    What if anything can be assumed if two men have a 37/37 match on a Y-37?

    Is it really as little as they simply had a common paternal ancestor as many as 1000 years ago?
    There is a lot that we don't know and nothing is set in stone. I believe that we are only at the tip of the iceberg stage. Every week brings something new.

      Not a match at Y111?
      Has the match tested Y111 also?

        That is a good question. That may be one of the reasons that he doesn't show as a 111 match.

          If he has tested at 111, it might mean that your matches at 37 and 67 were just a random coincidence and there is no actual match.

          This happens often in the R1b haplogroup. Some of my closest matches turn out to be L21 or U106, haplogroups, while I'm U152 haplogroup, a branch that split with those two haplogroups several thousand years ago.

          Sharing SNPs with a STR match will filter out the random chance matches. But even then it could still be a very distant match. My closest SNP match on FTDNA has a genetic distance of 27 with me.

          Ideally you have shared SNPs and good STR matches.
