  • here is my email response.:

    We haven’t received these R1b results from the lab yet; they’re having a lot of difficulty with some of the SNPs in the panel and are trying to resolve at least a few of these before they send us the results. We’re hoping to receive the results this week.

    E-mail any time,

      Hmmm . . .

      Sounds like that could be what we have been discussing: P25- .

      Maybe not, but it could be.

      • I wonder if family dna are not biting off more than they can chew?


        too many question marks ????????????????

        I am lost.....

          I think there must be a lot of R1b tests going on. If one runs into an SNP problem with one's biggest customer base, that is going to mean delays.

          As I pointed out once or twice before, over 70% of all YSEARCH entries are R1b.

          A problem with R1b is a BIG problem!

          • yes..but what was the other company that tested more snp's.
            I might put an order in there if it's worth it..

              Was it Ethnoancestry?

                • I don't want to spend another $200-300 for Ethnoancestry's additional R1b SNPs. I may do it at a later date, who knows?

                  As I understand it, those SNPs have not been confirmed by the scientific community in any published research papers, and they're not likely to be, as long as EA keeps them a private, cash-generating secret.

                  Who can verify the claims being made about them under present conditions?

                  I guess I'll probably wait for FTDNA to test for more downstream R1b-SNPs. They seem to be more conservative than EA, perhaps a bit plodding, but one is sure of what he is getting.

                    I tend to agree, Stevo......altho the hype being generated by Ethonancestry is indeed alluring, I'm not quite ready to plunk down another $300 for just a few more downstream markers. I'm a patient man and can wait til FTDNA fixes the R1b1 deep clade testing.....still waiting here for the re-test that was due 01 May...

                    If Ethonacestry would allow a ala carte testing for specific R1b1 downstream markers, I might have to think twice, however!

                        I'm hoping FTDNA will test for more downstream R1b-SNPs soon.

                        They've been good to me thus far, so I have a certain feeling of loyalty.

                        I think perhaps we should email FTDNA and politely request more downstream R1b-SNPs.

                        After all, there are a whole lot of us R1bs. If a bunch of us knock, chances are the door will open.

                          Not that I have heard.

                          Has that been a problem, too?

                          That's R1b1c8, right?

                            They do. After the one time set up fee ($85) and extraction ($49), the first SNP is $36. Additional SNP's, even months or years down the road are $40 each.

                            I got the above info, which is under 'Custom Select SNPs', off their web site.

                            Unless FTDNA adds some of the additional SNPs relevant to us Hap Grp I folks, if I were to test, I'd probably go with Ethnoancestry. FTDNA made a great business decision in offering a good number of the known SNPs relevant to the R1 folks who are in the majority of people doing DNA testing. I'd just like to see a few more of the known SNPs relevant to I1a.

                            • Is it the same process and waiting period?

                                Yes, Stevo

                                I only know they had to re-run it all because they had some problems.

                                P66 is a very misterious SNP. There's no literature nor speculations either about it and until now it was found only in two Italian samples.
