As in my sentence "snp tags". Tags are like the landmarks you remember and
record along a complicated auto trip so you can find again key junctions
that were along the way.

The haplogroup I tree had two branch lines leading to the I2a2-Dinaric clade
and to the I2a2-Isles clade. These branch lines had parted from each other
about 14,000 years ago, as determined by interclade variance between Dinaric
and Isles haplotypes.

On the former branch line I wrote down (as tag) "L69 = T" when some test
results indicated that is where it belongs in the previously laid out tree.
On the latter branch line I wrote down (as tag) "L161" when some test
results indicated that is where it belongs in the previously laid out tree.
That's what was meant by "tagging" the branches so their downstream clades
become acceptable as haplogroups for the IOGG and the YCC folks when they
happen to meet and consider new developments. KN ]].
