My brother did a 46 marker test but all we know is that we are R1b and have a great long list of 'locations' and 'values' do we determine what subclade we belong to using these?

I have tested 67 markers at FTDNA but haven't received back the results from 38 thru 67 markers. FTDNA has estimated my haplogroup to be R1b1b2. I had known for some time that Hopper and Hooper were considered interchngable in early day Claiborne Co., TN and that most researchers still show the connection. My DNA test proves that the Hopper/Hooper connection is true.

I am a R1b1b2 with antecedants in Scotland and Northern Ireland (Macfarlane).

I am R1b1b2. My biological surname is Richards, which has a Welsh origin. But my genealogy is stuck in 1742 Virginia, so I don't know where my original immigrant came from. But somewhere in the British Isles seems most likely.

Donald - is there a Moore DNA project, and have you joined it?

Trevor - I can see your point, especially as the price of genetic sequencing continues to crash. It will be interesting to see how Y-DNA analysis is affected by new technologies!

My subclade is R1b1b2a1a. I have seen discussions on testing for L21 etc. but am not clear if any more testing would be applicable to refine my subclade any further at this stage? I know the science is evolving quickly so it may be best to wait and see for the time being.

Donald, have you checked your results against those on Ysearch, SMGF/Genetree and Ancestry DNA?

You'd think with an R1b1b2 haplogroup, Moore surname, and 37 marker test, I'd have a lot of matches. But no!
