Your haplogroup may be changing

I've been busily slogging away for the past few days updating as best I can your haplogroups as shown on the website.    FTDNA and ISOGG just published new Y-Chromosome Phylogenetic Trees which change many of our positions on those trees.

What's a haplogroup?    Wikipedia defines it as a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor with a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation.

If you're interested to see the new trees, you may click these links:
       ISOGG             FTDNA     (This will be a download.)

I may be a little slow for some of you who have tested with companies other than FTDNA and who have not SNP tested.    But we'll get there.
