What are some good databases/websites that keep track of ancient genomes and their haplogroups? I know of Carlos Quiles' site but to me it's too messy and I too reliant on the map rather than simply being able to search for a haplogroup and all samples belonging to it showing up.

Have you looked at the spreadsheet all-ancient-dna.xlsx spreadsheet that he created? It's at https://haplogroup.info/all-ancient-dna.xlsx If you know how to filter in Excel then it is very easy to locate specific subclades and specimens belonging to those subclades especially if you know what the 2019 ISOGG longhand name is.

Thanks. I missed the excel file, thought it was only the map. But since you responded, what's the deal with the map? When I type in as an example G-CTS11562 it only shows the sample from Seh Gabi although there are two ancient genomes who belongs to this clade the other being from LC Azerbaijan. Manually I can find it by navigating the map.

Thanks this one seems pretty straightforward.

aYChr-DB: a database of ancient human Y haplogroups (https://academic.oup.com/nargab/article/2/4/lqaa081/5920394)
Laurence Freeman, Conrad Stephen Brimacombe, Eran Elhaik
Abstract
Ancient Y-Chromosomal DNA is an invaluable tool for dating and discerning the origins of migration routes and demographic processes that occurred thousands of years ago. Driven by the adoption of high-throughput sequencing and capture enrichment methods in paleogenomics, the number of published ancient genomes has nearly quadrupled within the last three years (2018–2020). Whereas ancient mtDNA haplogroup repositories are available, no similar resource exists for ancient Y-Chromosomal haplogroups. Here, we present aYChr-DB—a comprehensive collection of 1797 ancient Eurasian human Y-Chromosome haplogroups ranging from 44 930 BC to 1945 AD. We include descriptors of age, location, genomic coverage and associated archaeological cultures. We also produced a visualization of ancient Y haplogroup distribution over time. The aYChr-DB database is a valuable resource for population genomic and paleogenomic studies.
