    You will be tested for a set of SNPs and told which you are positive for and which you are negative for. The ones, if any, you are positive for define your haplogroup and perhaps sub-haplogroup.

    M458 is fairly common in Eastern Europe, particularly the West Slavic countries, but it is ordered through the Advanced menu, not the Deep Clade.

    If you create a Ysearch entry with your marker values, we can give you more specific advice.

    I have tested with FTDNA .I am U106 and negative for L48 and three other subgroups as well.On my haplotree page there aren't any other tests available. There aren't many people from Ireland with Irish names within that group at the moment. Perhaps a lot of people that have tested already, haven't been deep clade tested.
    I am not taking any more tests until I find someone with the same haplotype.

    The chances of getting negative results are fairly high, but can be mitigated somewhat by the right choices of test.

    A few questions ...

    Are you testing with FTDNA?

    What are your test results to date?

    Mine are: L1- L47- L48+ L148- P107- U106+ U198-

    Because I am U106, I joined the S21/U106 project and the leadership of that group, which keeps itself up to date on developments below U106, has been suggesting which tests I take and in what sequence. At the moment I am at L48 and holding until a new downstream SNP is discovered. I tested for L47 and L148 when they emerged, but as you see I was negative for both, so there was no point in testing for L44, L45, L46 and L164.

    I may be accepted for the WTY test since I am one of the few from Ireland who has been tested.The only thing is I would like to keep the results private.Is that possible?
    See slide #7 for the goals of the project. You'll note some reference to public and private choice, as well as the preference for "public groups of well selected individuals":

    http://www.dna-fingerprint.com/stati...lkThroughY.pdf

    I don't know what the selection criteria are in terms of any "quirks" in a candidate's haplotype and SNP tests already taken, nor whether they are still accepting applications.

    To which haplogroup and subclade do you belong?

    It really all depends on how you define Celtic or Germanic. I am inclined to define P312 as the highest node for Celtic & P312's brother, U106 as the highest node for proto-Celts that became German.

    The German language, as well as German y-DNA suggests that Germans are a blend of three major populations:

    1. a R1b, centum speaking portion that some would call Celtic.

    2. a R1a, satem speaking portion that some would call Slavic.

    3. an I1, aboriginal prtion that was non-Indo European

    If you strip away the Celtic portion & the Slavic portion, because "they can't really be German", you are left with a non-IndoEuropean base. And that clearly runs contrary to common sense.

    Some people think that Austria is the place of origin of U106. Isn't that were the Hallstat culture originated? L48 is downstream of U106. Are you saying the Anglo-Saxons were descended from the Celts? I thought Germany was another Celtic country.

    My Y-Haplogroup: R1a*

    Point taken, and I have commented elsewhere that it would help if these databases provided an additional field to origin which denoted the status of the value entered, as either "documented" or "likely". I know there would be debate about the definition of "documented", but if the default value were to be "likely" then chances are most people without good documentation would go with that.

    I think the current vogue is to try to prove you're Viking.

    And, of course, the question of reliability of what's stated in these origin fields isn't limited to those who enter "Ireland".
