Hi guys. Just joined this. Recently received my Chromo2 results from Britain's DNA. My YDNA group is I, with a subtype of I-S1954. My mTDNA group is T, with a subtype of T1a1. I am a red hair carrier, with the redhead variant Asp84Glu. Want to know what to do next.

You could check out the I1-Z140 project at FTDNA at https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Z140/. It looks like you're on the branch to L338. If you have your raw data, you could check to see if you're L338+ (a.k.a., S197). There's also an I1 mailing list you can subscribe to or browse at http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/index/Y-DNA-HAPLOGROUP-I

Hi Les.

Im also I-S1954, which you'll gather is a select band on BDNA (0.5%!).

It would be interesting to compare the markers you're positive for. Feel free to DM me.

Im also impressed you're in the Shetlands. Is that a longstanding family location for you? My paternal family were mainly Welsh Marches for the last half dozen generations at least. I was expecting deep Welsh patrilineal ancestry - so being Germano-Scandinavian was a bit of a turn-up. Might explain my indifferent rugby skills, but maybe I could be entrusted with making the trains run on time...

Regards

David

Hi, Im I-S1954 and would like to find out more, particularly as I know nothing about my family history. We seem quite a rare group.

Hi David, I am also I-S1954, which might come from my father's family's origins (at least from the 1800's) in Swansea. My mother's line is H5a1p, but part of her line came from the Gwent Hereford borders. As with you, my rugby skills were minimal, but I'm really not very good at timekeeping!!

I am one too. Maybe we should encourage all the other I-S1954 s to 'register' in this thread. Just to see how common we really are.

I'm S1954 too! When I got in touch with the Z140 project, a very helpful guy there told me that my S12289 that also showed on my Britain's DNA is actually downstream of S1954. Are any of you positive for S12289 as well? Good to be in touch by the way.

Has anyone turned up the surname Ernest in relation to our group ? I have been following local leads and this name has popped up ?

Cheers David. A reunion indeed, and would be mind-blowing for our common forefather to see us in contact on the internet. Where did you test to get that S12289 result?

Anyone else got S12289?

Remarkable.

I'm a longstanding customer of Britains DNA - they've kindly done my mtDNA too, with the unusual result that only one other contributor to their DBase has the same mother line. I'd love to make contact with them in view of the likelihood of a family connection, but unfortunately BDNA doesn't have a forum / surname project.

Has anyone found a link from I-S1954 to the surname Jones ? This seems to be my best lead so far

Jones is the most common surname in Wales. I would imagine that pretty well any Y-DNA haplogroup with a reasonable showing in Wales will have a Jones carrier somewhere.

The best advice was given by the expert "pyromatic" in post 2 on this thread. There is an online FTDNA project for I1 Z140, of which F2642/S1954 is a subclade. I just took a look, and you can see lots of surnames there of carriers of F2642 (which is the SNP name used there), arranged into subclades : https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Z140?iframe=ycolorized

The carriers of this SNP are not exclusive to Wales. You will see origins there from England, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark and other countries.

Hi. I've just had some of the results from my FTDNA I-L338 SNP Pack and it says I'm I-S12289 (which I think is downstream from I-S1954). And my surname is Jones.

I know this is an old thread but I am S12289.

Good to hear from you. My male line was from the Derbyshire Peak District, how about you? I think most recent common ancestor for S12289 is estimated at 2,800 years ago.

Family origins go back to Tipton in Staffordshire, UK. But most of my ancestors were around Dudlley, Walsall and Rowley Regis. We came to the US in 1869 as coal miners.

Thanks for that interesting info. I'm not on Facebook, unfortunately.
