I got the same message from FTDNA --- that my "assignment" or "suggested
haplogroup" or whatever they call it was being changed to U5a1. The problem
is I have 16189C, 16192T, 16270T, and 16398A which clearly designate U5b2 in
the mtDNA trees lately found in the literature. When I pointed this out to
FTDNA I was told "I could be U5b if that's what I wanted to be". Well, I
don't really "want" to be anything with regard to mtDNA haplogroup; I'd just
like pronouncements from FTDNA to have some credibility.
