    replied to Early Bird "Sale"
    Be grateful that the upgrade is cheaper than it used to be. 3-4 years ago, the upgrade from Y-111 to Big-Y was $500 and there was no option to go straight for Big-Y. If you were a first time tester, you thought that Y-111 was everything until the results for that came back and then the Big-Y upgrade...

    replied to y-111 results timeframe
    The learning center page https://learn.familytreedna.com/test...-test-process/ says 3-6 weeks after being batched is typical. There have been some messages about delays due to COVID-19 disruptions adding 2-4 weeks to tests depending. Those disruptions could be anything from staff to...

  • Yes, Y-DNA mutates much faster than mtDNA does. Y-DNA has an estimate of 2x10-3 per generation for STRs (Y-12 to Y-111 testing), while mtDNA has an estimate of 1.05x10-7 per generation of a mutation happening. So that is orders of magnitude higher chance of a mutation happening in Y-DNA in a given...

    It is likely that you and Dano are both related to this lady, whether through some common ancestor of hers or at the most distant point where each of you is related to her through each of her parents. So something like your 4th great-grandparent's cousin and Dano's 4th great-grandparent's cousin had...

    replied to Need help with a puzzle
    If Dano only shares 9 cMs with this lady that is inherited from a common ancestor, then he only has 9 cMs to pass on to your daughters. Since your daughters share 21 cMs, then the likely reason is that you share DNA with this lady. If that is not the case, then it could be that the lady, Dano, and...

  • Stevo, I'm not sure if you have seen https://www.abroadintheyard.com/maps...oms-and-y-dna/ a site with some basic European and DNA overview, but some nice and interesting maps. It looks like they have a similar location for the homeland of R1b-L51. Since it doesn't have...

  • As Jim says that will give you the major branch, just as in 20 questions the first question of "Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral?" will get you "Animal" when the full answer is a Siamese cat. In order to get all the way down to that last twig at the end of the branch you need the most...

  • Stevo, you could contact the genealogy society library for the area where Augustine Stevens and Sophia Young lived and see about sending them a copy to preserve. If you feel that multiple genealogy libraries are relevant places for the information, you could send it to more than one. If you ware worried...

    replied to FamilyFinder not working RIGHT!!!
    georgian1950 what you describe makes sense. For your mother, FTDNA is saying that their relationship guess is that she is either your mother or your daughter on your kit. On your mother's kit it is saying that you are either her father or her son. So both relationship guesses know that it is a parent...

  • Yes, with a Big Y 700 test you will see any matches who meet the criteria to be a match at whatever level they tested and meet the criteria (Y-12, Y-25, Y-37, Y-67, Y-111, Big Y 700) since the Big Y 700 includes the Y-111 test. So if for example your biological father only tested Y-37, he would show...

    replied to Y-DNA SNP kits
    The times I have seen people pay it that maybe makes sense is where someone matches Y-111 and surname to someone who has done Big Y 700 and their tree says that they should have this one SNP since their paper trail goes back to the same person as someone else grouped under that SNP and there are 2 or...

    replied to Archiving for the future
    Yes, making digital copies of pictures and then continuing to store both does keep volumes but if either one ends up damaged there is a secondary copy. Sometimes the old papers and pictures can be donated to library archives in order to be stored and then can be used for research by future generations....

  • But what about those towns where they moved the town after the railroad or highway went through? Your ancestor could have written where the picture was, but now the location is off since the town moved a mile or two since the picture was taken. The other thing is when there are two or three towns...

    replied to Paternal tests
    Only men have a Y chromosome, that's what makes them male instead of female. So if that is what you are thinking of for paternal, called patrilineal, it is only through the man each generation back. If you are talking about Family Finder, then paternal would be any ancestor of your father.

    replied to Fun of finding family
    So does Mary Jane's death record just say something like Mr. Duncan as father and mother unknown? I had one of those, but found an obituary that had a sister's name which was the key.
