"Q" in the UK and Viking homelands. My "Q" was assigned by FTDNA based
on a 12 standard marker test. How valid is this assignment? How many of
those "Q" assignments had SNP tests? I have not, FTDNA has offered me
the test for "Q", how detailed is their test? Will it show if I am Q,
Q1, Q2, Q3, or some other sub-group?

Could Helgason's unknown "R" and our assigned "Q"s be parts of some as
yet undefined subgroup.

MY 385b = 20 appears to be rare even in the "Q" haplogroup.

Does anyone know of a university doing a full spectrum SNP/UEP study, I
would be willing to participate. I have already sent samples to
Sorenson. On paper my line goes back to Norfolk England 1600.

My first 12 marker results.

FTDNA says "Q". Other results pending
