I2a1b2a1a aka I-CTS10228

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:

I2a-P37/L621+:

  • 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-]
    • Y3120/Y3116 (Aug-2017)
      • Y4460+ (Feb-2015) [Nov-2016: A+]
        • SK1241- (Y31845) [May-13-2017: C-, and also SK1242 G-]
        • Y3106 (Nov-2016). B57 T+ [Jul-2017]
          • Y3118- (Aug-2014) [Nov-20116: T-]
          • S8201- (Dec-2015) [Nov-2016: T-]
          • A6105 C- (Oct-2016),
            • A6106 C- (Nov-2016)
            • I-Y16810 (Feb-2017 moved as sub-branch to A6105. So 99.9% negative.)

Long story short: I’m I2a1b2a1b (based on positive I-Y4460). Neither FTDNA nor YSEQ have new terminal SNP to continue my research (Aug-2017).

UPD: 01-Aug-2017, I ordered Big Y, and details will be analyzed in I-Y4460 [ydna]. as soon, as I receive results.

UPD (May-28-2016) – Now, confirmed haplogroup for me is child entry I-Y4460.

Now, let’s dive into details 🙂

R1a vs. I2a [Y-DNA]

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.
