I took a look at the website and the one haplotype that matches my scores is
simply listed as R1b. I don't know if this means it is R1b or if the right
haplogroup is yet to be determined. Being 3 steps off on 12 markers for the
typical R1b, I would have thought indicated another subgroup. Perhaps I
don't fully understand this yet.
