I assume that you're referring to the haplogroup assignment that FTDNA has given you, not a haplogroup assignment from the R1b-U106 Project. (Are you a member of the R1b-U106 Project?) FTDNA is behind in their haplogroup assignment, at least in relation to the trees maintained by the R1b-U106 Project and other projects. You can see the latest version of the R1b-U106 Project tree at https://app.box.com/s/afqsrrnvv2d51msqcz2o,

So, FTDNA is constantly playing catch-up. They have to consult with the haplogroup project administrators about their trees and also do internal research in the FTDNA database to arrive at the most accurate tree. Many people are seeing changes in their FTDNA haplogroup assignment because of this.

Looking at the FTDNA tree, they have Z327 as equivalent to Z331 and Z319 as 5 subclades downstream from Z331/Z327. The R1b-U106 Project tree has Z327 as equivalent to Z326, which is downstream from Z331 but upstream from Z319. So, there is an obvious conflict between the two trees. I would put more trust in the R1b-U106 Project tree, since our project has a comprehensive analysis spreadsheet for close to 800 Big Y results of project members. This allows us to create a more accurate and up to date tree than FTDNA has.

If you haven't yet joined the R1b-U106 Project, please do so. If you have Big Y results, make sure that they're included in our analysis spreadsheet.

I have joined R1b-106 project but have no ideal how to read the spreadsheet thanks
