Hello everyone! I manage this kit for my father, who is a G-S2808. His oldest known ancestry is in the UK. Are there any theories as to which migration, period, or group carried this haplogroup into England? Thank you all.

You should notice that Ftdna normally only quotes performed tests. If you only have performed Y-tests in most cases a high level will be stated. If you have performed a SNP-test this test is stated if positive. Tests at other companies are not considered by Ftdna. Hoewever, we Administrators are free to classify you according to all test results. We try to allocate you the lowest predictable subclade in our roaster based on all available test information.

I apologize for misreading "farther" as "father", however, your clarification and your attention to defining said subject matter made clear what you were asking. Thanks Gary

My paternal 67 test says G-S-2808, and my father's paper trace leads back to southern Sweden, to the beginning of the 1700s (they seemed to have stayed put in the same place since, and probably before). That's how far back I am, and probably can get when it comes to paper research. Someone talked about a connection to the British Islands about thousand years ago, but I "am not able to read the numbers", or interpret this. Can someone please refer me further; articles to read, or how to understand this, or even tell me about the migration of this line. And would additional testing bring me any farther? Thanks Maria

Hello Maria. I think we had some conversation long ago. Anyway, looking at your father’s result he matches closely one member. To find out more of his ancient origin the test Big700 could help. The result will show where in the DNA tree he Will have his connection point to others. Either he or the other member could perform the test. If you both agree you two could share the cost for the test.

Hello Admins, I was also looking for the most recent version of the C1 C2 chart. I can't seem to locate it here. Thank you

Good Sir, I did a lot of research before I chose Family Tree DNA. Orin Wells was still working for Ancestry and urged me to use Ancestry. He now works for Family Tree. I did not choose by cost but rather by their professional reputation and the quality of service offered. Price! I know there are less costly facilities available. FTDNA has been around for a long time. I believe that is because Family Tree acquired the best people money can buy, also should one have quality professionals in ones service one would take good care of them to retain said people and as such the equipment they use for the analysis of your DNA sample and the people who maintain that equipment would also follow this line. My price for the Big 700, less the cost of the original 111 Y, total cash out lay $238. Good Hunting, Gary

As stated several times Kristian belong to my own group Z39673. However, we are not sure to which of six defined subbranches he belongs.The origin of his ancestor is southwest of Sweden some 1000-1200 years back.. There is also an English branch with a genetic distance of abt. 1200-1400 years back.

DYX 371 is a process which requires a specific light spectrum to identify the alleles at DYS 425 and is preformed on DYS 425 NULL only.

This is to correct my error: The correct DNA analysis is DYF371X advanced marker not DYX 371. Please accept my apologies the error. Gary

This is a new chart of the G-FGC809 branch under G-L497. A pdf version can be found at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YyBG317gG4tWvj513LumlatNTY27rZB2 . The upper part of the L497 SNP chart is posted above. Charts for SNPs under G-L43, G-CTS4803 and G-Z16775 will be posted in the near future.

Hello Rolf, I hope you’re well. I see that there may be a revised Chart A in the making. I look forward to reviewing it! Many thanks.

I'm a G-S2808. My paterna ancestors are from Dumfries-shire, Scotland. How common is this subgroup?

G-S2808 is one of most common subbranches within G-L497. Also please note that in most cases the migration is older than the surname introduction. Common geographic areas and assumed routes are in many cases more important than a common surname.

I am a subset of S2808 (S18675,L667) from Switzerland. G is rare to begin withbut as Rolf said, S2808 is well represented amongst G... I assume because we his in the Alps when the R hordes invaded :).

What makes you assume they “hid” instead of assimilate? If they hid, they would have been concentrated in one particular area. The distribution of S2808 outside of the Alps cannot only be accredited to fairly “recent” migrations. It also does not explain why G-L497 in general is the most common G2a in Europe compared to for example G-L91.

The vast majority of the surviving fraction of G-L497 lived in the Alp region some 4000 ybp. This fraction was likely too small for a migration of its own. It must, as Roberts quotes, have been assimilation with other groups. Still in very many cases in our charts we have a gap between say 3000 and 1500 ybp in order to evaluate when migration took place. Statistically for many reasons only very few strict male lines will survive over e g 3000 years.

Tested Big Y 700. It is supposedly done but I get the same message every time I log in. (Haplogroup predictions are currently being updated using new data. Your haplogroup prediction may change upon completion. ) How long does it take to do this?

the message on the top of the web site is generic. under myDNA : Big Y : Block tree is there a result?

Yes, didn't know the message meant nothing. Thank you.

Rolf would there be a way to provide permanent links on the left hand side this web page to the most current charts you have made? They are terrific, graphic depictions for the L497 trees. I appreciate all of the work of the admn and co-admins' !

My big-Y came in, not sure what I'm learning out of this yet. Other than there are no matches but that's not a surprise. Kit 914823
