    Two (very) Basic Y-DNA Questions

    The first question is that--according to FamilyTreeDNA--my predicted Y haplogroup is R-M269; however, I uploaded my autosomal DNA result to WeGene, and they claim my predicted Y-DNA halpgroup to be R1b1a1a2a1a2c1a4a. So, are R-M269 and R1b1a1a2a1a2c1a4a in any way related, or is WeGene's prediction just a poor guess?

    Also, how is WeGene even able to ascertain my Y-DNA haplogroup from my autosomal DNA? And if this is a legitimate extrapolation to make, why didn't ancestry provide me with this info?

    Ancestry does report some SNPs from the Y-Chromosome in its raw data, but it does not currently report the haplogroup explicitly.

    Here's another site that will extract your Y Haplogroup from Ancestry raw data:

    Your ID Caoimhin is interesting. My last name is O'Keefe which is Caoimh in Irish. Any connection to O'Keefe/O'Keeffe?

    Thank you! I'll try to make sense of the Morley site right now.

    "Caoimhin" is a common Irish spelling for "Kevin," which is my first name. No "O'Keefe"s in my background (that I know of!).

    Thanks again.
