  • Y-DNA test upgrade?

    If my son only had about 10 matches on the 25 marker on the Y-37 test there is no reason to upgrade correct to the y-67? He has TONS of 12 but not a whole lot to go off up higher up.

    It is possible to have matches at 67 markers when you don,t have any at 37 markers.

    I'd wait until FTDNA announces a sale on the upgrade and then order the 37 to 67 marker upgrade.

    You never know when 37 marker matches might show up.

      Are all his matches Y-37 or have they tested more markers? It might always be that these matches might prove to be a better match with more markers. If they haven't tested then you'd not know.

        He doesn't have any y-37 matches at all.

          Read a previous post in this thread - http://forums.familytreedna.com/show...23&postcount=2 - which offers good advice.

            The reason it is possible to have matches at 67 when none at 37 is because 67 includes matches with more differences - you will not have matches at 67 with a 0-step difference if you do not have matches at 37 with a 0-step difference (etc).
