No matter what list I look at mostly all men are a 10 for that one, occasionally you can get an 11, but my Son has an 8
You might be well served by SNP testing.

From time to time, Big Y test is on sale at up to $100 less.

Smile Nearly there?!

Hi Everyone, This is an update of my threads, 'when I was reasonably optimistic ' then we had a 2nd cousin for my Son (they shared the same Great Grandfather ) autosomal results, We now have just tested the Great Grandson of this same gentleman with a Y test , we are feeling VERY positive, its been a long uphill journey but well worth it, the wonders of DNA are amazing.
