Categories: Pierpont-94

Test taker: Pierpont-94 (Ysearch: Q98QJ)
Paternal haplogroup: R1b1a2a1a1c2a
Terminal SNP: R-M467, R-S29, R-U198
RefSNP ID: rs17222279

The FamilyTreeDNA Y-DNA/111 reports a Paternal Haplogroup of R-M269[1]. This is a very crude result because it is from an STR test. Haplogroups can only be determined by a SNP test. The 23andMe test result gives a much more precise Haplogroup. The FamilyTreeDNA y-DNA/111 test results are posted online for comparison: Ysearch Q98QJ. The Family Tree DNA kit number: 364331.

The 23andMe result reports over 2300 SNPs on the Y-DNA, and reports a Haplogroup of R1b1b2a1a1a, however, this is using an old version of the Haplogroup tree. The correct solution for determining haplogroups, is to compare the SNPs with the latest haplogroup tree.[2] Here is my progression:

In 2013, my paternal haplogroup was renamed to: R1b1a2a1a1c2a[5]

Gs252 Magnitude 1.5 Summary Y chromosome haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1c2a

From a discussion at, this is Y chromosomal haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1c2a. The parent branch is gs114 but this also has an A at rs17222279 instead of the older G. Before 2013 this was known as R1b1b2a1a1a.

SNP is S29
Haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1c2a
Other names: M467 and U198
RefSNP ID: rs17222279
Y-position (GRCh37) YBrowse Build 37: 16839499
Mutation G=>A


  1. For some unexplained reason, in January 2015, this was changed to R-U198. I was not notified of this change and FamilyTreeDNA has not offered an explanation
  4. R-M467, R-S29, R-U198: three different names for the terminal-SNP for my paternal Haplogroup
  5. Family Tree DNA is now (Jan. 2015) reporting that my paternal haplogroup can be further refined into two more SNPs: CTS9715, F1881. I can't find the 'rs' numbers for these SNPs and I can't find any explanation about these SNPs. This is not reflected in the current official haplogroup tree:
