Over the past few months the FGC11134, CTS4466 Plus and R1b-South Irish projects have been combing through over 70GB of raw data searching for the branching structure of the genetic tree under CTS4466. All of that work has paid off as the ISOGG Y tree has been updated based on our research and collaborative efforts.
The reorganization starts with FGC11134 taking the R1b1a2a1a2c1c from L96. As the common ancestor to both L96 and CTS4466 this decreases the number of known branches of DF13 in the 2013 tree. Under CTS4466 we now have 3 major branches before S1121. But it is S1121 that is of most interest to the Irish Type 2 Kanes. Currently at the R1b1a2a1a2c1c2* this is as deep as two of the Kane testers have moved in the accepted tree.
S1121 currently has 6 known branches which should be added over the next month or so, but none of these appear to be the branch where the group is hiding. An NGS test from Full Genomes Corp is expected sometime around Christmas. This should lead to the discovery of the Kane’s distinct branch.
