Haplogroup R1b marker L1335

The is now a project for marker L1335 (also known as S530) a branch of haplogroup R1b at Family Tree DNA administered by Robert Hughes

This SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) is a marker which notates the group commonly known as STR47-Scots or the 'Scots Cluster'.  The marker is found particularly in western Scotland, but also as far north as the Orkney Islands and Sutherland.  There is also a cluster emerging in Wales.  The results page can be found here

You can see where L1335 fits in the bigger picture of Haplogroup R1b via this diagram produced by the chaps in the R1b-P312 Haplogroup and Subclades Y DNA group at Yahoo.

  1. I am excited about Scots Modal L1335 snp. After testing positive for DF13, son of R-L21, predictions indicate my off-modal may by L1335 and possibly L1065.
    Other than just assuming I am a Scot by surname "Luckey" glad to use the genetic genealogy Y-DNA. However will have to wait for FTDNA snp test.
