Europe and Ireland Haplogroups and Haplotypes

See also: Basic Guide to Ireland Y-DNA Testing

Note: For now there are only R1b family subclades discussed on this page. Additional haplogroups and haplotypes will be introduced and existing ones revised on this page as the project data demands it.

R1b Modal Haplotypes

The Haplogroup labels below are drawn from FTDNA rather than ISOGG nomenclature.

Name Long Label SNP/Description
R1b The most common haplogroup of Western Europe.
  R1b1a2a Now labeled M-269. Historically, this label has changed from R1b3, to R1b1c, to R1b1b2. Dominates Western Europe.
Atlantic Modal Haplotype (AMH) R1b1a2a1a1
Labeled L11, which branches off M-269.
Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype (WAMH) R1b1a2a1a1b Labeled P312. This appears to be a haplotype set and not one single haplotype. Exists in very high frequencies in Spain, the British Isles, and Scandinavia.
L21 R1b1a2a1a1b4* Labeled L21. An SNP which appears to be a major "junction" for Ireland haplotypes.
Northwest Irish (Type I) R1b1a2a1a1b4b Also labeled M-222. Branches off of L21. An older labeling scheme called this R1b1c7.
Leinster Modal R1b1a2a1a1b4f Labeled L-159.2. Branches off of L21. This project has evolved from surnames around the Irish Sea (both sides). It does not appear to be a derivative of Type I, II, III, or IV.
South Irish (Type II) R1b1a2a1a1b4i? No defining SNPs for this group have been determined. So far it closely resembles L-21. The most recent opinion I can find leans toward toward Eoganacht septs and surnames.
Dalcassian (Type III) R1b1b2a1a2f4 Also labeled L-226. Branches off of L21. Might be called "West Irish."
Continental (Type IV) unknown unknown

Some of the basic R1b- subclades are listed here. More will be added as they are identified. The colored green boxes show off-modal values. Haplotypes above the black line are not included in mode calculations.
