  • Which SNP pack...

    I'm thinking about doing an SNP pack with FTDNA. Seeing as I have not done any with FTDNA, they recommend "R1b - M343&M269v2 Backbone SNP Pack"
    I have tested with Helix (not transferable) and they have me as SRY2627 which is deeper and part of FTDNA's "R1b - Z198 SNP Pack"
    Should I forgo the M343 and just go with the Z198? I don't have a lot of confidence with anything from Helix, but I doubt they got this wrong, or could they have?

    Anything is possible. Probability is another matter.

    You're probably safe enough skipping the lower level test and grabbing the SNP Pack which covers the Z198 portion of the R-1b tree, as that is where you've previously had a positive result.
