Title: R1b name change
Post by: gunslingingardener on October 16, 2012, 08:09:29 PM
R1b1b2a1b4c
R1b1b2a1a2d3 U152 L2+ S139
The R1b1b2 Haplogroup is now known as R1b1a2

Why do they keep changing it?

What "they" are you speaking of?

The system man, the system...

Just kidding.

I don't know, it's just confusing, I'm just complaining.

Unfortunately, "they" is not singular in purpose. There are a variety of institutions that handle things differently.

This confused me also.

My first test was with Genebase and they use the ISOGG (International Society of Genetic Genealogy) standard.  Our designation a couple of years ago was R1b1b2a1a2d3 for L-2*. 

I later wanted to upload my STRs to ysearch.org and found that they and FTDA both use YCC (Y Chromosome Consortium) standard and L-2* was classified as   R1b1b2a1b4c.  I subsequently tested with FTDNA.  That changed about a year ago to R1b1a2a1a1b3c. 

Just a couple of months ago I found that YCC has adopted the ISOGG classification of L2* as R1b1a2a1a1b3c. 

So, there you have it.

I believe it was the other way around. ISOGG brought its tree into line with YCC's.

Yup, I got it backwards!
