I was confirmed L196+ in September 2009 by the FTDNA WTY testing - the first found with this SNP. I then tested two of the most genetically distant men from me in my Barton Lineage I group - and they are both also L196+. FTDNA advises that we are still the only 3 at this point who are L196+.
L196 is one of 4 SNPs offered by FTDNA that are downstream of L2:
If anyone tests positive for L196, please let me know.
Thanks, Terry Barton
I will watch for that in the R-P312 and Subclades Project, and I will let you know if I find any L196+ results.
