  • Family Finder may be a more useful test for your purposes than a yDNA test. With Family Finder, you'll get a feature called MyOrigins. It gives an estimate by percentage of your ethnic/geographic ancestry.

    The percentages are only estimates and shouldn't be taken at face value or written...

  • I haven't read the Zalloua study recently, but my recollection is that he contends that "J2" is a Phoenician signature for yDNA. Granting him that his study is not recent and did not benefit from the more advanced yDNA tree we have today, it's ludicrous to say that "J2" represents...

  • Why are you so sure that your haplogroup indicates North African ancestry? As Armando pointed out. E-M35 is found throughout the Mediterranean area, including southern Europe. Perhaps an ancient paternal line ancestor in your tree came to England during the period of the Roman Empire, either from the...

  • If you're hoping to make a connection within the last 100 years, then autosomal DNA is far more useful than a yDNA test in the overwhelming majority of cases. The only exception is a male adoptee trying to at least find the surname of the unknown birth father or paternal grandfather. In those cases,...

    replied to Coupons question
    If you tried using the coupon at checkout, that's the problem. On the page that shows you what you've ordered and what the cost is there a not very obvious box beneath the cost. You're supposed to enter the coupon code in that box before proceeding to the checkout page....

    replied to mtdna & FF I'm confused
    mtDNA relates to ancestry in what's called the strict maternal line. The ancestors in this line are only these individuals - mother, maternal grandmother, maternal grandmother's mother, etc. mtDNA results don't relate to any other ancestors.

    Marietta gave you a link to a blog post about...

  • If you have ancestry from pre-1650 New England, you are in an endogamous community. It's a classic example, along with Ashenazi Jews and French-Canadians.

    The population of the early British settlers was small. This meant that mid to distant cousins were marrying each other over several...

    replied to Possible NON paternity?when?
    You're right. U106 is mainly a northern European haplogroup. It's not very common in southern Europe, including the Balkans and Italy. My U106 paternal line is from Sicily, so I know how uncommon it is there.

    If you've tested your yDNA at FTDNA and not yet joined the R1b-U106 Project...

    Since you publicly posted your kit number & password - not a wise thing to do! - I tried to log in and look at your results. The password doesn't work.

    You're making all sorts of charges of "fake" results & then give us a password that doesn't work....

    replied to whats up with in common
    Do you realize that, on average, 1st cousins share 12.5% of DNA that came from their common grandparents? This means that roughly 87.5% of your DNA is different than your cousin's DNA.

    This is one factor for what you're seeing as a lack of common matches with your cousin that your brother...

    replied to Trouble accessing project member forums
    Many projects restrict the ability to read and post to the project activity feed to project members. This is so members have privacy and can post e-mail addresses or personal information without having to worry about it getting beyond the project and its members.

    If the project you're...

    There is zero chance of an NPE. The original poster shares over 3,000 cM with his father. This clearly indicates they are father and child....

  • dna's excellent directions to you relate to entering information in the tabs on the page (my bold) that you've found. (You can enter birth location information for that ancestor in the box for his name.) They have nothing to do with the Family Tree section.

    You can manually enter a Family...

  • Your initial post mentions that your father's paternal side is German Mennonite. But, you also wrote that "I'm pretty certain that the Basque/Southern Europe comes from my father's side." The Basque live in northern Spain, which is in southern Europe.

    Why is it a mystery that...

  • The test that you want to order for yourself and the descendant of the man you believe was your grandfather is Family Finder. Its tests the 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes that are inherited from both the mother and father. So, there is no restriction as to who can take the test. It works with men...
