FTDNA just started providing their long form haplogroup again.
- FTDNA's Haplogroup tree is different than it used to be and different from what ISOGG provides.
- FTDNA is reporting quite a few long form Haplogroups on their ySNP view in their Project Public pages and in the GAP - with a good number of the T-SNP format mixed in. Sometimes, the long form is also in the Results table info for yDNA. There is no consistency.
- FTDNA is now calling the "Terminal SNP" by another name. It's now "short hand" on their ySNP page.and "Haplogroup" on their yDNA results page. That's good news in one respect, as "Terminal SNP" was a particularly confusing label - as it is clearly not anyone's true Terminal SNP.when they have an estimate and is probalby not their Terminal SNP when they have been Deep Clade SNP tested.
- Ironically, things were less difficult when FTDNA was not providing their long form Haplogroup at all - as then, it didn't matter which differences they had with the ISOGG tree. Now, the differences will be quite confusing - particularly when they sometimes report the "short hand" and sometimes report the long form.
WorldFamilies will continue to post the T-SNP (short hand) from FTDNA and the Long Form Haplogroup from ISOGG. We'll soon change the label to reflect FTDNA's new name for the "T-SNP" - "Short Hand"
To give one example of how different ISOGG & FTDNA are these days, here is my long form Haplogroup from both organizations:
We can only hope that they will align soon
