This update shows three major new branches:

--there is a new I-Y18331* branch which contains a man with ancestry from northern Greece . He doesn't share any further variants with the other I-Y18331* Big Y result who has ancestry from Zakynthos/Zante island off the western Peloponnese peninsula (southern Greece).  There is a third branch of I-Y18331, the large I-A2512 branch which contains almost entirely Greek-ancestry men, mostly from the southern Peloponnese or nearby islands.

--there is new I-Z17855* branch which contains a man with Hungarian paternal ancestry from Romania (Transylvania). There are now five I-Z17855* branches and 5 named branches below Z17855. Most I-Z17855 men have ancestry from Bulgaria and also from Greece, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine and other countries.

--one of the five named branches below I-Z17855 was discovered very recently. It's called I-BY116090 and it contains a man from Turkey who has distant paternal ancestry from the Balkans, he did a Big Y test at FTDNA a few years ago. It also contains a man from Serbia who did a whole genome sequence test at another company. Both men plan to order the YFull.com analysis

More branches for Kinley and Driscoll families, new upstream SNP Y91501--Updated I-Y12072 tree

Click here to download our October 4, 2018 tree for I-Y12072

Near the top of the tree, you can see a new Big Y result and a new branch for the Kinley family, which has paternal origin from the Isle of Man.

Near the bottom of the tree, you can see a new Big Y result and a new branch for the Driscoll family, which has paternal origin from southwestern County Cork, Ireland.

In the middle of the tree you can see a new SNP called Y91501. It seems that two major branches of I-PF4135 are Y19501+. Unfortunately most Big Ys report zero or very few reads at the Y91501 position. But Y91501 is available as an individual test at YSeq.net
