  • 36 out of 37 match

    My test is a 36 out of 37 match with a preexisting test. What does that tell me about the relationship between my known ancestor and the person that was a 36 out of 37 match?

    Keep it as simple s possible please.

    Please try reading the following two short items from the Family Tree DNA Learning Center

    https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/...ionship-match/ Expected Relationships with Y-DNA STR Matches

    https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/...-relationship/ How do I tell how closely I am related to a Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) match? What is FTDNATiP?

    And then try to use TiP . Look for the TiP icon https://www.familytreedna.com/img/my/icons/TiP_icon.gif next to your match name and click it.

      The TiP icon is based on averages using known genealogies and the markers they had. Just like any Bell curve you could be an outlier or a one-off. In order to rule that you could to ask your match to get a 111 marker test and a BigY test and you would need to do the same. If you read the following thread you can see instances where even 67 marker matches don't hold up with a BigY test at http://forums.familytreedna.com/showthread.php?t=37531. There is also an example of 67 marker matches not holding up at 111 markers at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/.../messages/2435
