Haplogroup I is found almost exclusively in Europe where it is represented in about 20% of the population, making it the second most common haplogroup in western Europe, after R1b.  Overall, Hg I has a broad European distribution, from the British Isles east to the Ural Mountains of Russia and south to Anatolia and the Mediterranean Sea.  Hg I is divided into two main subclades:  I1, which is the most common form of Hg I in northwestern Europe, and I2, which is the most common form of Hg I in eastern Europe.  In terms of frequency, subclade I2 is much less common than I1.

The I2b2 subclade, defined by the L38 (=L39) SNP, is discussed in depth by Belgian genealogist, H. De Beule.  The L38/39 clade is sometimes dubbed, "The Lichtensteiners," because of tests on 3000-yr-old skeletons found in a cave in Lichetenstein. 

I recommend our subjects join the Haplogroup I2b2 L38 Project at FTNDA.

Labels in white are the SNP mutations; percentages are the frequency of Haplogroup I in the population.  SNPs that appear on the map, but not in the chart at the left, are Haplogroup I1 SNPs.  Hopefully, the map will be updated to include the new L38 SNP.  In the interim,
Please see this map for the distribution of L38 [=L39].
So far, two members of the project are Hg I2, representing descendants of one near common ancestor.

Our two subjects are matching well at 67 markers, differing only on three relatively fast-mutating markers.  They have only a handful of low-level matches in other surnames; there only siginificant matches are with each other. 
#131067 has been deep SNP tested with these results:
M170+ M253- P215+ P37.2- P217+ M223- L39+
The positive result for M170 proves he is Haplogroup I.  The negative result for M253 proves he is not I1. The negative result for P37.2 proves he is not I2a. The negative result for M223 proves he is not I2b1.  The positive result for L39, a synonym of L38, proves he is I2b2
The entire L39 subclade has three characteristic markers (red table cells).  They appear to have experienced a recLOH event at YCA, where the 19 allele has overwritten the 21 allele most Haplogroup I are either 19,21 or the recLOH has gone in the other direction, that is, they are 21,21.  L39's are also 10 at DYS455, while most of I2 is 11 at that marker, and virtually all of I1 is 8 at that marker.

What constitutes a match?
Matches in other surnames are usually mere coincidence, so please ignore them I'll let you know when you shouldn't!
For 12 markers:  9 or less is a non-relative; 10-12, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 25 markers:  21 or less is a non-relative; 22-25, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 37 markers:  31 or less is a non-relative; 32-37, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 67 markers:  57 or less is a non-relative; 58-67, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 111 markers:  100 or less is a non-relative; 101-111, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For any test:  0 matching markers, please contact NASA.
