Why does my daughter share more X with my mother than with me?

Hi all

A comparison, on gedmatch, of the x chromosome between my mother and myself (I'm male) shows we share 196cM. My mother and my daughter also share 196cM. Unsurprising as I would have just...

Wow!

I think some of you must have had a bit too much Fourth of July or something. There's way too much harsh and judgemental language in this thread.

Why both? Wouldn't the SNP pack results just be a subset of BigY?

The autosomal test is the best test in this situation.

The scope of any yDNA testing is too vague to identify your biological father's family. (Unless both your brother and your biological father...

I'm waiting on my mum's results. Batch 758 eta 10-24 July.

Experience on my own tests; FF, mtDNA and y111, then, seperately, the R1b backbone SNP pack, are that they under-promise and over-deliver.

Angry Stop the Spam!

It appears to me that you can't share your test results with matches without also being bombarded with spam.

The former would be a primary motivator for participating in this site. The latter is...

Thanks Jim.

They're both on the paternal line. That's why they're candidates.

So which is the appropriate test? I don't want to fork out for another y111 if there's a better option.

Advice needed on further testing

Hi all,

I'm looking for clarity on who my paternal grandfather is.

I've tested Y111 and there was one Y67 result with the target surname at GD 7. Nothing with my legal surname.

Thanks, Gail.

Is this why Phylotree says "309.1C(C), 315.1C, AC indels at 515-522, A16182c, A16183c, 16193.1C(C) and C16519T/T16519C were not considered for phylogenetic reconstruction"?

Phylotree question

Hi all,

Phylotree has, on occasion, a branch with a mutation listed but no subclade reference for the node.

See the attachment for an example.

In this case is phylo saying that T152C! is a...

Sent my sample off before Christmas. FF, y111 and fullMT. Telling me I should have a result by the end of March!
