just rec'd dna results from familytreedna

My last name is Groves and recently rec'd my y dna results. However, there is not one person with the surname Groves on my matches. I am thinking there was a paternal event somewhere. How does one figure out where that happened?

I have been reading dna information for two days now and must admit I am a bit overwhelmed. There is so much to take in.

I am R1b1a2 M269.

Please forgive my ignorance in dna. I sincerely have read and reread so much material lately I am a bit on overload.



I have my dna results and have nothing but dna information over the past two days. My matches don't even show one surname with Groves or anything like that. Could be a paternal event somewhere or maybe my line is just not in familytreedna database.

Anyone have any ideas?

My results are R1b1a2 M269

thank you
