fyi

They report values but do not explain their significance. Nor do they upload those values to YSEARCH. Separately some of us obtained "reads" privately before deciding whether to upload our results to...

Warnings

Perhaps. I don't know about 23andMe but I recall FT DNA providing what I would consider an adequate "informed consent" at the time of my FGS.

I wonder if the same were required of legislation ......

Cycles

These sorts of things wax and wane but never go away. The next time it comes up, make a personal phone call to the district office of each of your elected representatives. It is counted the...

Gd

The GD on this may be out of whack although the conclusion is not. When we first compared the GD was 2 out of 25 markers. All the GD appears on the last panel on a project transcription rather than...

DNA match confirms Family History

I am U198. Within the past 3 months I found another of the same surname who was 13 gd on 37 markers but had not yet taken the deep clade. That person took his deep clade. Based upon the predictors...

Country of Origin

Huh. Stumped me. I did not ask, come to think of it. :o

I copied this from their main page: "GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which comprises the...

Thanks, however

Thanks, tomcat. I had found that out in the 10 weeks since I posted the first message. I posted a follow up message the other day to mention some of what I had learned and how valuable posting to...

when you receive your FGS

consider GenBank. It has opened up a whole new word of info for me. On FT DNA (not complaining mind you) I have one public FGS. On GenBank I have 7 in genealogical time frame ... and the good...

Make that three votes

It would be a nice feature.

It would also be nice if more people knew and understood there is a significant value in taking the SNP tests.:o

wondering too

I suspect it is akin to the downside of some of my more favorite TV channels like History and discovery ... only so many reruns and repackages of the same thing. This whole business requires a great...

Yes there is a method

No, you cannot find matches by name. It is deliberately designed to foil that. However, yes, you can find that you have matches in genealogical time frame. Rucksack has a prior post on how. Using...

FGS numbers

I found it interesting that GenBank shows 6 FGS matches for me within genealogical time frame while FT DNA shows 1. I am aware of a privately held match that may or may not be on GenBank. I know...

social status preventing examination of genealogy

In the sense that more people don't because they are concerned about the label? I suspect there is some truth to that. There is certainly some truth that across the world y dna and surname do not...

Red face confirming

There was an urban legend about that when I was in college, something about a philosophy exam where the question was, why, and the answer was, because. Alternative explanation: the Gwen ate...

Fgs

It both helps and hurts that there are so few within my little group relative to yours. I don't really know where to take all this now. I have learned a lot, it seems to me, but there are limits...

Good comments

All points well taken and as noted earlier, it will soon be moot for me as I will eventually be posted in GenBank.

FGS results

There are two different major groups of R1b Ashkenazi, some with markers of a near eastern origin others without. But it seems those who work closest with this technology point out clearly that the...
