Group Description

R1b is a haplogroup or branch of the human family tree of paternal lineages. It is marked by a mutation of the Y chromosome named M343.
See the Wiki article for R1b. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1b_%28Y-DNA%29
P25 and M269 are part of R1b along with several large younger subclades; L21, U152, DF27, P312, U106, L23x.

R1b is the largest haplogroup for people from Europe. Please consider deeper SNP testing. Most hobbyists recommend that R1b people Geno 2 or SNP test and STR test to at least 67 markers. This helps you find the right subgroups and filters out false matches. 111 STRs is becoming the new standard for analysis.

If you are a National Genographic M343+ or M269+ tester please transfer your results to FTDNA and join the R1b DNA project http://www.familytreedna.com/groups/R-1b/about

When you receive deep clade (SNP) results, please continue in the R1b project, but also join the applicable major subclade of R1b project:

If you are new to DNA testing please join DNA Newbies group http://groups.yahoo.com/groups/DNA-NEWBIE/
