Are you a member of the G-U1 Y-DNA project?
Carl Frederick Carl Frederick has a question!
April 10 @ 10:36am
FTDNA has found a match for me on my paternal side. I am Haplo G-U1but the match is Haplo I-M170. The match is 0 distance from me. The match is no longer available at his email address so I may never find any info from him. My question is how is this possible?

Carl, the match you refer to is GD 0 match at 12 markers which illustrates the low value to be placed upon 12 markers for genealogical work. You agree at 12 markers perfectly, but your markers diverge as you add markers. He does not appear as a match for you at either 25 or 37 markers so the differences exceed 2 at 25 and 4 at 37. Actually, you have 20 matches in total at 12 markers and only 4 are haplogroup G and 16 are haplogroup I. Generally, you should start looking for genealogical significance of matches at 37 markers or above. -- Roy

Roy - when reading the Big Y will i find matches to other HGs? Insignificant, but how could this be? As I learn about HG G i am almost impressed that it has survived in the big picture. Does it mutate “easier” than other groups?

Carl - the Big Y considers hundreds of STR markers and works to define your real terminal haplogroup, so any Big Y matches you have will be close neighbors to you in the genetic tree, certainly within the broad haplogroup G. With regard to your second question, I haven't seen any statistics on relative probability of mutation in the various haplogroups, so I cannot comment on that. -- Roy

Did anyone test MyTrueancestry site? Did the site give any real information or just for fun?

Hi John, does MyTrueancestry specify which are the SNP number of G2 from Crypta Balbi, Rome and Villa Magna, Rome? In one of these studies haplogroup X was found in Vagnari Italy during the Imperial Roman period. Haplogroup X is my mitocondrial DNA.

Hi, Claude. Yes. My Crypta Balbi match is R55 and Villa Magna is 108, both G2. I am not certain how to upload to these posts or I would.

It is curious you both are in Northern Italy per above, likewise myself, Martin, and Martinez are between you.

Bonjour Alain, Ray, Roy et tous les membres du projet. Je viens de commander un Big Y-700, j'espère pouvoir contribuer à faire avancer l'étude ADN Y G-U1 et notamment G FGC21495. Bonne journée.

Jean-Guy KAUFFMANN, thanks for helping to advance the G-U1 haplotree! I look forward to seeing your Big Y result. --Regards, Roy
Warren Frederick Warren Frederick has a question!
February 11 @ 4:44pm
Roy -- I am a sibling of Carl Frederick. You indicate Carl has a large number of variances. Must I do the Big-Y to prove those variances are in my family? or they are variances that confused G and Big-Y only for my brother.

Warren, I apologize for not responding sooner to your question. I have not been able to spend much time on the activity feed for the project. As I explained to Carl via email, his 42 private variants are unique among FTDNA testers at this point. It is quite likely that any full sibling of Carl will share most of those private variants with him. If so and if a Big Y test was taken, then those shared private variants would be given names and placed on the official haplotree. This would create a new branch below your current haplogroup G-Z44222 that would be for all practical purposes a family clade for you and your siblings. In any case, it will further the knowledge we have in your section of the haplotree. A Big Y test by a close relative is the most direct way to turn these private variants into named SNPs, but you won't immediately know more about how you relate to other project members because you will still be separated from them by a large number of named variants. In this case, it generally will require a Big Y test by a close relative of Carl, plus a Big Y from a more distant relative (e.g., third or fourth cousin) to create some branching. Another alternative is to simply wait for others to test hoping they will eventually share some of those private variants with Carl, but often that can be a long wait. --Regards, Roy

G Tribe (academic research collective) is basically saying Hap G is rooted in the Saracens of the Sinai, NW Arabia, etc. Note, this is a specific historical group, not the broader term of the middle ages. This is interesting for our subgroup, as in 672 AD 60,000-80,000 Saracens were defeated in Tours, France, by Charles Martel. https://www.facebook.com/GM201Haplogroup/

An update on the L1263 part of the tree. Mr George's result indicate he is negative for Z38856 which was previously shared by all Z38846 testers. This therefore now becomes an intermediate subgroup for which only Mr George is negative

Dear Alain, thank you for the updated G-U1 status diagram, it is very informative, including its dynamics in time. I can only imagine how much work is underlying it. Do you think that there are enough samples to report the individual Balkan countries in future?
Alain Verschaeren
September 17, 2018 @ 4:42pm
We only have a few Balkan samples, but in future as we identify subgroups closer to the present day we should be able to get a bit more precise

Alain, As a positive member of Z38856, but Negative on both Z38853 and Z43938; has anything new developed this last year for the above chart? ie. does Z38856 have any additional subgroups to test for? Thanks!
Alain Verschaeren
November 18 @ 2:49pm
Hi Byron, there have been quite a few (8 according to the ISOGG tree) people with Z38856* tests but so far no new confirmed subgroups (as in, more than one person sharing a mutation) have been identified. https://isogg.org/tree/index.html

Eero Jukola poi mi dice che tra gli scheletri antichi a cui è stato fatto il test del dna, ci sono questi evidenziati in rosso che si avvicinano più di tutti al mio dna. La distanza genetica misura quanto sei vicino a un determinato campione. 10 significa che questa è la tua antenata antica 20 significa che questo fa parte del tuo collegamento ancestrale 30 significa possibilmente correlato ai tuoi antenati
