  • Haplogroups

    Hi.
    If you know for a fact that you are definitely related to someone but they are one or two markers off of a perfect match; would they always have the exact same haplogroup as you? (And I mean the exact same haplogroup after getting tested).

    Yes, if two men have a common paternal line ancestor in a relatively short timeframe, say the last few generations, then they must have the same haplogroup. The only exception would be if one of the paternal lines had a SNP of its own since the common ancestor. This would probably not even be known, since the SNP would be undiscovered.

    It seems as if you're fretting that there isn't a 37/37 or 67/67 match between two men known to be related. Don't worry about it - mutations happen. It's quite within the realm of probability for two men men related in a genealogical timeframe to have one or two mismatches.

      Yeah,

      I believe this scenario is within the realm of Stevo's testing between he and his son.
