    Help! I'm a complete DNA idiot

    Morning all.

    I'm incredibly new to all the DNA malarkey.

    I've had my autosomal DNA tested with Ancestry and uploaded it to the Morley Predictor, it's said that R1b1a2a1a1c2b2a R1b-Z2 (R1b-Z30) is my most likely Y DNA.

    WTF does all this mean? I keep reading about Subclades but I haven't the foggiest what it's about.

    Here you can see the down/upstream clades of R1b-Z30.

    You need to test properly to determine your clade, though, these predictors are not reliable for anything other than giving you your general haplogroup.

    Here is the FTDNA tree for R-Z30. It has 565 branches.;name=R-Z30

    Z30 is just an SNP or two downstream of L48 so it is quite old. If you do an extensive test like Big Y700 you will be placed downstream in one of these 565 branches or possibly create a new branch.
