Title: DYS455 = 10 ???
Post by: BLUESTEEL on November 28, 2015, 03:57:10 PM
I have the DYS455=10 . I am not really sure what that means, other than it is rare. One group of surname, mine included, has similar alleles until we get to the DYS455 = 10, then no one has it.

My results:

Can anyone explain to me how I can use this variant to further my research on my family.
If it is so rare, should I only be looking for this variant. Are others with this variant some how
connected to me?

Thank you for any insight.

Yes, DYS455 (as DYS454) is a very slow mutating marker, but also these markers mutate. Your haplotype has no other strange mutation as to the modal of a R-M269 subclade, thus it may be everyone. DYS455=10 is diffused in R-U152, so you could test this SNP. You may find it at for only 17,50 dollars. At FTDNA it cost the double, but, if you don't know anything about your hapogroup, you could consider to test a panel as the R1b Backbone of FTDNA or others.
