Recommendations for ordering y-dna SNPs (deep ancestry)
Last update August 7, 2019
SNP packs are not needed if a member of your group has a terminal SNP (just order that SNP to confirm)
Group Location Haplogroup Current Terminal SNP Recommended SNP Geographic Origin Model SNP packs you should order
If your group doesn't have a terminal SNP

Group 13 Pitts of North Carolina E-M35 E-M35.1 African Lineage E-M35.1 is found in highest numbers in North Africa. It is speculated that it was carried by Phoenicians traders to Europe.
E is also the most common lineage among African Americans.

Most are associated with origins in the Baltic area. Other locations are where the Germans & Sweedes invanded or settled like Moldavia and Saxon England
