Frpm over 6000 matches at 12 markers to 3 at 37 markers.

My father in laws Y37 test finally finished after 3 months. He went from over 6000 matches at 12 markers and over 1250 matches at 25, to 3 at 37 markers. A ninth Y cousin has a gd of 3 at 37 (two of which are on cdy a and b). The other two have a GD of 4 at 37. Wow. What a difference those last twelve markers made.

I can understand your feelings. I have 3264 matches at 12 markers, 230 at 25 markers and only 2 at 37 markers. The 2 at 37 are both at GD=4.

As you can see from my signature, I am in one of the most prolific haplogroups, so I guess these results are to be expected.

Think yourselves lucky.

I have zero matches at 37 markers, zero matches at 25 markers and zero matches at 12 markers! It's that DYS19 = 18 that's the real problem.
