I'm a "Newbie' to SNPs and SNP testing. My 67 marker values are the mode for my 58- person (67-5 or better match; includes 19 closely matching non-Ro(d)gers) Y-DNA Group (per the FTDNA official Rogers Project on rogersdna.com, Curtis Rogers, Adm.). 

Five Ro(d)gers in our Ro(d)gers group just tested positive for the R-L1335 SNP.  Two of my 67-2 matches can trace back to a John Rogers b. 1617 (prob. England or Wales), came to Jamestown, VA in 1635.  A 67-5 McKay match can trace back to 1760 Durness, Scotland.  We have heard that some McRorys of the Galloglas mercenaries of Norse/Gael ancestry of western Scotland changed their names to Ro(d)gers and this might explain our having Scots roots. In addition, I have 67-6 and 67-7 Y-DNA matches with four listed under the L1335 section of the FTDNA L21 plus Project (Leslie Tate, Gregory Butcher, Rex McCoy, and Patrick Moore).   I also have  67-4 to 67-7 matches with many Scots -surnamed people. 

While the topics on the R1b and Subclades Topic are very interesting, I'm looking for basic/beginning information to  understand the significance of these SNPs and whether I should do Geno 2.0 or more SNP  tests.  Thanks for any help.

The R1b project background page gives you an introduction on why you should consider testing for SNPs and some additional reading/references.

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/r1b/default.aspx

If you have not done any SNP testing, the general Geno 2.0 package test is a "safe" bet because it gives you broad coverage and even goes from Y DNA over to autosomal and mt DNA.

Thanks.  That link was useful, but can you tell me a bit more about the SNPS downstream of L1335?  The L21 plus Project doesn't show them (L1065, L743, L1334, CTS6838,CTS7030).  Is the Wales II cluster just one of these? I've heard that most who test positive for L1335 also test positive for most of these--how can I find this information?   My Ro(d)gers group is wondering how we can be Scots!

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
