  • Tested Q-M242 no matches?

    Hi,

    I recently did a Y37 test and the predicted haplogroup was Q-M242. But I got no matches at all. So now I wonder now if I can find a chart with origin of the samples of FTDNAs database somewhere. Because I see Europe is overrepresented as to Asia and the Middle East ( at least thats what I think). Is the reason for no match that its a unique line or that some areas are underrepresented in the FTDNA database (btw also tried Ysearch and no serious mathces).

    Both. Even in undersampled areas, the most common lineages now show up as small clusters. But a rare lineage in an undersampled area may well be a singleton or even absent from our databases.
