For those of you whom have also done the Family Finder DNA test.
Under your Family Finder results is a clickable link, Advanced Matches, click on that link.
Then check marker Family Finder and then click on Run Report.
Now that you are in that Advanced Family Finder report, you will see your matches have both their Y DNA or mtDNA Haplogroup's listed, both are clickable links.
If you want to say look at a specific Haplogroup like Y Halogroup H, click on the Y Haplogroup link. Once that is clicked, you will need to scroll through your Family Finder matches until you come to your matches whom are in Y Haplogroup H*.
You maybe surprised to learn that in some of your autosomal DNA matches that you have autosomal matches to other Y Haplogroup H* participants.
I am using one of the Smith Family Finder advanced matches report here as the example since he has more then a few matches to H participants.
The same can be done for mtDNA Haplogroups if you are looking to see if a specific mt Haplogroup is in your FF matches.
Just another interesting way of looking at your Family FInder matches. :)
This participant was formerly confirmed H - SK1225, but has since been moved downstream to H - Z14448. Once the dust settles, I guess I will be needing to create several new groupings in the project to reflect the lastest SNP identities.
It appears FTDNA has identified several new SNP's downstream of H - PH124.
So those of us whom were in H - PH124, 4 of the 6 participants have now been moved in to deeper subclades downstream of PH124.
All it really means is, FTDNA has identified new SNP's downstream and are making adjustments as needed. This is exactly what was to be expected, as more of us Big Y test, more SNP's will be identified and they will move us on down the SNP tree.
Two of us still remain in PH124, but in time we too maybe moved downstream as well. For now I will keep all 6 participants in the same PH124 grouping just to see how this plays out.
We have to remember, some were Y 500 tested, while others were Y 700 tested, so we may not all fall in to the same SNP, but we are all clearly PH124 but maybe being moved downstream of PH124.

3. Click the Project Preferences tab. Your Project Preferences page is displayed.
4. Choose Limited Access If you belong to more than one Project, they will also be listed and you should repeat this action for each of your projects.

This is James Bailey's Big Y matches, as you see he is a match to all the
H-PH124 participants. I would think because he is matching all the other participants, the rest of us would show the same matches, but it isn't working out like that and I don't know why.
Sudesh and Matthew
This is why I say there are 3 of you in H-PH830, but only 2 of you are in the project. This chart shows 3 of you, but I have no idea who the 3rd participant is.
In this screen shot, it shows the matching participants most distant paternal County of Origin. This information is only as good as what the participant inputs in to that information box under Genealogy.
If left blank, then that is what shows up for those whom match him, a black with no most distant paternal ancestor Country of Origin.
As you will see, 3 of the 4 participants did fill out the Genealogy section to indicate where their most distant paternal ancestor resided.
So this information is interesting but understand that this is information provided by the DNA participant and is not information through our DNA results.
Another screen shot of my own H-PH124 results just to give you an idea of what to expect when you complete your Big Y test.
Warren, this is what my Block Tree autosomal origins has to say about the 4 of us in H-PH124. Now exactly how they come by that percentage break down I don't know.
The new Big Y Block Tree feature is actually a pretty nice feature.
I still got a lot to learn about it, but I am really liking this new feature alot!
Those of you whom have Big Y tested, while looking at your Block Tree, it is hard to see, but there is an almost transparent circle with a right arrow in it
( > ), if you click on it, it will show you more H SNP's. While this feature is limited for the individual participant, me as Admin I can see ALL the H SNP's.
Even if an H participant has not done the Big Y test, but has done some SNP testing, in my Admin window I can see the SNP participants too, which is really handy.
I will use my own Big Y Test here as the example because there are 4 of us of 4 different surnames Big Y tested and in H-Ph124.
The Block Tree now shows me many more SNP's that are downstream of
H-PH124, which is really nice because when I go look at my SNP tree, those SNPs are not listed, but are now listed with the Block Tree feature!
In other words, thanks to this new feature, we now know of a lot more SNP's downstream of H-PH124 which is great information for me as Admin of the project.
I am still playing around with this new feature, and looking at other H participants Block Tree results and of the few I have looked at, I am seeing many more SNP's for your SNP.
I made this visual of the tree in our H project, using FTDNA's Y tree. Because my husband (whose terminal SNP is in orange) has no matches in our project, I found this a good way to see relations among us—though Donald's results groupings are super useful, of course. Anyway, I thought I would share. It's not very good for any kind of timeline, just the branching. I've tried not to make any typos.
Maybe this information will help people see exactly what it is I am seeing in our 67 marker Y DNA results. Now this is just a sampling using my 67 marker test as the example. While I may not match certain participants, some of the participants I am a 67 marker match with can be a 67 marker match to other participants that I am not a match to.
So in this example, I picked out a couple of my matches and then looked at their matches and it is very clear that we have different matches, but we are only off by a couple of marker mutations, and is why they may not match me at that 67 marker level.
In time, I will keep building this list and make it available to all the Rrom H-M82 participants so you can see exactly what it is I am seeing as the Admin of the project. In bold text and under lined are matches that I don't have, but are matches that my matches do have.
The SNP's listed in Blue downstream of FGC55137, are SNP's that they apparently did not test you for. It is also why I think it possible in the future as more FGC55137 are tested that you maybe moved further down one day, maybe, possibly, not for sure until it happens.
I think that it can happen because it happened to me, I was originally placed in H-SK1224 and then a couple days later I was moved further down to H-PH124.
And who knows, as more H - PH124 participants are tested, we too maybe moved further downstream? Hard to know until it happens.
I am not exactly certain why they also show SK1182, that is something I think I could ask the help desk about and see what they have to say about it.
The P96 tree has really expanded thanks to those of you in P96 doing the Big Y.
I have no idea what will be learned from all this Big Y testing, only that we are seeing the H* tree grow like I have not seen in the last decade, and if through our Big Y tests we start to learn more about our ancient ancestral origins, then it will be money well spent I think. :)
For me I look at it like this, the answers we had before Big Y testing were quite vague, but after Big Y testing, we can at least see that there was more to the story, now exactly what it all means in the bigger picture is anyone's guess, but at least we are making progress finally!
The H tree has pretty well been stagnate for over a decade, the only real advancement we had in the H tree was back in 2008 when some of us did the
H Deep Clade test, and even with that test not much was learned really.
H - M82 was at least better defined by doing the Deep Clade test which was an experimental SNP test, a test that was only made available because I pushed FTDNA for deeper H SNP testing.
I don't have all the answers, I wish I did, but we are at least making progress in expanding the H* tree, and that makes me pretty happy.
A 4th M52 participant has completed his Big Y test, he too was placed in
H - BY72518.
