If you tested j2a1e with 23andMe, we suggest youtest your STD (standard tandum repeats) markers because they will tell you where you belong in the group which is called a haplogroup. Further information about our unique group which follows the traderoutes of the world can be found on the Lost langtons j2a4d homepage.
 J2a4d / j2a1d is a division of j2a and j2. It is the FTDNA terminal project for M319+. It has previously been named j2a3d and j2a1e. The haplogroup is very dispersed and we aim to indentify as many subgroups as possible. Originating in the Middle East ( Syria, Israel, Iraq, Iran, Armenia, Turkey ) the group spreads out east to Afghanistan and Mongolia and west to Crete, Greece, Italy especially Sicily, Algeria, Spain, Portugal, Puerto Rica, Mexico, Chile, as far as the Phillipines. Another branch goes up through Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, England and accross to the USA. A phyogenetic tree can be found on the lost langtons j2a1d homepage. If you are j2a4d or you think you might be please join the project through your FTDNA account, log in, join projects, haplogroups, j, j2a4d M319+ , join. To be on the phylogenetic tree you will need to have at least tested to 67 markers.
If you tested through Ancestry or SMGF you can still join the group for $19 although I strongly suggest you take one of the $58 options. http://www.familytreedna.com/landing/ydna-transfer.aspx . If you tested j2a1e with 23andMe please consider taking the FTDNA STD test to find out where you fit in the group. The FTDNA test for 12 markers costs just $49. Have a look at the y test "results" section above.
