Hi! I did the basic FTDNA test. Do I need something more to participate in this group? I've tested with 23&Me & have uploaded my info to WeGene as well. I'm int'l adopted and have no birth parent info except that I was adopted from ShanXi. 23&Me gives a lot better breakdown.

On Family Tree DNA site I have Autosomal results and also YDNA and MtDNA test results. In my matches I only have autosomal matches and none of them match YDNA or MtDNA results. I even have one X-match that doesn't have MTDNA matches. Does this mean none of them are really directly related to me? How is this possible?

That kind of situation is not impossible. Y-DNA or mtDNA only trace one line on your ancestry. So in 7 generations above you have 128 ancestors (64 males and 64 females), the Y-DNA only trace to one of those male ancestors and mtDNA only trace to one of those female ancestors. Autosomal DNA trace to all relatives who came from those all ancestors. Of course within some limitation. More than 7 generations the autosomal matching algorithm is not really convincing. So some of your autosomal matches maybe are genuine matches but they just didn't share ancestors with you through the 2 people that you got mtDNA and Y-DNA from. They maybe connect to you from the other 126 ancestors.

Anyone know where I can find information on the net for markers, O-F871 and O-F1903? My Markers: O-M175->M122->P164->F871-F1903 Haplogroup: O2a2b2a2 Herb Email:

You likely belong to haplogroup O2a2b2a2b AM01847/B451, AM01761/SK1787, AM01781/S18967/SK1786, AM01798/SK1788 do your paternal have Philippine ancestry?

Took the BigY and my most recent terminal marker is O-A16427, which is O2a2b2a2bc according to ISOGG 2018. YFull shows my terminal marker as

O2a2b2a2b A16139, which is an equivalent marker.

Dropping in here in to gather some insights about how I can try to build my family tree on my dad's side. When my Ancestry results came back I discovered that I'm basically 50/50 Anglosaxon and Chinese. My challenge is that I want to build my family tree on my paternal side but because I'm an NPE I have no idea who my father is and no one else does either. I'd sure appreciate help from anyone.

Interesting as I too am a Y-NPE and a Eurasian with 49% Southeast Asian, but according to Wegene Taiwanese/Southern Han.

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.

As an aide it doesn't appear that genealogy is a feature of any of the Chinese-based DNA sites. That's too bad as that's my specific interest.

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.

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?
Grant Suherman
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.

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.
