It most often does, so the paper trail should be examined, and the autosomal test should be taken by your friend.

Context, context, context... A genealogical research? A police investigation?

Question A question for those with Y-DNA67 and Big Y

If you had received an upgrade offer to Y-DNA111 from FTDNA, did you enquire whether DNA would need to be used or markers 68-111 will be read from the raw Big Y data ?


Thank you - Mr. W.

Could you please tell us the haplogroups FTDNA had predicted for both of them?

Also, is any STR for your husband having a value of zero (0) ?

P.S.
Nothing unusual in the results.
