I would be reluctant to base any conclusions on a modal in YSearch unless I
knew its source. I'm not sure what to make of those "R1" entries either. I
glanced quickly at a few of them. They looked like R1b1b2 of some kind to
me, but I didn't examine every haplotype or run them for matches.
Haplogroups in Ysearch are mostly entered by those who create the entry and
so are subject to all kinds of errors and vagaries.
