Y-111 Upgrade Offer

I just got and email from FTDNA offering an Y-111 upgrade for those who have done Big Y and Y-37/67 for $59/$39.

It says the link is specific to me and cannot be transferred. Expires 12/31.

I am a v2 and saw a chart recently the I have less than 100,000 SNPs in common with v5. I still get matches, so they must be imputing.

R-A287

I am negative for everything below this on the current FTDNA tree. It seems fairly rare, so I am guessing no further downstream SNP Packs will be developed and Big Y is my only option? Does anyone...

I believe the upgrade prices only appear once you have an FTDNA Dashboard page and select Upgrade. What appears there is based upon what tests you already have purchased.

I uploaded quite some time ago. Both Mom and I have over 500 matches, but only the highest ones are familiar. Their relationship predictions seem very optimistic.

Yes, completed. Negative for everything except A287. It seems uncommon.

Here I am guessing again, but I think the reason for requiring a Y test first is because that cost includes the DNA extraction. Y upgrades are less expensive for just this reason. It is likely that...

I am not sure, but am guessing that the $12.95 would apply only if you used our regular mail service (USPS) and the extra $35 was because you used FedEx. Perhaps, others can comment.

I only use Firefox for the message boards. I use Chromium for the DNA site and it works fine except for setting up the maternal & paternal matches. I had to use a very old version of Safari for that.

I doubt it. A GEDCOM is a specific type of transfer file. I am not familiar with Roots Magic, but I would be surprised if it could not create one. Look for an export options menu.

I think the reason for some sort of minimum order the 1st time is the cost of the DNA extraction. My son-in-law did a paid Family Finder transfer from AncestryDNA and has the upgrade button. It let...

I think at that time there were separate maternal and paternal GEDCOMs. This is probably an artifact of the company beginning with Y tests and later adding mt. I presume they adopted a one GEDCOM...

Not from clipped hair, only from the root. No matter, it is very expensive to extract and I do not believe any of the genealogical companies will even attempt it.
