    Does anybody out there have any exact matches or any matches in the Y dna for that matter?

    I'd say on the 12 marker test, most people have lots of exact matches; I have 121 of them myself. I only have four high resolution matches (23/25), no exact matches at the 25 marker. Have you taken the test and not received any matches?

      It just depends on your markers (genes), in our WEST project, one participant has 116 exact matches on the 12 marker test. Another participant has zero matches, but he also has a very rare gene. If you have one or two rather rare markers, then the chances of a match are reduced, however in those cases, when you do find a match there will be a good probability that you are related (if the other person has the same surname). A couple of web sites give some information on the frequency of the Y-DNA markers, have you checked your haplotype against those?

        The Blair DNA Project has 6 sets of participants with 25 for 25 matches. The first set consists of 10 participants who match on all 25 markers. The second set is 3 participants who match on all 25 markers. The other 4 sets are 2 participants each that match on all 25 markers.

        We also have 18 participants (which includes set 1) which match at least 24 for 25 with each other. These 18 participants plus 2 others appear to descend from the original Blair of Blair who goes back to approximately 1200.

          I’m involved with four different projects, Barrett, Bates, Holden, & Powell. There are both 12/12 matches and 25/25 matches in each group. There are also people in each group who don’t have any matches.

            Bates and Witt DNA Project

            I maintain a webpage for my uncle, Wayne Bates, Bates project. http://www.bfoov.org/DNA/dnaresults.asp
            The Bates page represents 2 different organizations, one, the Bates Family of Old Virginia and the Bates Association of New England. Notice that in at least several instances, one can clearly see the branch lines, first at 12 and then at 25 markers. (Have put a Success stories link at the top of the page)

            Another project is the Witt/Whitt DNA Project, run by David Whitt.
            http://www.witts-end.org/WittDna2.htm - this project set out to prove that the descendants of John Witt m Ann Daux (John, William, Richard, and Edward) were of the same line and most have 25 markers. You can see that the theory has been proven as well as showing that two other distinct lines are NOT related. David Whitt required 25 markers on the baseline.

              Yes I have taken the test.....no matches on the y dna

                Thanks I will check out the web sites. I do have matches in the theoretical haplotype I have not taken the test to confirm the suggested haplotype. This DNA business has a big hook in it just about as big as TRS 80 color computer.

                  My husband has an exact match in REO database. (1) Exact match out of (80) testee's in the 25/25 High Resolution Test. We have never recived the name of this match. So at present we assume the match(testee) decided not to give out their name. We wish that if that is so, that FTMDNA would acknowledge the match and say that the individual decided to stay anonymous, or that it was part of a project that is private. It would at least keep us from wondering what's going on. Ladybug

                    My apology to the forum and Max, Max did send me a message saying my husband's match was in DR. Hammer's study, so therefor no name of who it is. I still wish that, that info was listed as such on the person's personal DNA page. Then those senior moments would not be so embarassing. Ladybug
