Marilyn, There is a special Amerind DNA Project at Family Tree DNA which you can join. You can find the project here:

The admin should be able to tell you more about your results and perhaps suggest some websites for further reading.

I have had my mtDNA done both HVR1 & 2. The result is Hoplogroup C. I've done a little more research and I think it is C1 for sure and maybe C1b. Most of what I've read says C is fairly rare. It is a group that includes Native Americans which I am from Sault St Marie, MI. Any help or good websites suggestions would be great.

Those of you in the UK will be interested to know that Family Tree DNA are again sponsoring the DNA workshop at this year's "Who do you think you are? Live". The event takes place from 26th to 28th February at Olympia in London. The workshop speakers have just been announced and the full list can be seen here.

Dick Hill has just added an excellent new page to his website entitled "Why I recommend FTDNA". You can find the page here.

Nelda, Is your husband in a project? If not see if you can find an appropriate surname and/or geographical project for him to join via the Join projects menu, and get the project admin to look at his results.

Hi, Nelda,

I think that it generally takes about a day from when a man's results are posted for a prediction of his haplogroup to be made, so that might be why you are having trouble getting into his Haplotree. There are some men who don't get a haplogroup prediction based on their STR results, too, but FTDNA will do a free backbone SNP test to determine their haplogroup. The backbone tests are supposed to be ordered automatically, but FTDNA does advise people to request them if they don't get a prediction or an automatic backbone test.

If he has matches in R1b1, he probably is part of that haplogroup, and he probably isn't Native American in his strictly paternal line. Of course, he could have all sorts of Native American ancestry from other lines.

My husband just had his DNA tested with FTDNA and we got his 12 marker results in this morning, we are waiting on the remaining 24 markers to come back. I cant make heads nor tails about most of it. I am unable to load the Haplotree, but when I search his matches I get matches on Haplogroup R1B1 can I safely say that is his Haplogroup? We were almost certain he had Native American in him, but there is No Native American in that particular group right? Once the other markers come back is there a chance they could show some NA Lineage or is he way off base in assuming that? I certainly do not understand much about DNA, had mine tested a couple years back, but his is more in depth, I went through Ancestry dot com for my Testing and it seemed way more simple. Any thoughts?

The latest issue of the online Journal of Genetic Genealogy has just been published. The interview with Bennett Greenspan, CEO of Family Tree DNA, will be of particular interest. JOGG can be found online here.
