E-M44 (originally known as E1a1) is below E-M96. The tree to M44 is E-M96> P147> M132> Z965> M44 Membership requirements: Males who are YDNA tested and who wish to explore their origins. Typically they will show STR markers DYS391=9 and/or DYS392=12. If you do not have those STRs, you must test POSITIVE for E-M44 before joining. YOU WILL BE REJECTED IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS. Our project is listed at the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) YDNA haplogroup index page.
