  • Which version is my father's kit?

    It was bought in April 2016.

    Ftdna technically only 1 version. They do have 3 different versions but there is no big difference between them. Just slightly less snp tested. Not like they other companies which versions tested a whole new set of snps for the one they no longer tested perviously

      Exactly.

      However, here are some additional details in case you are confused by something you had googled out... Initially, FTDNA did use a different technology, let's name it a Version 0. That was only for kits bought in 2010 or earlier, and everybody who had that test was rerun on Version 1 free of charge within a year. Again, detailed dates can probably be googled out.

        In regards to the "chip versions" at FTDNA (autosomal testing), I can give you rough dates as I have family members test between 2012 - 2016

        Tested 05/13/2012, 08/10/2012, 11/22/2012, 12/16/2012,
        707269 Autosomal SNPS, 17798 XDNA SNPs

        Tested 08/01/2013, 08/12/2013, 11/06/2013, 12/06/2013
        696752 Autosomal SNPs, 17796 XDNA SNPs

        Tested 01/04/2014, 02/25/2014,
        693733 Autosomal SNPS, 17796 XDNA SNPs

        Tested 05/27/2016
        698193 Autosomal SNPs, 17812 XDNA SNPs

        All have an overlap with the others of around 690000 (identical Tested SNPs)

        Where as other testing companies versions have much lower overlap with there previous versions.
