J1 Y-DNA Project- Background
Welcome to the J1 Y-DNA Project!
Y-DNA haplogroup J1, defined by the SNP mutation M267, is estimated to be approximately 16 thousand years old and is thought to have originated somewhere between Anatolia and Mesopotamia.
The goals of this project are to help project members understand their results and guide them in further testing, and advance the phylogeny of J1.

Please transfer your Geno 2.0 results to FTDNA. Click here for instructions.
If you wouldn't mind, please include a link to the J1 Project in your Geno 2.0 paternal story to encourage other J1s to transfer their results to FTDNA and join the J1 Project. Thanks! http://www.familytreedna.com/public/J-M267/
The J1 Project is partnered with the following J1 subclade projects.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does FTDNA tell me my terminal SNP is one thing, ex. J-L147.1, but the cluster I'm in says something different?
The reason is because we can predict a deeper terminal SNP using your STR markers though phylogenetic analysis. It's recommended that order your predicted SNP to confirm.

How are the clusters generated in this project?
The clusters in this project are based on the latest J1 phylogenetic tree by Marko Heinila, which can be found here. They are generated using probability calculations and are not based on religious or cultural affiliation, nor are they absolute in any way until defined by a SNP.
I was recommended to test for a SNP, but I don't see it on the FTDNA order page. Where can I order it?
- Login to your myFTDNA account. (https://www.familytreedna.com/login.aspx)
- Click Order Upgrade on the menu bar.
- Click on Order an Advanced Test .
- Select SNP from the Test Type drop-down menu.
- Enter the name of the SNP in the Marker field and click Find.
- Click Add to the right of the SNP.
- Click the Next and proceed to the payment page.
Note: If they SNP you would like to order begins with YSC, you will need to order it using its longhand name, which totals in 10 characters, ex. YSC0000076 and not YSC76.
The cluster I'm in reads "advanced analysis required". What does that mean?
I've transferred my results from Geno 2.0 to Family Tree DNA but I don't see my kit in the Y-DNA results chart. Why is that?
How can I contact another kit owner within the project?
If the kit isn't in your matches, you can email us and we'll pass along your message to them.
