I tested yDNA R1b1b2 with Family Tree Kit #54898. But I don't know my background. My late father never knew his dad.
Does this designation put me firmly in a particular national, or ethnic group?
My mtDNA is B2.
Thanks for your help:)
Please go to your "Y-DNA Matches" page, click on "Click here to upload to Ysearch.org", and follow the instructions to create a YSearch entry. Please be sure to write down your YSearch ID and password.

In my opinion, all R1b1b2s should order FTDNA's Deep Clade-R test (there's a link on your "Haplotree" page). R1b1b2 expanded so rapidly during the Neolithic Period and the Bronze Age that it is difficult to sort it out without the SNP testing the Deep Clade-R provides.
