Phylogram for Lineage 1

With the growing number of matches within the haplogroup I1 (Lineage 1) it is definitely time a pretty summary chart was created.

The version attached to the Lineage 1 forebear has an image map, so have an explore by clicking on the line labels.
The DNA analysis page has had a bit of a review/update.
It now also includes the radial tree version, below, of the above phylogram, and also a Genetic Distances table.

It was an interesting exercise examining the generated results and comparing them to those presented in the existing DNA Signature charts.
The latter are generated manually via visual analysis of the result tables, genetic differences provided by Family Tree DNA, and from known/suspected paper trails.
A couple of the generated results in the phylogram were a surprise, but mostly the two methods seem to have agreed.
One thing it did show is that the ELLIOTTs branched from the FAIRBAIRNs, not the other way around.
All of the above applies only to Lineage 1 (Haplogroup I1) as the other groups do not, as yet, have enough participants to provide many matches.
