    Being someone (an L21) who has virtually no matches I have tried to get a sense of the "amounts of matching" that people expirence. I think for some it depends on nationaility. A UK type nationaility probably has greater odds of getting matches as compared to Continental L21's like myself (French) . I think it's all a matter of who is in the database. French/Germans/Italians/Spanish are not well represented.

    I'm a fairly common haplotype (See signature below) and have zero exact matches at twelve markers and only one at a distance of one that vanishes at higher marker counts. I'm upgrading to 111 and hoping I'll start to close the distance to some of my matches instead of continuing to see it widen.

    Thank you for your quick response Stevo. I read the link to WAMH and then tried to look for the badge...I don't see it anywhere. My husband has 2 differences with WAMH: DYS385a and DYS439.

    STR husband...WAMH

    DYS393 13...13
    DYS390 24...24
    DYS19** 14...14
    DYS391 11...11
    DYS385(a-b) 12-14...11-14
    DYS426 12...12
    DYS388 12...12
    DYS439 11...12
    DYS389I 13...13
    DYS392 13...13
    DYS389II*** 29...29

    I'm really looking forward to getting the 37 marker results now.

I'm waiting for results for the 37 marker test and am curious what to expect.

    I searched my husband's surname at 12 markers - no match. Ancestral matches are all over the map but in terms of numbers, it looks like England:

    Exact match/total:
    England 58
    United Kingdom 25
    Scotland 15
    Ireland 11

    Would this mean he has "English modal"? His father's line was supposed to trace to Ireland but I started getting the feeling it was English based on evidence I was finding. Would this confirm my suspicions or is it too early to tell? If he get's no surname matches at 12, what are the chances he'd get a surname match at more markers?
    Sounds like he could have a haplotype close to the WAMH (Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype).

    You'll find out much more from your 37-marker upgrade, and an upgrade to 67 markers would be even better.
