Subject: [R-M222] Yet another revised haplogroup name for the M222 branch
Date: Fri, 7 Nov 2008 17:33:00 -0800


In the new ISOGG tree, the proper branch label for M222 is R1b1b2a1b6b.

FTDNA is still using the recently established label R1b1b2a1b5 for M222.

As knowledge of SNPs and new branching points in the Y-DNA Tree expand, it
will be harder and harder to keep all researchers and tree keepers
completely informed. That is why there is a growing tendency to refer to
branches of the tree by their major alphabetic identifier and the defining
SNP -- in the case of this group, R-M222. A SNP's relative position on the
tree may be subject to adjustment, but its identity is unchanging.
