New branches: 2019-10-27 tree for I-Y4460

Click here to download our 2019-10-27 draft tree for I-Y4460

This tree shows two new branches:

  • I-BY137420, the samples are from Russia and an unspecified country
  • I-FT8963, the samples are from Poland and an unspecified country

This tree also shows I-BY94806 as a subgroup of I-FT40113. These branches were formerly considered to be parallel branches. There are at least 7 samples in these branches, they are from Poland, Russia, Ukraine and unspecified countries.

Finally this tree shows a new Big Y-700 result (Russia) in the I-A6106 haplogroup.

  1. @Bernie, @Zdenko

    I see, that kit# 182636 is Mr. Hulewicz.
    And as I know his yDNA results were time known since Aug-22-2019. I remember ur post in FTDNA group. And only now, kinda new SNP FT8963 defines him.

    Were there some new Big Y-700 results which increased probability of correctness only now?

    Anything new in regards neighbor SNPs - FGC63213, Y128456, Y128937 ? :)

  2. As you say, one Big Y-700 was completed in August 2019. The second Big Y was completed in February 2019. This man isn't a member of the I-P37 project. He doesn't list an ancestor or country of origin, but based on his name, maybe he has paternal ancestry from Central Asia/a former Soviet republic. I don't know why Zdenko and FTDNA didn't add this branch earlier.
