This is the text that should have appeared in the previous message:
As I understand it, the algorithm looks only at positions 1 - 12. I have
a number of similar "peculiarities" in my study. I have a number of
Greers who are predicted to be R1b but whose markers on positions 38 -
67 are pure M222+, and certainly not R1b mainstream. Unfortunately I
don't have access to their pages, and so must derive the predictions
from published data. However, my 2nd cousin, who is identical to me on
positions 1 - 37 (I am M222+ tested) and who for many months was
predicted by FTDNA to be R1b1 has now been predicted as R1b1b2e (since
the new nomenclature came out), but on what basis I don't know. Perhaps
FTDNA are beginning to use a larger set of DYS for their predictions.
But this prediction hasn't filtered through to the group pages. If you
are interested I will send you my updated spreadsheet.
