Group #21 has tested out by the FTDNA and Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor as "I1 (M253)"
"Adam" -> M168 -> M89 -> M170 -> M258 -> M253
- Previously classified as "I1a" Family Tree DNA now classifies this group as "I-M253"
According to the population study by Rootsi, et. al. (2004), the I1 haplotype group is most dense in Norway, and the I haplotype group is most dense in the area of Croatia. (In 2004, the current I1 classification was I1a.) Population density is an indication of origins.
From Table 1 in the Rootsi paper, the I1a haplotype ( M253 - now I1 ) is most dense in Norway, South Sweden, Saami, North Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, and France (Low Normandy).
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
