I know it is expensive, but I would recommend for anyone interested in SNPs just to take the Big Y. It will likely be the first & last SNP test a new participant will need to take.

The best thing to do is test a field of known close relatives of yours. Assuming there are no hidden adoptions, they will show up on each others match lists. By close, I mean siblings, parents,...

My father & I share 3,384 centimorgans. It sounds like I should go ahead & consider these unshared segments as belonging to paternal relatives.

If you are interested in R1b P312+, you should visit www.ytree.net

This site maintains a rather advanced means of tracking SNPs down fairly close to the present day.
