    Geno 2.0 NG FTDNA Transfer different / more defined Y Haplogroup?

    Geno 2.0 assigned me R Z195, but the transfer to FTDNA has me as R Z198. Is this reliable? Why would the FTDNA transfer be able to dig deeper on this than the Geno 2.0 NG?

    Thanks

    Was Z198 also positive in your original results? It's possible Geno assumes Z195 and Z198 to be at the same level and therefore assigned you Z195 as terminal, while FTDNA's tree might be further evolved and therefore takes Z198 as terminal.

    You can download your raw data file from the FTDNA page then look up your allele for Z198. T is positive and G is negative. See the screenshot that shows which file you should download. If you upload the file to a file sharing site I can let you know which SNPs downstream from Z198 you are negative for.

    Opened that CSV file with notepad, not sure if this is the correct way to examine it but in case it is:
