Below is what we received from FTDNA on this guy's test results page:

Haplogroup Test: your matches suggest that you belong to Haplogroup O2. You
may confirm that by ordering a Y-DNA SNP test for the O2 clade or
Haplogroup.

12 Marker Y-DNA Matches
4 Step Mutations

Haplogroup..Country...Comment..........................Count
O2................China......Chinese Ethnic Minority...... 1
O2................China......Chinese Muslim...................1
O2...............Mongolia.. -....................................... 1
O3...............Philippines -.........................................1
P................. India......... -........................................1

Our guy wouldn't be interested in the SNP test. The purpose was to assist in
making connections to one of our Hatcher families. At this point we're just
looking for some general info on what our results might mean in a very
general sense. Just hoping that someone on this list would have some info on
this particular HG.

I already know his chances of matching anyone, anywhere are slim to none.
We've had another guy who tested over 2 years ago with unique results and
he's yet to find even a 3-mute match.

Thanks!
Nel
