  • Can anyone help me understand my Y-DNA results?

    Hi,

    So, I got my Y-DNA 67 markers plus mtDNA test done, and I would like to know if anyone could help me understanding my results. I got R1b1b2/R-M269, and I calculated some of the mutation matches on the HaploTree, here it goes (some of these I did out of curiosity, by the way):

    1. England: 163 matches
    2. Scotland: 154 matches
    3. Ireland: 82 matches
    4. Germany: 68 matches
    5. Spain: 43 matches
    6. France: 33 matches
    7. Sweden: 15 matches
    8. Italy: 14 matches
    9. Denmark: 12 matches
    10. Poland: 10 matches
    11. Switzerland: 10 matches
    12. Wales: 9 matches
    13. Iceland: 5 matches
    14. Norway: 5 matches
    15. Hungary: 4 matches
    16, Russia: 4 matches
    17. Portugal: 4 matches
    18. Indonesia: 4 matches
    19. Native American: 3 matches
    20. Uyghur: 2 matches
    21. Iran: 2 matches

    I would like to know if the mutation matches means that I have ancestry from these regions, I am specially interested in the Uyghur (which was R1b1), Indonesian (M1a) and Native American results (Q1a3a).

    Thanks,
    - Erick

    For starters, ignore any "match" that doesn't exactly match your known haplogroup. Then order the SNP test(s) you need to determine your exact subclade. If you haven't already done so, you should also join whatever projects you'd like, starting with the suggested ones on your personal homepage, especially those associated with your haplogroup.

      When you say SNP, you mean the DYS values right?

      Also according to ySearch (did not test the deep sub-clade R yet), I am R1b1b2a1b4c I think (through analysis with other matches).

        Hi,

        If your YDNA is R1b1b2/R-M269, then your matches would be R1b1b2/R-M269. You're not related along your YDNA line to Q1a3a or M1a.
        If you are looking for ethnic admixture, then that is a different type of dna test that FTDNA doesn't do.

          I see, so these are more like statistics, showing people who have similarities to me right?

            No, SNPs determine subclades -they're completely different than the DYS values. But if you're getting a lot of matches on ySearch that belong in the particular subclade you cited, then there's a possibility that you belong to it based on haplotype similarity (DYS values). However, you won't know for sure unless you have the SNP tests you need.

              I see. I am calculating now the pure (meaning R1b1b2 only) matches, and the picture is not so different from the other one:

              1. Unknown Origin: 113 matches
              2. England: 54 matches
              3. Scotland: 28 matches
              4. Germany: 24 matches
              5. Spain: 20 matches
              6. United Kingdom: 12 matches
              7. Portugal: 2 matches
              8. Wales: 2 matches
              9. Austria-Hungary: 1 match
              10. Yugoslavia: 1 match

              I specially wanted to know the European subculture I come from, I think it is what people would call Anglo-Celt.

                R1b is a huge haplogroup with many subclades. If you haven't already, take a look at this article:

                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1b_%28Y-DNA%29

                As Vinne said above, you need to be deep clade tested to confirm what you are. There are various claims about Celtic this and Celtic that. As far as I know, when it comes to a Celtic haplogroup, nobody knows anything for sure ... yet.
