  • R-U106 (Y-DNA)

    This project is for people who have tested and been assigned the paternal haplogroup R-U106 (Y-DNA) and also for people who are believed to have been this paternal haplogroup based on tests done on descendants. The current naming convention is to use the terminal SNP, so R1b, U106* Also known as R1b1b2a1a (S21+), previously known as R1b1b2a From The R1b1b2a1 (S21+) is a prominent R1b subcla...

  • J-P58 (Y-DNA)

    This project is about a Y-haplogroup, which defines a group of men by a shared set of inherited features in the DNA of their Y-chromosome. This implies they have a patrilineal ancestor in common, because only males carry a Y-chromosome, which they inherit from their father. The major Y-haplogroups were formed thousands of years ago, and therefore each group can today include thousands to millio...

MH/Geni DNA Tests This project is sponsored by Geni's curators to provide help in choosing a DNA test and understanding what questions the different types of tests might answer. How to participate If you want to see the discussions from thi...

  • Y-DNA haplogroups

    A Y-DNA haplogroup defines a group of men by the shared features of their Y-chromosome. Members of the same Y-haplogroup have a patrilineal (direct paternal) ancestor in common. Y-DNA haplogroup assignments can help to identify recent and distant genetic ancestry, and provide insight into ancient human societies and their migrations. This project offers a thorough presentation on Y-DNA haplogro...
