  • Re: 111 market test results in

    My U 106 Z156 BOVER second cousin has 26 matches at 12 markers and none above that (tested to 111 markers). He has 18 Big Y matches who are also Z156. There is

    Yes to all of that. STRs remain the primary basis by which we are able to estimate where people belong. SNPs tell us where they certainly belong. Charles

    S11601 should be on your Chromo test. Let us know how it turns out. Charles ... S11601 should be on your Chromo test. Let us know how it turns out. Charles On

Group Description

This group is associated with the R1b-U106 Y-DNA Haplogroup Project at Family Tree DNA. (Our website is at www.familytreedna.com/public/U106/.) It is open to all members of that project, as well as genetic genealogists and population geneticists who are interested in discovering more about the R1b-M269 subclade defined by the U106 SNP, also known as S21. Although we discuss other issues related to genetic genealogy, the main focus is R1b-U106.

Population geneticists have established over the last couple of decades that the largest haplogroup among men of European ancestry is R1b-M269. In the last several years, scientific studies and test results from Geno 2.0 and Family Tree DNA have indicated that the subclade defined by U106/S21 represents about 13% of the DNA testing community.

As part of our effort to further knowledge of the haplogroup and its subclades, one of the main points of discussion is advice on SNP testing (FTDNA and YSEQ.net) and especially NGS Y-DNA testing (Big Y and Full Genomes, aka FGC). Through the sharing of SNP test results and Big Y and FGC tests and analysis, we have made and will continue to make significant progress in discovering new subclades. Progress in this field of research depends entirely on the voluntary sharing of our DNA results data. We do encourage those with Big Y and FGC results and analysis to upload that data to our Files section for sharing with and analysis by others.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND IF YOU CHOOSE TO PROVIDE US WITH DNA RAW DATA FROM ANY SOURCE, BY YOUR OWN CHOICE, YOU HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION TO PLACE IT INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN. IT'S THEN SUBJECT TO USE BY OTHERS WHO MAY WISH TO PRESENT IT DIFFERENTLY ELSEWHERE.

This group will also discuss theories about the geographic origin and current day distribution of R1b-U106. The group is also a place to share genealogy research and possibly make connections with distant cousins, both in genealogical and deep ancestry time frames.
