As only FTDNA has full access to their database, I suspect we won't be able
answer that question for you. Also, I was told by FTDNA years ago -- and I
assume it's still true -- that they put a WAMH logo on, not just *the* WAMH, but
the four most common R1b 12-marker haplotypes and that they are only considering
the first 12 markers. Has anyone had a more recent clarification of this?
