Really enjoyed this. I've been meaning to ask if I should correct my
haplogroup, which shows "tested," even though I've had no SNP's tested. The
entry screen didn't ask me whether or not I had been "tested". It asked
whether or not I was "sure." Since FTDNA assigned me hg R1b1c with a high
degree of confidence, and since a cousin has been snp'd through everything
but R1b1c11 and has been negative for all the 3rd level numbers, I feel
If the guru's would rather have this blank for me and for my non snp'd
cousins, I'll correct(?) change (?) this.
No need to ask the dog.
