A new set of results are in, back from Family Tree DNA. My confirmed and updated Haplogroup is now R1b1a2a1*; Shorthand: R-L150. I have updated my Smith YDNA and mtDNA Ascendancy Chart. This genealogy genetics stuff is amazing, and at times miles above my scope of understanding... but I'm trying.
Locate the R1b1a2a1 on the YCC tree. To date, I have tested negative for the deeper branches under the R1b1a2a1. It means that I do NOT belong to any of the subsequent branches which have been tested and resulted as negative. An asterisk “*” is included at the end of result which, I believe, indicates that there is still more to be discovered… and yet to come. It means that I still have to go deeper.
The results of my YDNA Tests are as follows:
P25+ M343+ M269+ M207+ M173+ L49+ L23+ L150+ U198- U152- U106- SRY2627- P66- P312- P311- P310- P107- M73- M65- M37- M222- M18- M160- M153- M126- L51- L151- L11-
All-things-being-equal these results should be close to or equal to YDNA results for all Smith descendants of ggg-grandfather James Smith. This will include the surnames Landreth-Smith, Smith, Lloyd-Smith, Lloydsmith, Malins-Smith and others unknown.
