The Baltic Sea DNA Project - Results

After a first analysis of the BigY program results (up till now less than half of participants have received their results ) we are now able to confirm that what was postulated about a Finland subclade within the Baltic N1c-L1025 clade does really exist. After an analysis of results of 3 kits, #262236 Keskitalo, #113355 Tawast and #149374 Raiha, a new discovered SNP are detected as common for all those 3 persons, and only for those SNP:
Position Reference Genotype Confidence
14828233 C T High
15055448 G C High
16175412 C T High
17757862 C T High
and we can extend the proposal to add a fourth Finnish subclade N1c-L1025 N1c1a1a1a1 according to the ISOGG classification.
Internal structure of N1c-L1025+ sub-branches is under observation due to the fact that further results of BigY program are still to come.

There is now strong evidence that first split of L1025 clade was on Finnish and non-Finnish branches. This is indicated by the return mutation at position 23728337 in Finnish branch, where all the rest of N1C1 L1026+ descendants have a G->T at this position.

An Advanced STR marker DYF399X has been determined (it is a STR locus that can be used to observe deletions and recombinational rearrangements in the palindromic region of the Y chromosome) for 4 descendants (names in blue) of Giedymin - Grand Duke of Lithuania (died 1341) N1c1a1a1a1a (N1c-L1025&L551) Haplotype
This marker is valuable in few hundred years genealogy. Next 4 results from this subclade have been determinated in Baltic Sea DNA Project
There are results of DYF399X testing in 8 of 25 kits, proven for L551+ SNP:

Very interesting conclusions can be made after analysing the results of participants within the Baltic Sea DNA Project and their participation
within The Genographic Project by National Geographic. Here is an analysis for the N1c1-L1025+ participants and their results

As can be seen Geno2.0 comparison shows ISOGG subclades L551+ and L591+.
YSC000292 is still good candidate for new tribal find.
Solitary mutations have occurred and while F287, FP112, PF5535 and L226 seem to be unsteady.
as well Z1890, but we have already two matches.   
F3515 proved to be Private.

STR analysis in known genealogical trees

Visualisation and further analysis of the order of creation STR mutations is important for our understanding of differentiation of branches human family tree, and finally - our families. Here are two schemas such families, deducted from data presented on Y-DNA Colorized Chart
