[[ Clades are discovered, not defined.

Most all clades have been discovered by hobbyists and some academic papers,
not FTDNA. The latter are really not interested in finding clades, except
perhaps some of the executives who have a special personal interest in
Jewish clades. You can say haplogroups are defined, however. Ken ]]
