The goals of the R1b-L21 & R1b-Z290 and Subclades project are to encourage deeper DNA testing to support deeper understanding of the origins and migrations of our male lineages, as R1b-L21 & Z290 people, while helping individuals find family paternal lineages and deep ancestral origins.
The research done within the project is available as a "system of record". The subgroupings are based on validated SNP results from the Y DNA SNP results page so anyone can review and challenge subgrouping assignments, retest, etc.
These project web pages and the project in general are geared towards genetic genealogy as a hobby and should not be considered a platform for forensic, legal or academic research. FTDNA policies apply.
