LivingDNA, 23andMe, and FTDNA Haplogroups – DNA Saturdays May 30, 2020

I forgot to check my LivingDNA mtDNA and Y-DNA haplogroups when I ordered my LivingDNA upgrade – FamilyTree DNA and LivingDNA Order Update April 27, 2020. Strange that I forgot to check the haplogroups until today, over a month later.


  • mtDNA – C1b2
  • Y-DNA – J1-P58 (used to be J1-M267 which is higher up the haplogroup tree)


  • mtDNA – C1b
  • Y-DNA – J1-P58

FamilyTreen DNA (FTDNA):

  • mtDNA – C1b
  • Y-DNA – J1-BY78 (pending Big Y-700 update)


  • mtDNA – C1b30
  • Y-DNA – J1-Z18288


  • mtDNA – N/A (not been tested)
  • Y-DNA – ZS3664 downstream from ZS227 > ZS2379

I requested a mtDNA expert to check my mtDNA results years ago since C1b2 was showing on 23andMe, but not showing on FTDNA. I did a follow-up since YFull is now showing C1b30. The expert still shows C1b as the best option.
