  • which Y-Dna test to order

    I have an uncle who wants to test to what haplogroup he belongs too - this will give my mother and myself answers to our Eichelberger line. Question, which YDNA test would be best?

    Well can you qualify a bit as to what you mean?
    Are you looking to find other males with that surname?
    I think at least a 37 marker test is minimal with 67 markers more certain.
    Bare in mind, a marker test will only yield a major haplogroup. You have to pay more money to get to a subclade level .
    For example my 37 marker test yielded a haplogroup of R1b1a2 - M269
    This group covers just about all of western Europe .
    I then took the deep clade test to get to R1b1a2a1a1b4 most frequently found in the Uk.
    I hope this helps some

      I just ordered my Uncle the 37 marker test - he's my mother's brother and with this test we'll know what Haplogroup our Eichelberger men belong too. My grandfather is deceased so Uncle Steve was our next best option.

      I manage the Eichelberger surname project here on FTDNA so his results will give me a lot of information to work with.
