    Hi Barb,

    apparently you're weirder than me.

    Would you mind give us your 12 marker haplotype?

      I posted this to another thread yesterday and it probably applies here as well:

      If the other person tested more than 12 markers and then deselected the checkbox to be notified of 12-marker matches, then even the people he does match at 12 markers won't see the match either. Personally, I don't think this is a good idea and I've been meaning to write to FTDNA about this, because then it means that those who match him have no idea that they match him.

      When someone says they have no matches at all or very few matches at 12 markers, I've often wondered if they really DO have matches, but aren't seeing them because those people have already upgraded and chosen not to be notified of 12-marker matches.
      So Barb's brother may very well have at least 12-marker matches, but Barb can't see them because those people chose to hide their 12-marker matches, which in turn is hiding them from Barb as well. As I said above, I don't like this policy at all.

      Barb, I suggest uploading your brother's Y-DNA results to Ysearch.org and see if your brother has any 12-marker matches there. Though keep in mind that any 12-marker matches that do show on Ysearch probably fell apart at 25 and 37 markers, which is why FTDNA says you have no matches at those levels either.

        Should I turn my 12-marker matches back on, then?

        I turned them and the 25-marker matches off and have retained only 37-marker matches.

            It's up to you. My problem isn't with people turning off their 12-marker matches, it's with the fact that it causes their matches to not even be able to see that they match. It should be left up to each person to decide whether they want to see their 12 marker matches or not, rather than having the decision of one half the match affecting what the other person sees. This is something FTDNA would need to change in their programming.

              I didn't realize I was cutting some folks off from the pleasure, however temporary, of seeing some 12-marker matches.

              I'll turn 'em back on.

              I know I enjoyed seeing those.

              Now I'm really only interested in 37-marker matches, but I can activate my 12ers and 25ers again.

                Hi guys and gals! Sorry it took so long for me to get back...I had to work today....

                At any rate...thanks for all the reply's. Still no 12, 25 or 37 marker matches in FTDNA. My brother did upload his dna to y-search and there are a few (2)33 out of 37 matches...(I think it was 33) I havent checked since this morning. After reading all the info here, im going to go and look at his results again to make sure im reading everything right.

                Hey F.E.C. I concur....you just dont know how much <snicker>

                  Ok...figured it out...it was in his settings...

                  Please choose your preference for matching purposes:

                  I want to restrict the display of matches only to my Surname Project
                  I want my matches to be set against the entire database.


                  thanks to EVERYONE THAT HELPED!!!!!! That is what makes this board so special!!!

                      That's only when you're sober.

                      So most of the time you're okay!

                          • It still has a ways to go to catch Batch 147.

                            i went out with some friends again last night.
                            Canadian Beer and karaoke..yikes..

                            It was fun.

                              Good stuff, that Canadian beer.

                              I hope you and your friends sing better than I do.

                              This thread has the potential to pass good ol' Batch 147, since this is kind of an all-purpose thread.

                              Once all the results from Batch 147 come in, folks may give up on posting in its thread.

                              I'll try to keep it alive for sentimental reasons, but I won't be able to do it alone.

                              Where is a mushy, tearful smiley when you need one?
