Just curious if there is any examples where someone was called R1b1b2a1a2d (R-U152) when in fact they were in fact R1b1b2a1a2d3* (R-L2). That is, the 23andme test didn't pick up the L2 that was later identified via another source e.g. FTNDA.

I ask because I'm wondering if I should further investigate my R1b1b2a1a2d matches.

Found an example here.http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?3403-What-U152-R1b1b2a1a2d-subclades-does-23andMe-v4-chip-test&p=57483&viewfull=1#post57483

So yes, an L2 guy may be U152 on 23&me

hmm that is very interesting since my dad just had a curious R1b1b2a1a2d match. I wonder if it is really a d3.
The match seems to be 100% French going way back and my dad doesn't seem to really fit that at all, but his R->L2->L20 is a bit rare for the Baltics so wondering if this could be some weird singular link.
I think the match is V4 though since it's new. But maybe a badly placed no call?
Then again it might have nothing to do with his Y-line at all.

23andMe lists me as R-L2*, but my father is listed as R-U152.

I wonder if 23&me can go further than U152 ( R1b1b2a1a2d). I'm myself listed as U152 by them, I got the L2 and Z367 specifications with Yseq.

23andme lists me as L2, so they can certainly go that far.

I am not certain but I believe L2 especially in the V4 version has lots of no calls so I think many U152's may be L2. I just had someone yesterday asking about this and they had a no-call at L2.

This happened to my father. I tested with v2 and was designated as R-L2*. My father tested years later with v4 and was listed as R-U152.

It can since it has me as R1b1b2a1a2d3. That is R-L20 I believe.

23andMe has me down as R1b1b2a1a2d. At FTDNA's last sale, I signed up for a Y-67 test but haven't got the results yet. I should hear from them next month. I'll try to remember to report back to you.

actually 23 V4 has me as R1b1b2a1a2d3a which is R-L20 (without the a is just R-L2 I think)
