Subject: [ELLIS-DNA] back from conference- haplogroups
Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2009 18:37:01 -0400
Just got back yesterday from the Administrator's Conference in
Houston. Learned a lot, got new ideas, and had a lot of fun...
The first this I want to do is make you all aware that haplogroups
are changing again...this will be an ongoing process as the
scientists find more SNPs (really, it is a good thing) so I am going
to make a change for those of you that have SNP tested. If your
haplogroup has been confirmed, meaning that your sample was SNP
tested either by you ordering a snp test or FTDNA doing the backbone
test on your sample, I will be using the shorthand version for your
Haplogroup as it is posted to the results table. The idea being that
as the names change (like I1a changed to I1 last year) I won't have
to update everyone everytime a new SNP is found. I will of course
update your shorthand name if you test positive for more snps.
For those that have not been snp tested (your haplogroup was
confidently predicted by FTDNA and they didn't do the backbone test
on your sample, and you didn't order snp testing yourself), I will
continue to try and keep up with the changes.
You can all see the currect name and the shorthanp on the Haplogroup
section of your "My FTDNA Page". Hope you are all familiar with that
I am looking forward to using the new admin dashboard, and as
features come available you can look forward to new content on the
All emails scanned for viruses before leaving my machine!
I'm a TMG user!
