How do you actually interpret what Promethease is reporting to come up with a haplogroup? My report shows 4 Haplogroup-related entries in the topics section:
1) Haplogroup I (Y-DNA) - contains a single entry that says I'm M258-
2) Haplogroup R1b1b2g (Y-DNA) - contains an entry at says it is M222, but doesn't say if my genotype (A;A) is positive or negative, and the summary section when I pull up the page on SNPedia says "relevant to haplogroup R1b1b2e" (which one is it, R1b1b2e or R1b1b2g?). There are also two other entries in this section, but they just say common for Caucasians. I guess that might mean I'm negative for those, but it's not clear what that means.
3) Haplogroup Y (Y-DNA) - contains many entries, but most of them say nothing until you click "more", and even then just say "Haplogroup: ?", which doesn't tell me anything. When I pull up the pages on SNPedia the just say they distinguish haplogroups, but doesn't say in what way. A few of the entries say "[haplogroup: R1]", "[haplogroup: P]", "[haplogroup: F-R]", "[haplogroup: R]", "[haplogroup: R1]", "[haplogroup: IJ]", "common on affy axiom data". There is also a repeat of the M222 SNP (and I assume of the two blank ones as well) and another that says I'm M72-.
4) Haplogroups - appears to contain a repeat of everyting from the Haplogroup Y (Y-DNA) section.

There doesn't appear to be very much useful information entered into SNPedia for these, and I can't make heads or tails of it for trying to guess my own haplogroup.
