(NOTE:  As the number of Y-DNA samples increases, the specific definitions of Haplogroups continue to improve and offer much more detail into the history of each Haplogroup.  Should the reader find the following definitions of Haplogroups (effective as of 2005) to be too vague, or if the Haplogroup being sought does not exist in the following list, it is suggested that the reader click here to be redirected to the Wikipedia (free online encyclopedia) website.  Once there, merely enter the entire Haplogroup being sought into the search engine and a complete, up-to-date definition of any Haplogroup should appear.)

FTDNA provided summaries of the following haplogroups in 2005.  The reader should keep in mind that the designation of Haplogroups will continue to change as additional data and research provides further insight into the distant origin of mankind.  For up-to-date information on current designations, click here to go to the Frequently Asked Questions on Haplogroups at the FTDNA site.
