Bob...My experience was very similar to yours. 9/12 in the first 12, so it went unreported by FTDNA. It dropped one more by 25 so still under the radar. Then it matched the rest of the way for a...

I agree, and I would suggest that the 6 months occur prior to ordering a test. Read Sykes, Wells or any of the other books recommended by FTDNA. Know in advance exactly what you will be getting and...

If the majority of the 7 mismatches occur in the early panels, say something like a 9/12 and a 20/25, FTDNA would not list this individual on your page as a match. It is possible (likely) that you...

I had a 9/12 match with another individual. FTDNA doesn't even report 9/12 matches. Coincidentally we both upgraded to 67 markers and appeared on the radar screen as a much more intriguing 63/67...

I had a 9/12 which became a much more interesting 63/67 match when we upgraded. I guess it all depends on where the mismatches occur.

I've always wondered if the panel 1 markers were chosen...

That's interesting. I also had a 33/37 match with a different surname. Since both our surnames and our genealogical paper trails point to the same general geographic region, this was intriguing. The...

Many thanks for your insights!

I have sat and looked at Ken's spreadsheet for hours, but nothing seems conclusive to my bleary, untrained eyes. Right out of the gate I have 15,15 at 385a,b, which...

Thanks for your thoughtful response.

It's a bit of both actually. In my specific case it is the difference between a 15 and 16 at DYS 458. If I read Nordvedt correctly, 15 seems to be the modal...

Thanks Judy, this is immensely helpful. But I can't help but wonder how many GeneBase results are/were uploaded to YSearch with incorrect (i.e. non-converted) values.

You need to add a value of +1 at DYS 455 to compare Genebase results to FTDNA's. I asked about others but never got a reply.

According to the conversion page on YSearch, older tests at Relative...

Genetic dist. of 2 at same marker?

A suspected distant cousin and I tested our Y-DNA. The match was identical except at DYS 458, which FTDNA shows as red indicating it is more volatile. Fine. But my allele is 16 and his is 14. Going...
