My Y-67 results came back today, and weren't particularly helpful at all. I landed as generic European R-M269, which basically just means that I have to order more tests to actually find out anything I didn't already know.

So my question is: do I need to upgrade to Y-111 and buy an SNP pack, or can I get away with just one or the other because there's overlap in what they test? I'm on a limited income, so upgrading all the way to a Big Y is not an option right now.

If you have not joined this project yet, you probably should:


They will group you and find a subclade if possible. If not, you will at least get some recommendations on what to test next.
