FTDNA J2 Haplogroups & SNPs September 2015

FTDNA J2 Tree 17th September 2015 edited to show important SNPs from SNP Packs also included in J2-M172 Research Tree simplified Y-DNA Haplotree Created in partnership with Haplogroup J-M172 This lineage originated in the northern portion of the Fertile Crescent where it later spread throughout central Asia, the Mediterranean, and south into India. As with other populations with Mediterranean ancestry […]


FTDNA J-M172 SNP Pack (xM67,L24) Beta release

Suggestions for members of the J2-M172 Project@FTDNA: 109 SNPs downstream of M172, see J2-FTDNA-SNP-pack_2015-09-09_and-research-tree.PDF optimized for all currently researched subclades except M67 and L24 (will have their own SNP Pack) recommended for kits who won’t invest in NGS (BigY) and like to get a good value for 1/5 of the BigY price recommended for kits without SNP testing who do […]

J/J2 fusion under way @ FTDNA 1

J2-Project admin Angela Cone who has blogged in Nov. 2012 about the reasons of low activity since 2008: “Sir Nico, Earthquakes, and Hypodopaminergia” and already announced her wish to have of team of  co-admins, everyone dedicated to a speciality area. “Before this new J2 project incarnation can fully emerge, there will be a period of metamorphosis over the next few months.  Behind […]


Y-DNA J-Project @FTDNA History 2006-2013

The “J-Project” was founded by Bonnie Schrack in 2006 and until 2013 has done considerable research in the J2 area, mainly SNP research (Z385-Z639, Z2220-Z2397) from public Y-Sequences to improve the Haplogroup-Phylogeny and provide updates to the ISOGG tree (accepted also by scientists). To backup important news from this time period and make them available for search here, a copy […]
