J2-M172 Haplogroup Research- Background



Welcome to the J2-M172 Haplogroup Research Project @ FTDNA!

J2-M172 lived approx. 30,000 years ago in or near Northern Fertile Crescent. Learn More...

Goals: study the pedigree relationships (phylogeny) of all J2 lineages (subclades) down to genealogical time, assign project members to appropriate terminal groups and help them in using Y-DNA results and further testing to connect ancient paternal history with surname origins and genealogy.

ISOGG Certification

Newly discovered haplogroups need enough evidence for registration. Order appropriate further testing or donate for them.

BIG Y Sequencing

Next Gen Y Sequencing is the new test that pushes Y-DNA research in the next years. By ordering and making results available you will help tremendously to increase public knowledge.
