R1b and Subclades Gateway Project for R1b (M343+) Y DNA Haplogroup (includes M269) - Goals

GOALS

The goals of the R1b and Subclades project are to gain deeper understanding of the origins and migrations of our male lineages, as R1b people, while helping you find family paternal lineages and deep ancestral origins.

This is a gateway project as its primary function is to support DNA testing steps that will help identify where you fit within R1b and get you to the right subproject. This project is for Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) tested members or National Genographic Project customers that transfer their results to FTDNA.
