FTDNA just released an amazing number of new SNPs and newly defined subclades. Under my Y5992 clade, there were until today 3 subclades defined: i) Y5977, with no subclades under it: 9 samples from Russia and 1 sample from Kazakhstan; ii) KMS45, with no subclades under it: 2 samples from Spain and 1 sample from Poland; and iii) Y5992*: 1 sample from Belgium. This is how those three Y5992 subclades are now defined: i) Y5977 has 3 NEW subclades under it: Y39657: with 2 samples from Russia, BY100683: with 1 sample from Russia and 1 sample from Kazakhstan; and Y5977*: with the remaining 6 samples from Russia; ii) KMS45 has 2 NEW subclades under it: KMS36: with 2 samples from Spain, and KMS45*: with 1 sample from Poland; and iii) Y5992*: with 1 sample from Belgium. Good improvements, indeed. The only thing not yet implemented is the ability to contact all samples from parent SNPs, like in YFull.

Hi there ! My name is Gasnier, before it was Garnier. Before Garnier it was Warnier... In Belgium, there's a lot a of Warnier. Is there a Warnier with his haplogroup J2 like me ?

Je ne connaissais pas l'histoire de Warnachaire II. C'est intéressant. On devrait pouvoir retrouver son nom dans "l'Histoire des Francs" de Grégoire de Tours : le livre est en lecture publique sur Google Books :

J'ai déjà le livre de Greg de Tours. Mais je nage dans l'analyse des patronymes spécifiquement sur les Garnier et Warnier. Bien à mon avis, ils avaient le même ancêtre commun au temps des Francs. Mais Ce nom Warnier, est-ce que c'est un Franc Salien ou ripuaire Rhénan puisque c'est un nom germanique ?

The return from DNA to the Levant can also be caused by crusaders from Western Europe going to fight in the Middle East in the middle ages

The Kyjatice culture is between -1000 BC and -700 BC before the Christ. From the Crusaders, it is after 1095.

Looking for the man from Belgium with terminal SNP R-Y5992, a 2,000-year old cousin of the men from Russia and Kazakhstan in Y5977 and the men from Spain and Poland in branch KMS45.

Dear All, my Y-DNA belongs to the haplogroup R1a, the euroasian Z2123 branch, under sub-branch Y5992. I just saw in my BigY Block Tree that there is a man from Belgium who has just been identified also as Y5992. Since FTDNA does not allow contacting matches unless your SNP distance is below 30, I was wondering whether that man may have joined this FTDNA group. He is perhaps the "Mertens" identified as Z2123 that may have not been updated after he took the BigY. If Mertens is indeed the Y5992 man, please contact me and/or send your BAM file to YFull for analysis. I have been collecting a lot of information on the origins of branch Y7094 ( and it would be wonderful if we could expand our knowledge on it. Branch Y5992 was formed circa 2,700 years ago and it is currently composed of men from the Ryazan, Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, and Chelyabinsk russian republics (child branch Y5977) and men from Asturias, in the north of Spain (child branch KMS45), both branches sharing a common ancestor born circa 1,950 years ago. There is also a man from Poland and a man from Belgium under Y5992 that we are trying to contact. So, please, come forward or send your BAM file to YFull. Thanks!

Beste, ik heb bij jullie een match (Y-DNA) met een zekere captein Antoine Floris met een genetische afstand van 2? Wat moet ik me bij deze voorstellen?

How many markers for your match? Does their tree have matches to your family? Do they match in Family Finder?

To Admin's: Just received my Big Y 700 results and am R-BY70198. I see this is reflected on your colorized chart. Still have a long way to go in understanding these results. One hell of a learning curve !!!! Wil try to upload to relevant sites. Got my raw data submitted to Williamson. I am in the guest section, non Benelux.

Hi Maurice, have you joined the Sherman Project, as your terminal SNP matches a record there for Henry of Dedham, Essex 1510 there. The other SNP's attributed to Henry there are R-M269, upstream of R-BY70198. Wikipedia has info on R-M269, and shows a tree of sub-clades. If you follow your terminal SNP back though the FTDNA Haplotree and compare the "L" SNP's you will M269/L53/L21 taking you down a branch for Brittany, Ireland, Scotland, Wales.

My grandmother, Julia Yvonne DuPont, (nee Paris 1901and died in US 1970) was the daughter of Jeanne Anna Schreiber (nee Elle, Luxembourg) and Alexandre Leon DuPont, nee Belgique. Interested in learning more about these families.
