    Is MidEast origin of Ashkenasi Jewry totally untraceable due to age of ancestry?
    Since many papers claim that there is evidence of Middle Eastern ancestry for todays Ashkenazic Jews, why is that not obvious in the DNA roadmap. Most of it is European Jewish Jewish yet mixed with Non Jewish Europeans as is expected when being wanderers on the world stage. Yet no evidence of Middle...

    Contact - Email address's
    I've noticed of late an increase of testers email address's not appearing in our match list. For example, my most recent page has 5 folks with only 'mailto:' - no email address. I dont know if the email address is no longer compulsory or what is going on but we should at least have the opportunity to...

    How to explain no matches at 25 markers
    I hope someone can point me in the right direction. I have a new 5th cousin "Y" test that matches mine and 2 other cousins at 37 markers with a GD of 4. But this kit has zero matches to anyone at 25 markers (Message: "No matches found at this level of testing"). There are 234 matches...

    finding forums
    When I first tested DNA years ago with FtDNA I found the forums very helpful. I still enjoy coming and asking questions as they arise or just reading what other people are doing in their searches or answering a question. In my opinion the forums and help made me a loyal customer to FtDNA and thus I...

    The thrill of the chase or I love a good hunt.
    I "love" getting distant cousins whose trees if they have one have practically no information. Actually, I had fun today with a possible 4th to 6th cousin (predicted at 4th) on Ancestry. She had 4 names on her tree, her father's full name, his mother's maiden name, her mother's parents'...

    DNA Hlogroups from Family Finder matches
    just to inform you I'm managing this collaborative genetic genealogy project:
    The basic idea behind this project is to share ONLY the YDNA haplogroups of your Family Finder matches.
    No matters if you are male or female. Just YDNA haplogroups of the matches...

    Expanding yDNA Match List to Include Entire Macro Clade
    Running into an aggravating situation. I am using yDNA for deep ancestry research as long as 2,000 years or more. The problem is that the yDNA match list doesn't produce matches that are this far back in time. The way to fix this would be a minor tweak to your yDNA search algorithm which brings up all...
