R1b-U106 Y-DNA Haplogroup- Background

Administrators

Background

SPECIAL NOTE:  BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT SNP TESTING WITHOUT CHECKING HERE FIRST. 

Please see the latest revised R1b-U106 Tree at the following link for the best guidance on the branches of R1b-U106. The new tree information is constantly changing as Big Y and other test results come in, and most new SNPs are not yet individually testable. 

https://app.box.com/s/afqsrrnvv2d51msqcz2o

Also, see the ISOGG tree at the link just below for general guidance.  The ISOGG tree is accurate, but not as up-to-the-minute as our R1b-U106 tree at the link above. 

You MUST test positive for SNP U106 (aka S21) or one of its subclades on the ISOGG Y-DNA Tree in order to maintain membership in this project.  See

 http://www.isogg.org/tree/ISOGG_HapgrpR.html

Welcome to the R1b-U106 Y-DNA Haplogroup Project!

We strongly encourage those predicted as R1b1a2 (SNP M269) and/or who have the result at the 66th STR marker where 492=13 or higher, to test SNP U106 at FTDNA,  or check your SNP U106 result on the FTDNA "Big Y" test, or the National Geographic Geno 2.0 test, or the BritainsDNA Chromo2 test (where it is shown as S21), or a Full Genomes test, or a 23andMe test.  If you have the result U106+ or "T" at SNP U106, or S21, we strongly encourage you to Join the R1b-U106 Project.

The R1b-U106 Project exists as a repository for Y-DNA STR haplotypes in Haplogroup R1b-U106 (confirmed as SNP-tested U106+ or below) except for those which are L1+ (aka S26) or U198+ (aka S29), since Haplogroup projects for those subclades pre-existed the R1b-U106 Project, and by agreement, we refer L1+ or U198+ testers to those projects.  The STR haplotypes for all members of the R1b-U106 Project who have STR results, can be found under the "Y-DNA Results" tab above, under either "Classic" or "Colorized", subgrouped by SNP-based subclade, as the members test positive for descendant SNPs.  The subgrouping for these Y-DNA Results pages is explained, and other results information is found on the "Results" page under the "About this Group" tab above.  Also, the FTDNA SNP test results or NG Geno 2 positive SNP test results, for all members, can be found under the "Y-DNA Results" tab, under SNP.

WHEN YOU JOIN THIS PROJECT, YOU HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION TO PLACE YOUR SNP AND STR DATA INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN, FROM WHICH IT CAN NEVER BE RETRIEVED.  We only publish by the ancestor name that you provide, and the FTDNA kit number.  We do not publish your given name or contact info.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO PROVIDE US WITH DNA RAW DATA FROM ANY SOURCE, BY YOUR OWN CHOICE, YOU HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION TO PLACE IT INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.  Again, we publish by FTDNA kit number and the ancestor name that you provide, only.

The part of your DNA data displayed in a public project such as this one, or any other similar project, is subject to use by others who may wish to present it differently elsewhere.  Progress in this field of research depends entirely on the voluntary sharing of our DNA results data.

Data obtained from this project should be attributed to the R1b-U106 Y-DNA Haplogroup Project at Family Tree DNA.         

The term SNP (pronounced "snip") means a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, or change at a single position on the Y Chromosome DNA strand from the usual result found in other Haplogroups.  Y-DNA SNPs are very reliable, and are used by population geneticists to arrange the human family tree via the direct paternal line of descent (Y Chromosome descent).

A continuously updated Official R1b-U106 Tree can be found here:

https://app.box.com/s/afqsrrnvv2d51msqcz2o

A continuously updated Y SNP Tree of highly reliable SNPs is found at the ISOGG website:

http://www.isogg.org/

Because the ISOGG Y Tree is continuously updated as SNPs are proven into their respective positions on the tree, other trees at FTDNA or other labs (and their respective haplogroup labels R1b1a2.....) rarely agree with it.  You should rely on the ISOGG Tree, and for additional detailed branches, on the Official R1b-U106 Tree.

There is an online forum associated with this R1b-U106 Project, maintained by our Co-Administrator Mike Maddi, where members can share information, or research information posted into the forum's "Files section".  We recommend that members who want to keep up with the latest SNP development progress, and other areas of discussion join this forum, here:
