Subject: Re: [DNA] Mtdna haplogroup R*

I know what you mean. The first case certainly is a match with B but since FTDNA is calling it R* it presumably lacks the SNP for B that FTDNA uses to define B.
If this is not correct then I think we would have to call into question the results coming out of the Genographic Project or do they use a different standard?
The sample close to B is out of New Mexico which could make it more likely to be Na Dene.

with an exact HVR1 match with someone who is haplogroup B.
Kit 40119 - 183C,189C,468C,519C
as Ian just mentioned, both sequences are likely to be in B. Particularly,
there is no problem with placing the first sequence into B4b haplogroup, you
may find tons of matches. Probably, the second one is B too: there is a
partial match from Dominican republic - isn't it close to the place where
your sample was obtained?
