  • Geno 2.0 and FTDNA giving very different results

    My father took the Geno 2.0 test and had it imported to FTDNA. Geno 2.0 says my father is R-DF21 while FTDNA shows him as R-L148. R-DF21 is a subclade of R-L21 (under R-DF13). You can see a nice tree here:

    Since he cannot be in both haplogroups at the same time, which one is the correct one? Kit number N117567.


    EDIT: After posting, I figured I should also send this to customer support, so I have.

    Biological or not makes no difference to me, I have an older brother who is adopted and he is no less my brother and no less my father's son, but it does matter for medical history and genealogy purposes.

        I found kit N117567 in the R1b-L48+ Project. The list of SNP results (transferred from Geno 2.0) is all goofed up. Morley's analyzer puts him in haplogroup J2, but with a long list of "extra" SNPs from all different haplogroups.

        I suggest that you:
        1) Download the raw data file from Geno 2.0, and have an R1b expert analyze it to verify that it is a valid DF21+ .
        2) Then inform FTDNA that the transfer (from Geno 2.0 into his account) was botched.

          cybrsage,

          FTDNA has a dedicated Customer Support team who work very hard to keep up with both phone calls and email.

          It may take 2-3 days for the team to reach your email in the queue. Once they do reach your email, they'll respond to you and work to resolve the issue.

            Thanks Elise

            Michelle and I have the situation under control. :-)

              When I had it imported it matched the results on the Genographic Project's website. As it turns out, National Geographic just recently sent out an email saying they botched up a ton of results. They made the changes to the results but did not say what those changes were. I had FTDNA remove all the imported data and I had it reimported and now my father and I are in the same haplotype group.

              As one can easily surmise, this caused a lot of drama in my family during the months they had been confident there was no mistake. It also caused me to buy a lot of additional testing that was actually not needed (the results of which I do not have yet). As I said, I was not really all the bothered but the rest of the family was in an uproar over it. My mother passed away 2 years ago so any info from here was not able to be found, but it is well known she was not very faithful - which added credence to initial results.

              Anyone who has had any Geno 2.0 testing done should check their results closely. Hopefully they found all their mistakes and contacted everyone.
