    I'm predicted M269 as many people are in Europe. I ordered R1b - M343&M269v2 Backbone SNP Pack. Did I buy the right pack?

    The results are very late as everything with FTDNA seems to be and I wait in anxiety for the results.

    In the meantime, can I from the STR results predict the SNP in any way?

    . Following, because I have the same question too.

      While I can't comment on the SNP pack, as I'm not very familiar with haplogroup R and all its subgroupings, I can comment on the fact that FTDNA is dealing with a rather large upgrade to their Big Y files and this has slowed a number of things down.

      Yes, you could predict to a degree using these webpages http://www.nevgen.org or http://members.bex.net/jtcullen515/haplotest.htm

      Keep in mind these websites won't necessarily be accurate for your specific Y-DNA. The SNP pack will be more accurate and a Big Y test would be even more precise.

        I think you should ask your project admin because they have knowledge about your subclade.

          That is the correct starter SNP pack for R-M269.

          As for asking in the R1B project, forget it unless you have at least 67 STR markers and Big Y or Geno2.

            Do your STR matches appear to be from the same specific haplogroup? For example if you are predicted R-M269 and you notice many matches are R-DF27, then you could be R-DF27 as well. This is not always correct if you are only looking at matches from lower STR levels like say Y25.
