Brunetmj, is your kit only a Y12 and not any higher like Y37? If so, you might consider upgrading. I have seen some kits that have certain mutations in their first 12 markers that make them not see the people they match at higher levels.

It is a 111 marker test. There are no exact matches at 12 markers or any other marker level.I now have a match because I tested my brother.
