  • 2 DNA questions

    1st: Where can I find FTDNA's list of fast mutating markers? I've looked everywhere, but can't find them listed.

    2nd: When it says "...within the genealogical time frame." How long is that?

    Thanks for any answers. FTDNA could do a better job with explanations.

    The Wikipedia article: List of DYS markers, has mutation rates. Like any information there, its veracity is subject to dispute, but citations are linked in the table, for easy reference.

    They're not referring to any specific amount of time, just comparing it to an anthropological time frame, say hundreds vs. thousands of years.

      I don't know if FTDNA use these rates, but here is a complete list:
