According to 23andMe I am R1b1b2a1a2f*.

Is this still L21 and what is the terminus for ...f* based on a current 23andMe test.

Surname Stauber well documented from Frankfurt circa 1700

I rummaged around at 23andME and found

R1b1b2a1a2f defining mutations


variant call anc der

rs11799226 (L21) G C G

That is the last marker reported so it appears they do not test beyond L21.

Glad to see you found the answer.

I'm of the opinion that 23andme gives the most bang for our buck out of the current commercial dna tests available, but it's a little unfortunate that they're slightly behind on some things, like haplogroups. As far as I know, they're still using the 2009 ISOGG tree, and they haven't done any updates since.

I tested positive for M222 through 23andMe. They might not test anything else downstream of L21 though.

The problem seems to be that 23andMe began as a health test and that remains the focus of the company.
