    Thank you so much Elise! It couldn't have been more clear. My only match shows up until Y-DNA37 (I have up to 67) which is what is written next to his name. So I guess that any common ancestor is still extremely distant.

    Thanks again for your time!

    It only changes to confirmed when a SNP test is done. It's perfectly normal to have a predicted haplogroup.

    What marker level is this match at? If he's at 12 markers, then yes, a very distant relation -- especially if he has tested more than 12 markers and doesn't match you at the higher levels. Look in the column to the right of his name -- it'll say Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25, Y-DNA37, etc).

    While there are definitely people from Greece in the FTDNA database, the fact that you don't have matches from Greece indicates diversity in the population -- you don't all descend from a single recent common male ancestor And it also indicates that no one else from your direct paternal line has tested with FTDNA yet.

    Ancestral Origins: These two other matches may not have signed the release form when they tested, so their names and contact info can't be shown on your Matches page (and they can't see you either). You'll still see their info on the Ancestral Origins page, since that's anonymous.

    Matches Maps: Only shows matches who signed the release and have entered geographic coordinates for their most distant ancestor's origin. Since you only have the one match on your Matches page, if he's not showing there, then he hasn't filled in his coordinates yet. (If you haven't done this yet yourself, you can do so from either the Matches Maps page, or from My Account -> Most Distant Ancestors.)

    SNP Maps: You'll need to zoom in on this page to see the information. You can select any haplogroup to see clusters of the reported origins of customers in the FTDNA database with that haplogroup.

    No bug, some people just don't have many matches. But the database is constantly growing, with new customers joining all the time. So it'll require some patience, but WHEN you do get a new match (be optimistic!), you'll be notified by email.

    In the meantime, you should join the E-M35 project, if you haven't already. E-L117 is just another name for the E-M35 branch of the tree.

    A very similar problem from me too:
    I've ordered the Y-DNA 67 and since the first markers came out I had E-L117 haplogroup as "predicted". All my markers were completed some time ago and I only have one match going up to 37 markers, while my haplogroup is still "presumed positive".
    So, since everyone here has a similar (but not exactly identical) problem, I would like to ask:

    a) am I going to have at some point the free backbone testing until my haplogroup is confirmed? No SNPs added for the time being.
    FTDNA only predicts basic haplogroup assignment, if they can not confidently predict they then run a free backbone test and you receive a confirmed. But they look to be confident in predicting yours so no backbone test will be done.

    Thank you!
    See following link on which matches appear on your match page based on the number of differences (Genetic Distance)for each level.

    https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/...-matches-page/

    and Genetic Distance reference charts in regards to relationship predictions

    12 marker

    37 marker

    67 marker

    111 marker

    Strange that they do not offer and SNP test for DF27 which is good chance I will need. I will hold my money until they get their Y straightened out.

    FTDNA actually tried that for a couple of days. But their automatic algorithm is nowhere near as accurate as human evaluation--project members were ordering totally unnecessary SNPs. So FTDNA turned off their suggestion algorithm for the time being.

    The Y-DNA111 test, by itself, only tests STRs (markers), not SNPs. Thus, it can only give you a predicted haplogroup. If you do not have any SNP results, I suggest you consult your haplogroup project administrator on an appropriate SNP to test.

    Or take advantage of the current discount sale, and order the Big Y.

    Thank you.
    mtDNA: T2c1d1
    Y-DNA: R-P312?

    You might as well forget the whole thing until they get the bugs out of the new Haplotree system.

    LOL I am now back to predicted K-M9. I'm beginning to think I'm getting real-time updates on my backbone testing. If O-L27 disappeared...does that mean it tested negative? I must learn to be patient

    This is strange, however, so I'll ask engineering to check it out.

    Thanks,

    M9+, M175-, M186-, M231-, M45-, M61- .. I'll send you my password if you wanna take a look,, I won't mind..


    I feel like a Dinosaur! no matches anywhere on the face of earth ..


    thank you Elise, I really appreciate your help...

    also I don't have any matches at all!
