Why did FTdna list my haplogroup as I and World shows it as I1b

As far as I can tell, the testing bodies use various algorithms to determine what clade you are in, trying to impute from SSRs what your SNPs might be   - and the algorithms differ between providers. On the web you can find some standard 12 marker descriptions of what, say,  a E3b#2 should look like - see

Theres a website that will estimate it for you - you just feed in your markers and it gives you the estimated haplogroup.

If you dont closely match one of these standards - then its almost guesswork putting you in a cluster.

If you are really interested then you should get a deep subclade test to prove what your SNPs really are. is a good place to see the geographic distribution of various haplotypes. There are also a lot of pie charts of their distribution scattered around the web

I moved this post from "Question of the Week" to "General Discussion" as part of some forum maintenance.  "Question of the Week" is supposed to be a place for all the news articles and questions that WorldFamilies administrators post on our main webpage, while "General Discussion" is supposed to be a place for users to start their own topics.  Both sets of posts were mixed together, and I just did the laborious job of separating them.

I'm hoping that the forums will be easier to use in their new format.  It should be simpler for users to discover what's new on the website and, thus, it should be easier for folks to stay involved here.  This is just a small part of the overhaul we're doing to the forums, and you should expect to see a great many improvements in the coming days and weeks.  Thanks for being patient, and I apologize for any inconvenience that I may have caused.
