  • I went 3-for-3 this morning (free SNPs)

    I have been waiting for the results of three Genographic tests--2 for Polish relatives, 1 for a Slovenian friend. This morning I found that all three tests had completed; but all three were ambiguous as to haplogroup, and so (I think) I am getting a free SNP test on each of the three.

    I consider this a big win, not simply for the sake of the SNP tests themselves but for the implication: That all three people have unusual--i.e., interesting--DNA results. I await their final results with bated breath.

    Sally, having swallowed cheese,
    Directs down holes the scented breeze,
    Enticing thus with baited breath
    Nice mice to an untimely death.

    Not to burst your bubble, but their results may not be all that unusual. My grandfather needed a SNP test and I initially had the same thought as you. However, it turned out he had plenty of 12-marker matches, only some had been SNP'd as J1 while others had been SNP'd as J2. So they just couldn't predict one or the other for him.

      Will the pages show a green or red haplogroup once you transfer the results?

        That situation is still interesting, even though perhaps not unusual.

          Yes, I'm very happy about the results. It definitely was worth the $300. (I paid for all these myself.)

          And yes, once transferred, the results should show a green, confirmed haplogroup.

          My only worry is how I'm going to afford the $600 to upgrade all three to 67 markers. The typical attitude I have encountered among both family and friends is, "That's very interesting, Larry, but I'm not going to spend my own money on it." And I actually understand that. They are effectively saying, "Larry, that's your hobby, not mine."
