Subject: [DNA] Should I Bother - SNP for R1b1c?
Date: Tue, 12 Jun 2007 01:57:12 -0400
I tested my dad - STR (37) via FTDNA (Haplogroup changed from R1b to R1b1 to R1b1c). The haplo metamorphosis is no longer in flux; it has remained stable at R1b1c. My dad has over 300 exact matches on (12) and 2 matches on (25) with a GD of -1 (no surname matches).
FTDNA suggests a deep clade, but I'm not sure if this is necessary because I read somewhere that SNP testing is much more beneficial for someone of the J haplo (please don't quote me on this) and that there is a high probability that the SNP markers tested by FTDNA will yield negatives.
I guess I could always call FTDNA, but my little ones always get the best of me and I never get around to calling. Can anyone help; any ideas? Should I or should I not test SNP for R1b1c?
