R-L196 is a Subclade

FTDNA just released the new YCC Tree.  The L196 SNP found in my DNA has become one of the new Subclades in the R1b Haplogroup!!

We are now:  R1b1a2a1a1b3c2 - or R-L196, a Subclade of R-L2

I am a little stunned.  One of my dreams has been to see the Haplogroups extended so far in detail that they actually come into the Genetic Lineages.  We actually have realized that!

So far, we have found 94 men who fit into this genetic family that we call Barton Lineage I.   Our goal now is to connect with another genetic family who shares L196.

Congratulations!

Hi Terry,

Congrats on your new sub-Clade designation and it's discovery in your DNA!   This is always an exciting moment for any haplogroup.  May your success continue!

Sincerely, Debra
