As mentioned in this blog post – LivingDNA, 23andMe, and FTDNA Haplogroups – DNA Saturdays May 30, 2020, I listed my Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroups from different companies. As of today, the Big Y-700 is still projected for July 6 – 20, 2020.

In an interesting twist on FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) order history, I saw a change that had me e-mail FTDNA.

Awaiting Lab Results

Awaiting Tests
Tests Lab Procedure Batch Expected Notes
Big Y-500 HiYNGS 545 01/29/2014 – 02/12/2014
Big Y-700 Y700 1085 07/06/2020 – 07/20/2020

I am playing e-mail tag with someone at FTDNA to see if they can sort out the above. Here’s part of my e-mail response to her question, including what I show on YFull. The Big Y-500 order showed up a couple of days ago. I didn’t initially notice the Y-DNA haplogroup change from J1-BY-78 to J1-ZS227 until yesterday.

That’s from the Big Y-500. I got the results back in 2014. It’s weird because my Y-DNA haplogroup was BY-78 at the time and has been until this Big Y-500 order showed up. Once the order showed up, it changed to J1-ZS227 which is much higher up the haplogroup tree than BY-78 if memory serves. I expect once whatever test is being done with Big Y-500 thing is one of those tech things that’s above my pay grade. I figure one of two things will happen once the dust settles – I go back to BY-78 or I get a deeper level than BY-78. In theory, it could stay with the ZS rating if BY-78 turns out to be some weird fluke. A long time ago, I did uploaded my BAM file to YFull and the last update to my Y-DNA haplogroup a while back had me as
Y-Haplogroup: J-Z18288 Terminal SNPs: FGC17486 • Z18288/FGC17484 • ZS2379 • ZS2387
