No, you are not alone. It takes time and lots of research and reading before
you can halfway understand this stuff.
Go to FTDNA's home page (www.familytreedna.com). You will see in the sidebar
to your right "Genetic Genealogy Tutorials" and "FTDNA Community." There's
good stuff in there.
The above link is about the DNA Newbie mailing list. Note that you have to
join the International Society of Genetic Genealogists (ISOGG) to
participate in the Newbie mailing, but it is free and the link is provided.
I was never in the Newbie forum. Instead, I threw myself head first into the
Genealogy-DNA mailing list. Then, after a few months, I got tired of the
bickering going on there and left for three years. It was only after I
became a project administrator that I went back and started reading the
messages on that list again. Keep it up long enough and you actually begin
to understand some of it. You can browse and search the archives here:
If you want to join the list, here are the options:
There's also a link to John's M222 site at the bottom of each message on the
mailing list we are on right now. Lots of goodies there too.
Take a look at the information on the personal page of the kit you are
associated with. Click on the Haplotree link. You can see where M222 is
You can ask questions here, too, although I don't always get answers to my
questions. Just hang in there and do your homework. Genetic genealogy is
just like any other technical field. It takes time and patience to master
it. Hang in there!
