About this Group

The Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype is an abstract statistical construct, representing the most common marker and allele values found in western Europe and the Americas. We've reserved this group for members who match the haplotype definition, but can not be placed in a more precise grouping.

All members matching the WAMH are also in haplogroup R1b1a2 (shorthand R-M269). They may fall into either of the two predominant subclades defined by the SNPs U106 (R1b1a2a1a1) and P312 (R1b1a2a1a2).

WAMH men tend to have many matches, sometimes hundreds at 67 markers. SNP testing can be successful in eliminating "coincidental matches" from consideration.

FTDNA says:

Your DNA signature is the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype the most common Y-DNA signature of Europe’s most common Haplogroup, R1b1b2. Simply put your ancestors have experienced a dramatic population explosion over the past 10,000 years, probably since the end of the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM-that’s Anthropology-speak for the last Ice Age) that covered most of Europe beginning 20,000 years ago and lasting for 10,000 long cold winters.

R1b, and its most common Haplotypes (yours), exists in high or very high frequencies in all of Western Europe from Spain in the south to the British Isles and western Scandinavia in the north. It appears that approximately 1.25 % of Western European males share this strikingly common genetic 12 marker signature and because of its very high frequency we always suggest that for genealogy purposes people in this group should only use our 25 or 37 marker test for their genealogy.

Anthropologists have been describing for many years that only a select % of all the males in past societies did the vast majority of fathering, while other males lost the opportunity to pass on their Y-Chromosomal genes.

And on its FAQ, "Today we know, thanks to superior levels of STR testing and advances in haplogroup testing, that this motif, even at 12 STR markers, does not represent a single founder dating to the last ice age but many different lineages within haplogroup R1b. Due to the rapid population expansion that took place at the end of the last ice age, these lineages at low levels of testing have experienced convergence. That is, they have mutated to look alike even though they do not share even middling deep ancestry."

On a lighter note it is clear that R1b’s Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype has contributed much more than its ‘fair share’ in populating Western Europe.
