  • Close match at 25 & 37, but not at 12

    I have a Y-DNA match at genetic distance 2 on Y-DNA37 and 1 on Y-DNA25 but the individual does not appear at all at Y-DNA12. Can someone help me understand why this might be so?

    This is strange. At GD 1 at 25 it should show in YDNA 12 since a GD of 1 is allowed there.....

      You have other matches showing at Y-12? Because if not, check your account settings > notifications preferences so Y-12 is activated. Another thought is that only exact matches (0 genetic difference) are shown at the Y-12 level, unless you are in a project. Then you can have a genetic distance of 1. I can't find where that is explained in the FTDNA Learning Center right now, but I believe it is still that way.

      The FTDNA Learning Center has a page with the question "If somebody doesn’t match me at 12 markers, how can they match me at a higher testing level?" That page explains why you could have a match who does not appear at Y-12, but can appear at a higher level.

        GD 1 matches at Y-12 are only shown if you are in the same project, nothing strange here.

          Ah, that's why they suddenly showed up for me.

            Yes, I said the same thing in my post.
