I see now that Y24895 is 17840874 G to T per

I also see that it shows up in the Big Tree group of R-8992312-T-C

So, for that case it was the 2nd scenario that I had presented of Alex simply using different names for some of the same SNPs. More specifically Alex doesn't have a shorthand name at all. Either way, Alex didn't use the name that YFull uses.

Right, which is why I had stated there is more information and granularity in his [Alex's] tree as far as DF27 branches and where certain DF27 SNPs are found.

Since Alex's service is free there are more kits which leads to the more information and granularity of the DF27 tree. Alex's service is also normally faster and easier. There is no need to request a BAM file and the VCF file is readily available for download from the FTDNA page.

I already had the numbers since I have macros to pull the data but I hadn't posted them because Stephen Parrish seemed more interested in the SNPs one level downstream from DF27. I don't understand why he would be more interested in that than other information such as almost all of the same ones from YFull being found at Big Tree and more kits at Big Tree than YFull meaning more subclades below the SNPs one level downstream from DF27 at Alex W's Big Tree.
