Hi Sheila,

The two are not exclusive, but FTDNA is more precise with its location.
It's as if 23andMe gave you the name of the street (in this case, L266)
and FTDNA originally told you which side of the street (M124) and now
has narrowed the haplogroup even more specifically to an address on that

My husband, who is 25% Jewish on paper (paternal grandfather) but 14%
by DNA testing, recently received updated results >from 23andMe which
specify his Y haplogroup as R-L266. However, Family Tree DNA, which
previously had his paternal haplogroup as R-M124, now says it's R-F1758.
Either way, the 2 companies appear to have come up with different
results. Can someone explain this in terms I might understand?
