I think you mean RG. When talking about nomenclature, you need to specify the marketing firm. Both RG and DNAH use Sorenson Genomics for testing, but use different nomenclatures. SMGF also tests there, but uses a third nomenclature.. However, it is transparent if you use their entry table. Strangely, they have not converted the RG standard to the updated RG/Ancestry standard.
FTDNA has three nomenclatures: FTDNA, Y-Search and Advanced Lab.
To convert from RG/Ancestry to FTDNA, you need to:
DYS441 Subtract 1
DYS442, Subtract 5
Y-GATA-H4, subtract 11
Y-GATA-A10, subtract 2
Thus, DYS442 is a match. Please recheck the Y-GATA-H4 result. 11 is usual for R1b and it is not a particularly fast marker. DYS449 was unaffected by the changes.

Can someone tell me the markers that are used to test at Sorenson's?
Also if these match?.. or adjustments needed to them??
