There are two major branches in this group:
- M205 (Middle East and Europe with more likely origin in Middle East)
- Z2453 (Middle East and Europe with more likely origin in Middle East)
The two minor branches are:
- M102(xZ534) (Uzbekistan)
- Z593(xM241) (Scotland)
There are two main goals:
1) Advance research into phylogeny and geographic origins of: J-M205, J-Z2453, J-M102(xZ534) and J-Z593(xM241)
2) Provide assistance to members in interpreting their matches and finding Y-DNA relatives.
