I believe that when we break-out the "most ancient" Haplogroup I (Hg2) into
its component sub-groups that many of us will be surprised..... Since I is
one most ancient of haplogroups, it is even probably more diverse than even
the YCC academics have defined in the their now infamous FIGURE 1 SNP
Hierarchical Tree...and may go out several more sub-branches......

I would like to see all of the haplogroup testing, include a "rider" for
each participant to add a test for SNP's to identify his
sub-haplogroup...(note FTDNA has a good lead in identifying these

Once this test information is compiled, I believe our dialogue here will be
qualified with NRY and SNP testing results that show geographical sub-groups
pockets that can be correlated more closely to historic Viking, Jute, Celt
or Germanic invasions....

Right now without these scientific results....all of need a "flashlight in
this darkness" as we have precious little scientific information to go on.

The point is that the haplotypes found in the Balkans are quite different
those found in Scandinavia see paper by Barac et al Eur. J. Hum. Genetics
11, 535 (2003).
