Another helping hand from my fellow Veldas. Someone mentioned I should download my FASTA file ( lower right corner of the results page FTDNA) and run the results through http://dna.jameslick.com/mthap/ for deeper clues that I might belong to a subclade. I know I would have to test the coding region for a true placement into a subclade, but the possibilities shown to me through this website are interesting:
Then I went to PhyloTree to see the defining mutations for this subclade:
So I went to look at the V7s participating in FTDNA’s haploproject:
There are very few V7s, but the groups further give clues as to where others may be found. Looking at the person from Turkey I don’t see an 93G so I wonder what was going on there. Coding region mutation only? I don’t know. My mutations could be a splinter group or private mutations only to our family. As I’ve mentioned before, our family story is that Sara Taylor, despite her surname, was Dutch or German.
