone 17795 and a Johnston with origin Ireland).
> What is unknown about both SNPs is if they are parallel to Z183 or downstream of Z183. So we also need some people that are L1290+ and/or L1317+ to test for Z183 (Braun, Johnston 16711, Johnstone 113471)
> If you or another family member are L1290+ or L1317+ and have not joined the Y Haplogroup I-M223 Project, we urge you to do so as Project Administrators have limited means to know what SNPs you have tested and what the results are. Having so few actual positive results known, means Project administrators have sparce evidence to support any application to ISOGG to have these SNPs recognised in the I-M223 tree.
