Disappointing Results

Completed my Y-DNA test quite a few years back and had no direct matches - Certainly nobody with the same surname.

I did however have a match at a GD of 2, and the Tip report was encouraging.

I have a Y-DNA Test.

Both my parents have taken an AtDNA test for me (initially with 23andMe, but transferred to FTDNA).

Can somebody please explain to me the shape of the Chromosome browser.

Each bar has a tapered in divide at some point along its length, but nowhere does it tell you what this represents.

Is there any way to combine the results from 4 siblings (and perhaps a couple of cousins from one side) to try and recreate the majority of deceased parents DNA??

I do know of a second cousin (the son of my father's cousin) all still alive. That would pin my line back to our Gt Grandfather (b 1883). I did enquire once whether they would be willing to take a...

Close match - wrong name

Following my Y-DNA 67 test, I had no complete matches and none at all with my surname. I was intrigued by a 65/67 match which seemed close enough to have potential. Is it necessary to have a...

I have 2 36/37 matches, one of which has tested to a greater resolution and we have a 65/67 result, but none of us share a surname.

Is the prediction of our MRCA identical whether we have the same...

No response from match

I have a close match with an individual (with a different surname).

YSearch to Ancestry

In the absence of Y-Search.org, is the ability to manually enter FTDNA results on AncestryDNA a similar substitute??
