    New Y-DNA Nomenclature on 23andMe

    I got to looking at my "new 23andMe experience" results and realized they have abandoned the outdated Y-DNA nomenclature with something else. How up-to-date is the new nomenclature?

    They have assigned me the new designation of R-PF6570. Does all this mean R1b-U152 or is there some new revelation in this designation?

    I believe it just means R1b-U152. My husband's changed to R-M529 aka R-L21.

    Yeah, I think they just put this up today.
    The new forums are broken today though.

    They forgot to update mine, ahhh, I will wait also for confirmation on Haplogroups from my "Living DNA" results.

    They haven't updated us because we are non-US customers, still on the "Old Experience". No sign of us ever receiving an "upgrade", although it was "soon coming" over a year ago.

    It's frustrating that 23andme chose to use the least common synonym for SNPs such as PF6570 for U152, M529 for L21, and M412 for L51. They took forever to transition to shorthand SNP names but when they did they chose the ones people are less familiar with. It makes no sense.

    I have a (23andme 4th cousin) relative who was assigned I-P109, a fairly deep subclade of I1, while I'm still just I1-M253. Did anyone else get an increase in resolution?

    There shouldn't be an increase of resolution for anyone unless they were given the wrong haplogroup in the beginning. Since your cousin is now labeled as P109 then he should have been I1d1 before the change. You should have been just I1 before the change.
