UPPDATED MAY 2018: Hello! I Will introduce myself. My name is Charlotte but I was born in Bangkok 1975. My name was then Somsri Suwanmaneekul. (According to My papers mothers familyname Kunukul). I was abandonned at hospital and adopted to Sweden. Today - exactly 4 years ago - the 7/1 2014 i started to search for My relatives. -kul is a chinese end of names I have learnt. I have after long search and 16 return trips to Thailand and many dna test learnt that My relatives name is Suwanmaneekul. I tracked some of my relatives to Chiang Rai. They have roots in Sipsongpanna in Yunnan province in china and also in Nakhon Sakhon province, before that Vietnam. I dont know who is my father or mother. All I know is: My mtdna is R9b1a2b. (Updated!) Anyone Else with R9b group? Or from that region? please comment.

Branch: R9 Age: 47,200 ± 12,350 Years Ago Location of Origin: Southeast Asia This woman belonged to a group of coastal travelers who settled much of Southeast Asia. Thus, this lineage is most common in Indonesia and Malaysia. However, some from this group continued along the coast of mainland East Asia and then migrated inland to settle much of modern China.

Hi, I recently found out that FTDNA had refined the resolution of my Y-haplogroup from O-F18 to O-F646. I was wondering if there's any information about the more specific category of O-F646, since it seems to be fairly recently added, so it's hard to find anything on Google that mentions it.

Thank you, though I was wondering more if there are any articles or thorough investigations into the category. It's hard for me to pinpoint due to probable uncertainty in DNA autosomal ancestry assessments of companies. For instance, MyHeritage is the only company that has population specific estimates, and for both me and my brother we are shown somewhere between 1-2% Japanese and 1-2% Inuit ancestry each, but no Chinese or Mongol ancestry, even though the company does have those specific population categories. Yfull seems to link my paternal haplogroup to Han Chinese regions though. But rather than Chinese, MyHeritage makes Japanese ancestry estimates for me and my brother. Difficult to make any sense of it since we are Turks from Bulgaria. Our paternal great great grandfather came from Central Turkey during the 19th century. And as far as we know, our forefathers were all from either the Balkans or Anatolia for the past two centuries.

Do you got the results from or FTDNA Family Finder My Origins 2,0? My FF My Origins results are 70% Southeast Asian + 30% Northeast Asian. :-)

My name is Grantrussel from Indonesia. My Y DNA belongs to Haplogroup O-CTS4960 / O2-M117. I don't know much about subbrances O-CTS4960. Can someone tell me about this Haplogroup?

February 25 @ 6:45pm
Thanks, M Sastrosudharmo. But my mtDNA belongs to Haplogroup M8a3a which my Cousins told when this Haplogroup are more common in Northeast Asia and Central Asia like Kazakhstan, Mongolia, East Siberian, etc. In fact my Great Grandmother were from Beijing. Dan you tell me about this?

February 25 @ 6:52pm
Oh, from my FTDNA FF MyOrigines 2,0 i have 70% Southeast Asian + 30% Northeast Asian. From my DNA Land, i have 70% Central Chinese + 30% Southeast Asian (20% Vietnamese, Chinese Dai and 10% Native Taiwanese - Amis People). And from MyHeritage, i have 98% Chinese and Vietnam + 2% Filipina, Malaysian and Indonesian.

Beijing is capital of China (modern and historical). So just like any capital in any civilization, many people from whole China came and settled there. So you can find any Haplogroup in Beijing. And about M8a3a, it's found among Central Asian and Northeast Asian.

My Cousin's Father Mitocondrial DNA belongs to Haplogroup M7c1c3 / M7c3c. This is a Chinese Haplogroup? And based from FF My Origins 2,0 he have 76% Southeast Asian and 24% Northeast Asian.

Hi guys, not too sure how to interpret my Y-37 results

Hello my friend. You can email me at and I may be able to help you out, as I had mine tested in June and the results came back in August. Then in November I had my Y-DNA 111 tested and I can tell you about that. Phil

Hello Ang Kok Han, your Y haplogroup was predicted as F869 per your 37str: F869 is a subgroup under Page23, see isogg O tree: F869 has high frequency in south China.

If your alleles for the thirty-seven Loci match another person exactly, then you share the same Haplotype.

Hello everyone, it has been some time now since I joined the group in September, so I thought I would update you all on what I have been doing. In order to try and find out more information regarding my being Australian, but also having had my Y-DNA 37 as well as the 111, plus the MyHeritage DNA tested I decided to upload my Y-DNA full 111 to Gedmatch and her are 2 numbers (both have the same results), in case 1 doesn't work to let you view my results. I have just ordered the DNA today as well to see if I can also find more Cousins. Here are the numbers T826291 plus H095789.

Hello Mikhail, thank you my friend. I must apologise for the terrible photo of me I only have 5% vision remaining in both eyes, so any glare from strong lighting or the sun, makes my eyes water so I struggle to keep them open, so when the flash from the camera went off, it was like having a knife in my eyes. Take care Mikhail

I joined the group because my mother, late Ruth Austin, scored 3rd (actually tied with 2nd) on her DNATribes test for Miao of Guangxi, China. I dont' know if my mystery great-great grandfather came over during the Taiping Rebellion or if he was descended from one of Zheng He explorer's crew. Are there reliable Chinese DNA testing companies? Maybe I can narrow it down if I have third or fourth cousins. Thanks.

Hi, Are there any other testing companies (in China perhaps) with which Chinese folks are more likely to test? We've tested with FTDNA and 23andme and we have very few Asian matches. I got involved with DNA testing because we do not know who my father's biological father is. My father is 50% Chinese so it's pretty obvious that not a lot (relatively speaking) of Chinese people are testing with American companies. Otherwise he would have more matches.

Gang Liu, in my understanding from that thread, the Fudan autosomal only test about 10000 markers. That's enough for admixture analysis, but obviously can't be use in matching process. Even Geno 2.0 (about 130000 autosomal markers) was not enough to matching purpose. The current Geno test (Geno 2.0 NG) is testing more than 750000 autosomal markers.
