The 67 Marker Result Sheet
The SNP Results Sheet
Right now I am working at adding the information from SMGF.org into the spreadsheet. It's a little bit of a trial as SMGF has measures in place to prevent large scale usage of their data.
It's worth the time it takes just to get the larger coverage in terms of geographical area. SMGF is still heavy in British Isles entries but less so than Ysearch.
Please let me know if have updated any of your information.
This all ends up in the spreadsheet and you just never know when it might be useful for us.
If you find your entry in this list please drop me a line! I'm always up for answering questions if I can, or just saying hi to the human being behind an entry.
NOTE: Nomenclature changed from I1b2* to I2b* on 5 May 2008 to refledt the new ISOGG tree.
If you've made it here I'm going to assume that you have some basic knowledge and interest in human Y-DNA research. This page deals with a sub-group of the haplogroup called I which is known at the present time as I2b*.
subclade of the Y-DNA haplogroup called I2b* has been previously known
as I(x), and I1b2*. It was first described in May 2005 on the Genealogy-DNA list at Rootsweb.com. This consisted of several conversations between Bonnie Schrack and Ken Nordtvedt. Later they were joined by Glen Todd. Here is the original message thread between Bonnie and Ken. Some followup conversations early in the history of the development can be found here, and here.
It can be defined by using SNP shorthand as M170+, S23+,
M223-. I2b* can be typified as belonging to the I group but having
DYS455 = 10, DYS454 = 12, and 19-19 at YCA as modal values. In a recent conversation
with Ken Nordtvedt a possibility of a further sub-division based on the
value DYS448 was discussed. His view is that a larger sample would be
needed to make a proper determination. I have used this value for seperation of the minor groups on the spreadsheet. For group I2b*-A a value of 19 for DYS448. For -B a value of 21, and for -C a value of 20.
