    The National Geographic Lebanon project reported a fair percentage of R1b1 in Lebanon. They concluded that it was probably from the Crusades.

    I had a mitosearch match with someone in Lebanon. Mtdna H1 16519c.

    What does this tell me? Isn't R1b1b2 a European haplogroup? Do I need to wait now for new mutations to be discovered to see where he fits? Does that mean retesting? Is this unusual? I appreciate any insight you can give.
    Thank you.
    R1b1b2 is not strictly European. Lebanon is not a surprise. There are some who believe this haplogroup originated not far from there - perhaps in eastern Turkey or Armenia. Anyway, I'm not sure if FTDNA's standard deep clade package includes rs34276300 yet, but if he hasn't had that one I'd recommend it. This SNP roughly separates R1b1b2 into the western European "Atlantic" varieties and the eastern varieties.
