  • More exact matches than GD+ matches?

    I'm surprised to see that I have 197 exact matches at 12 markers and 16 at GD 1.
    This does seem most unlikely do you not think?

    If you're talking about the matches you see on the My FTDNA "Y-DNA Matches" page, I believe you only see the 12 marker, GD=1 matches from within the project you have selected in the upper left corner of the page. In other words they only show you those GD=1 matches at 12 markers from within a specific project. If you're in more than one surname project and you select a different one, you should see that list of names change accordingly.

      I have many project members who have over 1,000 exact 12 marker matches. Most of them were gone by the time they tested to 37 markers.

        Wow. I thought it was cool having 4 exact matches at 12!
        (None of whom survived to even 25, nor did they resurface at 37 or 67.)
