"Where do I live"? "Near I-90 between Seattle and Chicago". That's basically analogous to presently asking "when did the M253 mutation as well as 15 other "equivalent" SNPs happen?".
On the other hand, "where do I live"? "On Sourdough Ridge Road 100 meters from its end" That's basically analogous to asking when SNPs within our more recent haplogroup thick bushes happened; S116 for example.
Yes, I'm waiting for some test results to come in from FTDNA and EA --- can't you tell?
