I have no I1b on my list of those who have done the Kittler test yet. But
there could be some who have and I did not hear about it?
I1b is a marker for which the first 12 markers are very wimpy for
identifying it even if normal. This is clearly a very rare haplotype. The
longer we take a somewhat passive role with regard to FTDNA and let their
pronouncements govern what we think, the slower will be our progress. The
collective experience of this List exceeds FTDNA in sorting out haplogroups
short of SNPs. Independent of whether the "haplogroup prediction charts"
specify haplogroup, we can make an educated assessment with sufficient
markers until such time the owners of an unusual one choose to have a SNP
Do you know if the "matches" are actually matches or near-matches? 12
marker or 25 marker? If there really are some matches then the population
of this strange haplotype should be significant enough to maybe show up in
Sorenson? Then I could get the key markers. Are the matches or near
matches identified as to their surnames or Ysearch code numbers? I'll scout
around maybe if I have time during my packing. But my guess is that it will
be lucky to find a DYS462 = 9 in Sorenson, Ysearch, or Ybase?
