J2-M172 Project- Background



Welcome to the J2-M172 Project@FTDNA!

J2-M172 lived approx. 30,000 years ago in the Middle East. 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.

  • Dear visitor: We still need some more time to fully setup the new J2-M172 Project@FTDNA. Please be patient when you encounter unfinished areas.
  • July 2014: First substantial re-grouping in the smaller J2a and the J2b groups.
  • Sep. 2013: J/J2 fusion @ FTDNA under way. Angela Cone has blogged in Nov. 2012 about […] her wish to have of team of co-admins, everyone dedicated to a speciality area. […] Read More...

Gateway Partnering

The J2 team will automatically add members to the appropriate J2 partnering FTDNA project as test results indicate.

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.
