I have not seen this. What I have seen at times is that the order may change for some kits with perfectly matching STR results. I see the colorized chart GAP page so often that I know what order...

Is it possible that you come off too strong to them? It may help if you ease your way in with them in case they are completely new to genealogy as a whole. I agree that the ads will likely make...

I never add the plus after a haplogroup (like I-F1997). If I did, it would be only when the SNP is by itself (F1997+). If the hyphen/minus is in front, well I never see that happen actually. I would...

In this case "hg" is haplogroup. As for O3, that would be a specific haplogroup. As you may see over at ISOGG, they still use the old style of haplogroup naming. If you go to ISOGG...

If you only tested at Y12, some of these matches could be false leads. Testing higher to at least Y37 is advisable. I've seen a few kits that have one or two STR changes in the the first 12 STRs that...
