Title: All I2b haplogroups join the M223 project at FTNDA
Post by: PJButler on October 27, 2013, 03:25:49 PM
Please  if you are  I2b1 (I2a2a) join the M223 project at FTNDA you will learn a lot about your own DNA make up and perhaps find other members of you family

This project is dedicated to the DNA study of persons testing positive for the M223 SNP or predicted as such. This currently places us in the I-M223 subclade of Haplogroup I.

 The I-M223 Y-Haplogroup Project will provide Researchers and I-M223 Project Members with an organized layout of project results with project members assigned to proper subclades, which are defined by specific SNP's. The assignment of members to subclades will be done in accordance with the Cullen/Nordtvedt predictive tool but mainly FT DNA SNP testing results.

We know this project is in the right path. The I-M223 tree is incredibly old, and our surviving lines are much, much older than in the I1 Haplogroup, for example. In other words, we can expect a much more complex tree. In March of 2011, we had only six known SNP's downstream from M223. Look at how many we have now! We are working with ISOGG and FT DNA to get this new knowledge officially recognized. It will be beneficial to everyone who is M223+.

As you can see, we are in the right path to accomplish our goal: match specific SNP's to specific surnames going all the way back on the SNP tree to the emergence of M223, several thousand years ago.

Ireland is a small country compared to the USA. People travelled a lot in order to get jobs during the potato famine around 1850. Mine went to England from Ireland. Check on genealogy sites Like Ancestry to find where your ancestors lived. In regards to surnames, I found out my paternal line's surname was changed over the years, some kept the original name but most today adopted the new name. Happy Hunting.

I am having difficulting linking to this new group. I am interesting in joining because I don't have any matches in the Curran surname project.
Any ideas on why the problems?

Having just discovered what a I-M223 haplogroup is with my great great grandfather as my lnink, I feel looking at the dates on most of the previous posts that I have arrived at the party and everyone has gone home. Hopefully not. I've been searching for my 2nd great grandfather for over 15 years. Sometimes just when I've given up hope.....another clue drops in. I will continue to search especially since I've found "cousins" who are also in the search. There aren't many of us but I have faith.
