About us

TO JOIN THIS GROUP YOU MUST SEND A JOIN REQUEST FROM YOUR PERSONAL PAGE. It is not possible to join this group until after you have received your Y-DNA test results.

On your FTDNA Dashboard page (the landing page when you log in) click on the Projects menu head in the upper left part of the page, then click on "Join a Project." When the next screen opens up, click on R in the Y-Haplogroup Section. In the next screen, click on R-M222. Then on the next page click on the Join Request button. Please include your FTDNA kit number or your Ysearch record ID so that the Project Administrators have a chance to inspect your haplotype and confirm that you are an actual or likely member of Haplogroup R-M222.

The R-M222 and Subclades project is open to all individuals who have a derived (i.e., positive) test result on the SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) called M222 or for any of the numerous known SNPs that lie downstream from M222. Also welcome are individuals without SNP results whose haplotypes conform to the R-M222 and Subclades modal haplotype. If in doubt, please contact a project administrator. Click on the Background link in the menu bar above for further information about the scope of the project.
