There are some good introductory tutorials at the DNA Heritage website, for example this one is a general tutorial:
and this one discusses SNPs and haplogroups with some easy to follow pictures (ignore the 'masterclass' tag!).
If you can follow that, all you need to know in addition is that this mailing list discusses a lower level SNP that occurs within R1b which we now call M222. There are some other longer names for it but they keep changing. M222 is quite 'new' in relative terms but still a lot older than anyone's traditional paper trail genealogy.
If you have more detailed questions let us know what they are.

> I am writting to ask how does one even start to understand all of this that is written here. I have been half watching this page for a few years now off and on and I have to say more off then on. Why? Because all of this is over my head. Where does one learn all this DNA lingo so there is at least an inkling of understanding of it. I am hoping I am not alone in this quest and there is some one out there intersted enough in us that are left in total darkenss to start givning up the goods that will help us get in this picture on a level that it makes some kind of common sense. While all the of this that you smart people write about is impressive; it is meaningless becasue some of us do not understand it at all. How does one learn about all of this.
