  • R1 (undifferentiated) and U2

    All,
    Now that I have been tested and identified as R1 undifferentiated (not R1a or R1b) and U2, where can I go to find out more information on these male and female lineages? This is all very exciting to me and I can't wait to read/learn more about it.
    I also had a DNA Print completed and it showed me as 83% Indo-European and 17% East Asian. This minority admixture would seem to come from the "ancient affiliation with ethnic groups that are characterized by systematic admixture" source as described by Ancestry by DNA. Again, very interesting information. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Don Potter

    All,
    I stand corrected. I was not confirmed R1a by my SNP test and was positive for R1 (M173) so FTDNA ran the R1b test and I did show up as R1b (P25). That makes me R1b and U2e. The small e after the U2 denoting the European line vice the India line of U2.

      The Roper Genealogy websites helped me out alot:
      http://www.roperld.com/RoperGenetics.htm
      There's enough good links there to keep you busy awhile.

      Here's a list of books that might help as well:
      http://www.familytreedna.com/books.html

      Of those books, the Cavalli-Sforza's The History and Geography of Human Genes is the best, in my opinion. Spencer Wells' The Journey of Man might be helpful too. Then, there's some suggestion from Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...235377-4585720

      The first two of these books, at least, use the old system of naming haplotypes (i.e., HG1, HG2). At the bottom is a link that help's explain how these haplogroups were renamed. This would be helpful in understanding your haplotype in the context of these books.
