    Absolutely this!

    My Big Y results split the branch of my part of the tree. As more people from my patrilineal line test the more "novel" SNPs will be added to the haplotree.

    I recommend Big Y-500, if you can afford the expense it is well worth it, especially when coupled with an appropriate Haplogroup or surname project.

    Yep! Last day of the current sale. If you are going to do Y-DNA500, you will save a lot by ordering today:

    The test includes Big-Y, which is good. I do not know if you can get Y-500 alone, but I do not think it would be of much use without Big-Y.

    Normally FTDNA uses your original sample which it has stored.

    If the sample is degraded or not enough, a new kit will be sent, but usually that is not necessary.
