Hi all,

A while ago I took a big Y-700 test (FTDNA).
My paternal line (from the Maluku Islands, by politics part of Eastern Indonesia) is for now named C-FT71404, a subclade under Y-DNA C-M38.

The Country of Origins (and flags) updates allow us to see that there are C-M38
testers (all with their own or shared subclades/branches under Y-DNA C-M38) from Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Fiji, Rapa Nui, Society Islands, Philipines, Hawaii, Cook Islands and Vanuatu.

Our common male ancestor (with Y-DNA C-M38) probably lived on an island in the area between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, sometimes referred to as Wallacea.

There is much more to discover ;)

Nice! How many SNPs between you and your closest match's most recent common ancestor?
