No . . . . GH5FW is my McKenney line (my brother's sample). The haplogroup
in question that is so puzzling is RNT9U - which is my husband's. A Thomson
with Scottish ancestry. The FKA was b. Ontario but he reported in several
census records that his father was b. Scotland.
It is the RNT9U that has a predicted haplogroup of "03". However, it seems
that now we are being told that: well. . . . maybe it isn't "03"; maybe it's
I would like to understand how there could have been a predicted haplogroup
of "03" in the first place. It would certainly be interesting if my Scotsman
husband had a Chinese ancestry. One could conjure up many interesting
Exactly how is a predicted value for haplogroup determined? Isn't there a
website somewhere that shows tables and has explanations????

Are you refering to haplotype GH5FW? It is of the Irish variety of R1b.
