Genographic Project Geno 2.0
customers who tested positive for the M304 Y-SNP, please transfer your data (in Profile / Expert Options) for free to Family Tree DNA
, to your existing kit-number, or if you've never tested with FTDNA, create a new account and join this project. You'll be able to give and receive more information about your paternal lineage origin and roots in the Y-chromosome tree. We'd love to receive your downloaded Geno 2.0 raw data files, for our analysis of the Y-SNPs.
us to refine the tree, and to gather the evidence needed to include new SNPs as branches in the official ISOGG J tree
, by testing the SNPs suggested in the table Y-DNA results > Classic
(set Page Size to 2500) or by an Admin. One SNP will cost $39. Here's how to order:
We invite all members of the paternal Y-DNA haplogroup J, from anywhere in the world, to join
- Login to FTDNA (MyFTDNA) > Order an Upgrade > Order an Advanced Test > Select Filter Test Type SNP
- Search for recommended SNP (e.g. Z2220) and Add it to the cart. Repeat the last step for additional SNPs.
- Make your order clicking on Next, etc.
, and welcome all interested researchers. Our volunteer project with no commercial intentions has an inclusive, open access philosophy! Since 2006
we've encouraged everyone to freely share their Y-DNA
data for our common benefit (See also our Goals
). Please consider also donations
to support our work. With the recent discoveries of so many major SNPs, we need to test quite a few kits, and appreciate your generosity: please write your comments and wishes in the donation Note.
FAQ subgrouping/clustering: FAQ Markers
- Compare your haplotype to people of all surnames and ethnic groups, and from countries all over the world. This may allow you to gain insight into your family's early origins.
- Get assigned to a subgroup (cluster) based strictly on cluster analysis of marker values, and your SNP results. Ethnic labels on some subgroups are "after the fact" descriptions, not criteria for inclusion.
- Hear about the latest J-SNPs that are discovered, developed and that become available for ordering for members of the J haplogroup, with guidance on who will benefit by testing them.
- See your subgroup status updated according to the latest data analysis and SNP information available.
- You can help: if you see members of Haplogroup J show up in your surname, ethnic, or geographical project, or in Ysearch search results, etc., who are not members of the J-Haplogroup Project, please ask them to join! Especially if their haplotypes look unusual or different from others you've seen.

About the people doing the work for the Project:
- under 20 markers: rough clustering. Marker upgrade and/or Deepclade-SNP test is suggested. As of fall 2012 Geno 2.0 test ($199) replaces the old Deep Clade test ($129).
- 20 - 67 markers: basic to good clustering. Advanced SNP test is suggested.
- over 67 markers: advanced clustering. Advanced SNP test is suggested.
- Important J-Haplogroup SNPs: M304 (J), M267 (J1), M172 (J2), L136 (J1c), M410 (J2a), M102 (J2b), P58 (J1c3), L26 (J2a3), M241 (J2b2), L147.1 (J1c3d), M67 (J2a3b), L24 (J2a3h), L25 (J2a3h2), L70 (J2a3h2a1).
- Advanced SNP Tests are needed to refine deep clades and confirm nearest matches.
- To view all results, please set Page Size to 2500.
- Haplogroup J Nomenclature Systems: ISOGG J (genetic genealogy community); FTDNA Draft J tree (lab research director Thomas Krahn); YCC, Karafet et al 2008 J (academic publication, see also the FTDNA version for comparison with ISOGG).
- Phylogenetic tree overview: J1-M267 (by VictarM), J2a-M410 xL24,M67 (by ChrisR) Forum, J2a-L24 (by LudmillaR), J2b-M102 (by VinceT).
All the current Volunteer Group Administrators have begun with a simple private DNA-Test and eventually step by step have become Y-DNA Haplogroup-J experts by passion. They are not paid by FTDNA or others and do all the work in their free time.
