Several people have asked about SNPs and haplogroups. What follows is what I hope to be a simple explanation of what they are and what they mean to genealogical researchers.
Think of haplogroups on a type of phylogenetic tree. The oldest haplogroup, from which we all evolved, is haplogroup A. It is currently most common in East Africa. It is rare among Europeans and rare among African Americans, whose origins are mostly in West Africa. Haplogroup A, being so rare among Europeans, makes it very easy for DNA to determine possible relationship.
Haplogroups are determined by SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) which are rare mutations. When the mutations are successful and proliferate, we say a new haplogroup has developed. Very often those mutations are successful because they answer some environmental challenge.
The most common haplogroup in Western Europe is haplogroup R1b. R1b is a branch of haplogroup R. Sub-clades are a further branching from the main group. My own haplogroup is R1b1b2a1a1, several steps of differentiation from the main branch, R. You might think of the sub-clades as twigs on the main branch. Another name for my sub-clade is U198+ which means that I am positive for the SNP named U198.
What makes this so useful among the Boyds is that it is a relatively rare sub-clade of the common sub-clade R1b, but VERY prolific among Boyds. So you can begin to see the usefulness of Deep-Clade testing?
It's very important to keep in mind that a person of haplogroup A CANNOT be related to a person of haplogroup R within tens of thousands of years, no matter WHAT the values of the other STR markers are. An analogy goes something like this:
Haplogroup A is "cat" and haplogroup R is "dog." They are not related within tens of thousands of years even if both have STR markers for brown fur, four legs, and a tail.
This is FTDNA's haplogroup tree. I hope the link works here. If not, go to FTDNA's site, click on "SNPs are us" on the right of the page, then on "Download a detailed copy of the Y-DNA haplogroup tree" located about a third of the way down and in the center of that page.
I hope this has been a useful explanation of a complex subject. Please feel free to write me with any further questions, either here or off-list.

Greetings, I have read the book Operation Broken Reed by Lt. Col
Boyd. Three things promoted my interest: my grandmother was Malinda
Catherine Boyd; I am a veteran of the Korean War; and I served many
years in the intelligence service. Secret operations such as are
reported in this book always capture my attention. I wrote a book
review for publication in The Graybeards, the official journal of The
Korean War Veterans Association, Inc. The review will appear in a
future issue of that publication. I find it rather remarkable the
number of persons who served in the Armed Force and then entered the
ministry as did Lt Col Boyd and myself. Blessings, Jim Allen.
