    will R-U152 or L2 SNP packs be available in near future?

    For people that are already confirmed as R-U152 and L2+, has anyone heard if a U152 or L2 and downstream SNP pack will be available at all, or anytime soon?

    This is why one joins one more projects and asks for expert opinion. It saves confusion, time, and money.

    There's R1B project whose purpose is the guide folks downstream to other projects. These folks know their areas quite well and can make further testing suggestions. I'd suggest joining this one and others.

    Look on the chart on this link: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/r-1b/about

    There's an R-M222 group, too: https://www.familytreedna.com/public...7/default.aspx

    There's an R-L21 group (this one you should really join and ask questions for further testing): https://www.familytreedna.com/groups.../activity-feed
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_3...ew?usp=sharing


    I found my terminal SNP this way. I knew I was L226 (based upon a smart project admin following my Y67), there was a Z253 pack which fully covered what was under L226, and I found I was exactly FGC5660 (and negative for everything underneath it - also important).

    There's an M222 SNP pack which drills down further for you. Ask whether this is appropriate for you.

    Good luck!

    Yes, prior to ordering the SNP Pack I was shown to be M-222, and I received an e-mail suggesting I take advantage of the "special offer."
    If you can afford it the Big Y is the best test for you. Do not waste money on any other tests. They will not resolve your YDNA Line.

    Thank you.

So I kept waiting for notification the testing was done since late July, but see today that it was completed 8/18 (no notification). I've previously been determined to be Y-DNA R-M222. Maybe the test wasn't right for me, maybe it was. I still don't know or understand. When I look at the SNP's on the descending lineage the lowest positive continues to be M-222 and at that point there's a solicitation to pay $119 for additional testing. I recall that we were told that if the test wasn't appropriate for us individually, after we paid and the results were in we wouldn't be charged. I'll have to look at my bank statement to see what happened. But I still don't know what I should be looking for, to determine if anything new is revealed. Sorry for being such a klutz with this stuff, but I've never fully understood the 'drilling down' into the DNA. Thanks for whatever "light" you can shed on my situation.

    In general, FTDNA should be able to use existing samples. If perchance the supply gets exhausted or "spoiled," FTDNA apparently now sends an email requesting postal address confirmation before sending out a new kit. You must respond to this email, otherwise--from what I've seen--your test order may be put into a "limbo" state.

    As an administrator, I dread that limbo state because it is almost impossible to track--the test no longer appears on the administrator's Pending Lab Results page. This situation is particularly alarming when the test was very expensive (e.g., the Big Y). In my project, I know that one Big Y order is in limbo, and I worry that others might be also.

    By the way: If you order anything more by September 5, try this coupon code:
    swede2015
    It appears to reduce by 15% the price of any purchase of $99 or more.

    There is another coupon that apparently reduces by $30 the price of any purchase of $149 or more:
    swede30

    R1b SNP sale: New Sample Required?

    I sponsored a kit for Y37, just got the results - R-M269. I'm wondering about the SNP sale - will he have to re-swab, or can they use the same sample?
    Also just ordered the upgrade to Y67 - can they use his same sample or will he have to re-swab? Thanks - new and overwhelmed - Copeland surname project -M Penrose

    If you haven't already ordered an individual SNP test for DF27 then the panel test could be useful for you. The WAHM is found in a wide variety of R1b subclades including U106 and P312 subclades and this test is a time and cost effecient way of covering the bases. Even if you have ordered DF27 it could still be useful, as the test includes some subclades of DF27 and there is no guarantee that you are DF27 anyway.
    If you are not L21 or U152 then you are DF27. You will have to wait for a DF27 SNP pack to see which subgroup you belong to.

    Do you always do what the group tells you? If you have already SNP tested then this test is not for you. The SNP packs that some groups are asking testers to wait for will not resolve your personal YDNA line. The only test that can do that is the Big Y. That is why I am waiting for the Big Y to come down in price.

    The R1b Backbone pack has gone up to $99, if anyone didn't already notice. This is still value for money for anyone who is predicted R1b from a Ydna 12,25,37 or 67 marker test. YSNPs are needed to confirm which branch of the R1b tree you are on.

    This new backbone test will help those who are DF27. DF27 is not included in the test but here are a number of subgroups under DF27. It seems that DF27 is a difficult SNP to test for so they best way to go is to bypass it.

    Invite all of the proposed test subjects to a barbecue. Make sure you give away a lot of free Guinness (or the preferred treat in Ireland).

    Offer to heavily subsidize a DNA test if they will participate.
