    My confirmed haplogroup: R-FT176237
    by Texan1836
    I decided to go for Big Y and now my Haplogroup has moved from R-M269 to R-FT176237

    Unfortunately I have no matches at B-Y700 level. Only at 12 and 25 markers. ( 687 and 247 matches ) ( no 37, 67 or 111 ! )

    Is it normal that FTDNA give a Haplogruop and then change it?...
