People ask me “how much does it cost to do genealogy research?” or “how much money you spent on your archives visits?” or “how expensive is the DNA test?”. So I collected a few items in this article, which will be ongoing, and I will update it as soon as I spend money on new stuff again 🙂
My previous post atDNA [86-8-6] in regards to autsomal DNA research was mainly based on FamilyTreeDNA results (FamilyFinder test) and my analysis. This post is about more atDNA results I achieved during 2015/2016 time period, specifically by DNA.LAND service.
UPD: This post contains old data/information based on DNA.land Ancestry report from 2015, apr-2016 and oct-22-2016.
In Apr-2016 my main Ancestry Composition pie chart looked in this way. But I re-uploaded raw data in Oct-2016 and here we are – new pie chart:
Still not quite sure about years, time ranges for this kind of tests. But it’s definitely not a few years ago, but hundreds and thousands years ago.
UPD: Latest article about similar information is atDNA #3 [ethnicity admixture]
In late 2014 (Dec-08) I received FTDNA results about my atDNA via “Family Finder” test.
Previously, in 2014 I made Y-DNA test, so I belong to paternal DNA lineage within haplogroup I2. More details here.
Here is short at-DNA results, based on FTDNA:
- 86% – European,
- 8% – Jewish/Ashkenazi,
- 6% – Middle Eastern.
So what does this all mean?
Від горщиків до ДНК. Або: ДНК дослідження опубліковане 10-Чер-2015, каже, що люди з степів теперішньої України своєю міграцією вагомо вплинули на розвиток народностей Європи та Росії. Або: 73-75% ДНК прото європейців подібна до ДНК прото-українців.
В чому унікальність? А в тому, що науковці протягом багатьох десятиліть вели дебати про шляхи поширення людей в Європу, і більшість сходились на одній думці, але тепер ДНК дослідження показує зовсім інший кут зору на питання міграцій народів.
Отож розуміючи, що така інформація дуже важлива не тільки для мого генеалогічного а тепер вже і генографічного дослідження, я вирішив частково перекласти з англійської мови джерела які власне прочитав.
Since I started DNA research in scope of my genealogical research, I joined Family Tree DNA service [USA], and this post is dedicated to to Y-DNA testing. I do updates of this blog post, as soon as I receive/discover something new and relevant.
First of all I ordered Y-DNA37 only (Jun-2014). It gave me I-P37 as a main predictable haplogroup (but in red color, which was prediction). Later I ordered Y-DNA-67 (Oct-2014) test for more detailed data (more markers – more accurate data, and more accurate matches research). Then I requested a few SNPs, and here are all my results:
- CTS10228+ (Dec-2014) [Nov-2016: C+, V4023 C+]
- A2512 C- [Nov-2016]
- S17250– (Jul-2014) [Nov-2016: YP204 G-, V3022 G-]
- Z17855– (Apr-2015) [Nov-2016: G-]
- Y4460+ (Feb-2015) [Nov-2016: A+]
Long story short: I’m I2a1b2a1b (based on positive I-Y4460). Neither FTDNA nor YSEQ have new terminal SNP to continue my research (Feb-2017).
UPD (May-28-2016) – Now, confirmed haplogroup for me is child entry I-Y4460.
Now, let’s dive into details 🙂
In 2014 year I ordered my first Y-DNA using FamilyTree DNA. I-P37 (I2a1) – this is the name haplogroup, which defines my Y-DNA tribe ~10000 years ago. I-P37 is a child branch of І2 aka M438. And this is tribe with the name Dinaric, Balkans group, South Eastern European people. My first Y-DNA test was based on 37 STR base. Details here. But more details in my another post “I2a1b2a1 aka I-CTS10228“.
My goal #1 is achieved – I know what main tribe I belong to. But this is time line ~20000 – ~10000 years ago. It’s very ancient tribes and very ancient DNA. And before go deeper and to closer years, I do research and follow genetic information about what is exactly I haplogroups and how it’s related with other DNA haplogroups.
But before my Y-DNA tests arrived, I expected to be R1a, but it turned out I’m I2a1 (aka I-P37.2).
So all these thoughts bring me here, to this post – I want to describe, research and classify for myself all about I haplogroup and also R haplogroup – the main in regards to Ukrainian as natianlity.
