I found 11 haplotypes within my I2a Project which matched on two or
more of  the markers of your new M26 French clade.
I will send them emails to make them aware they might fit your
new clade.

It sure helps to get an influx of a couple thousand new haplotypes, albeit
shorter than one would want. New clades within Haplogroup I are peeping up
above the noise level. An interesting new one is a clade of M26+ with a
distinct French flavor to it. M26+ has been called "Sardinian"
because a bunch of it is found on that Mediterranean island, but this extremely
old clade seems to have moved up the Atlantic seaboard and also into the British
Isles soon after the end of the LGM

This M26-F clade has the following modalities which differ from the bulk of

DYS19 = 17
DYS391 = 9
DYS442 = 13
DYS447 = 24
DYS439 = 12/13
DYS461 = 23/13

Not often do we find clades whose hotspot seems to be France, but here's

These M26 haplotypes have the standard 11 at YCAa which must have been the
result of a massive deletion at this STR between 10 and 20 thousand years ago.
