5% DF19 :eek:  Might be tops for countries over 100 results. Smile

Good news:  All 5 are in the Block Tree.
Bad news:  Not one is in the DF19 group.

Block Tree Breakdown:  
3 DF88 (only 2 show in Discover)
1 Z302
1 Unknown -- there is a known, identified third DF19 branch, R-FTB38073, but he is not there in the Block Tree, and all 9 known FTB38073 to date are UK/Irish, maybe back to BA or maybe newer.
  
Discover has 4 from Luxembourg (2 DF88, 1 Z302, one unknown) and also 4 branches below DF19 (one branch is still an un-named singleton).

I have no idea if this is significant or not since the genealogical data are lacking. My paternal grandmother's maiden surname was Pierce. A 22 cM male Pierce match of mine - again I don't know if the connection is on my paternal grandmother's Pierce line or not - just got an R-U106 result via Family Finder. Could be something, might be nothing. I hesitated to even mention it, but then I figured what the heck?

This is the kind of stuff I'm looking for though. I don't really care about the overall total haplogroup stats.

R-U106 is the second largest branch of R-M269. A slight narrowing.

Out of the entire FTDNA database, R-U106 is about 10%. So you could say that a U106 identification rules out 90% of males.

If you really want to look at this a bit harder, FTDNA is testing plenty of SNPs downstream of U106. The fact that your match did not test positive for one of those implies that he is likely on a branch that was not tested. Probably a small branch off U106.

btw, U106 is also known as M405 or S21
