  • dys markers

    I put my 35 markers onto Ysearch some weeks ago.
    I received my 67 markers today.
    Attempting to put my new markers onto to Ysearch I was met with a page that didn't have spaces for the DYS numbers I rec'd from ftDNA? What is going on ?

    Searching around the sites I came across the following for those who are considered Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype.
    It begs the question should I have tested for 67 markers at all ? Should ftDNA have advised of this when I placed
    my order ?

    ( It appears that approximately 2.5% in Western European males share this most common genetic 12 marker signature and because of its very high frequency we always suggest that for genealogy purposes people in this group should only use our 25 or 37 marker test for their genealogy )

    I don't have the answer to your question, unfortunately. I am still waiting for my 67-marker upgrade (due August 21st).

    But I am glad to welcome you to the forum.

    Since you are evidently R1b1c, I would like to invite you to post over in the R1b Forum.

      Ysearch was updated to accept all 67 markers as of August 1, so you should be finding all your markers there. Additionally, you can "automatically" upload your markers from your Y-DNA Matches page (there's a text link that says Click here to upload to Ysearch.org). However, if your original Ysearch account was created directly at Ysearch rather than through FTDNA, then this option will end up creating a new account -- I haven't seen a way to sign in to Ysearch from FTDNA and have it update that account for you. But you can always create the new one and then delete the old one, if you want.

      This quote was from before the 67-marker test was available. They just meant that 12-markers is not enough for genealogy purposes because you get *too many* matches that are not very significant. You should test to *at least* 25 or 37 markers (including the new 67 markers) to get more genealogically-significant matches.
