My haplogroup has been described as a subset of R-M269 which originated between 2000 and 4000 years ago. One can tell from looking at the signatory STR marker sequence of the other members that they have a very low probability of sharing this sub-set with me. At this time of writing, It appears to me that I do not share an ancestor on my paternal lineage with any of the others on this project, that lived at least within the last 2000 years.
I envisage that if my terminal SNP was to be appropriately "tweaked" then at least five of the blue, orange and purple coloured marker squares, currently suggesting haplogroup deviation would be obliged to change colour to green.
These are the DYS390 (23), YCAiib (22), DYS607 (14), DYS492 (13) and DYS635 (25) STR markers that predict my status as being R-U198+http://meekdna.com/U198dna/S29_3.html
