I don’t understand how this is “new” and different from their previous Y-DNA tests. The page describes three levels of y-DNA tests that appear to be what they have always offered. Please explain!


    It’s not the tests that are new, but the tree is new. Previously my hg was J-M281, but with the new branches it is further down line at J-L283.


FTDNA has my revised hg as J-L283 and Geno 2.0 as J-Z597. I don’t even see J-Z597 in the FTDNA tree.
