Suzanne, there is a chart on the Paternal Lineages Tests page in the Learning Center that may be of interest to you. It shows the chance for how many generations away a match may be, by percentage (50%, 90% and 95%), for several Y marker level tests (12, 37, 67 and 111 - click on the tab for each to see). It doesn't show anything for more than a few markers difference for each, though. Here are some other pages in the Learning Center, with charts that show in more detail about further marker differences (beyond genetic distance of 3):I don't know if the GAGP project (Global Adoptee Genealogy Project) is the same as the one that the Learning Center mentioned, but it looks like a good one, and has some impressive names from the genetic genealogy world as administrators. I don't think you can go far wrong by joining it!
