Group #20 has tested out by the FTDNA and Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor as "I"
"Adam" -> M168 -> M89 -> M170 -> M258 -> P19 -> P38 (Shorthand: I-M170)
- Originally classified as "I1b" Family Tree DNA now classifies this group as "I."

According to the population study by Rootsi, et. al. (2004), the I haplotype group is most dense in the area of Croatia. (The current I classification was I1b in 2004.) Population density is an indication of origins.
From Table 1 in the Rootsi paper, the I haplotype (then I1b P37 SNP in 2004) is most dense in Bosnia, Croatia, Moldova, and Slovenia (the Balkan region).
Haplotype Groups were re-classified by Family Tree DNA in May, 2008.
This affected the following existing groups:
R1b1c became R1b1b2
I1a became I1
I1b became I
I1c became I2b
E3b1a became E1b1b1
