View Full Version : For members of J-L283, the J2-M172 SNP Pack is barely worthwhile

A project member who clearly belongs to the rather common European J-L283 (https://yfull.com/tree/J-L283/) clade ordered the J2-M172 SNP Pack. I noticed, to my disappointment, that this SNP pack tests only 4 SNPs within the J-L283 clade:

Z8425 (ambiguous according to YFull--found in two different places within haplogroup J)

A customer may do better testing individual SNPs.

FTDNA needs a SNP pack specifically for J-L283 (or one of its predecessor clades J-M241 < J-Z1825 < J-M102).
