Michelle, it's a Full Mitochondrial Sequence (FMS) test. re: https://learn.familytreedna.com/faq-items/full-mitochondrial-sequence-fms/

Phillip, this is Theresa Struss, and I am niece to Richard Crowe whose DNA and geneology I am trying to trace. We may actually be members on another social media site (I think). Do you use the same DNA sample to do the Big Y test or does my uncle need to do a new test. I was thinking of paying the upgrade.

Theresa, yes, FTDNA will use the same sample they have on hand if it's still viable. Otherwise, they will send out a new kit with the same kit number to the tester of record.

Hello, I just got my dad's results for his Y-111 test and now all the Y results have disappeared and only one match shows up and he has nothing in his tree. I am confused as to what I do next? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

Tracy, the reason you only have one match at 111 markers is because none of the other Blue color coded Crows have tested to 111 makers yet. I see your one match at 111 makers has tested beyond 111 STR markers and has done FTDNA's Big Y 700 that tested his SNPs. You might want to consider the Big Y for next test if you want to learn about your Crowe deep ancestry. I expect FTDNA may have a sale on upgrades in August. However, before you spend the money for a Big Y 700 test, I would suggest you consider learning ,ore about the Big Y tests at Bill wood site on Face Book; https://www.facebook.com/groups/ftdna.big.y/ or by reading up on the Big Y. There are some great books available and other sites as well. Good luck in your quest.

Greetings Crow(e)s! My paternal aunt recently did AncestryDNA and it appears to show that she (and I) have autosomal matches with descendants of Zerah Phelps (1766–1819) and his first wife Deborah Crow (m 1789). We had Zerah in our tree because he married our ancestor Betsey as Betsey's SECOND husband, but the DNA match is unexpected because we're descended from a child of Betsey's FIRST marriage and Zerah should only have been a STEP-relation. We have no idea where Betsey came from or what her birth name was, so I am considering the possibility that Betsey could have been a sister of Zerah's first wife, Deborah Crow. (Yes, I know other explanations are possible, including sneakin'-and-creepin'! But we have many autosomal DNA matches to Betsey's first husband's ancestors. And it was not unusual for widowed in-laws with young children to marry each other.) Deborah is said to be descended from John Crow (c1606-1686), origin unknown, one of the original founders of Hartford, Connecticut in 1639. The documentation from John to Deborah gets pretty terrible in the 1700s, and I have been trying to sort out who all the Connecticut Crow families were. Are any of y'all's colorful Y-groups associated with this Connecticut branch?

Hi there...I am just wondering if you can match with just autosomnal dna or do you need the Y group match too? My Gedmatch kit no is AV7568128 and I also have an Ancestry account too.

I know all of mine are from the Knockaderreen/Lackareagh Beg/More and Cloonfadda area but I also had heard of one lot going to Galway. I am fairly sure of our tree but only have it back to about 1780 ish. No mother for my 3 x great grandfather. My main aim is to try and find back along his line and three of his siblings. We have several of them sorted, as a few came out to Australia and one to USA, after a spring Assize in Ennis in 1848. Two nephews have been ostracized by family, for testifying against my 3x great grandfathers brother, for organising a hit on local tax collector for landlord. We have had professional genealogists looking for them but believe they had their names changed. There were others involved also but they stayed in Ireland as far as we know.

going to see dad tomorrow and have a talk to him about this. Am happy to go for the best test to work this out and see who else we are related to. We do have another line of Crowe's who came out here but haven't been able to find the link even though the families were known to each other and spent time together.

Hi Phillip, I was at dad's today and he is keen to do the Y-DNA test but is a pensioner so can't afford the test. He has done a normal dna test for Ancestry but I don't have a copy of it. Can you let me know how we can sort this out.

Michelle, there is probably a sale coming up in August. That should help some with his Y-test.

For those Crows grouped in colors that are not represented with very many BigY700 kits, I cant stress enough in having your kit upgraded to the BigY, along with a close male relative test to the BigY as well. This approach brings your terminal haplogroup into modern times, and you can better determine genetic distance. Entry level Y-DNA testing does not do much for your family tree in the last 5-10 generations. Having two members test in your immediate family will brake up the private variants in your block tree, this bottoms up approach can work wonders for your group, like it has with the Golds, If you have more questions feel free to email me

Is it possible to find out which Crow line our family descends from without doing Y-DNA? There are both males and females in our direct Crow line so both MTDNA and YDNA aren't possible. Through records, we have traced our line back to William Larkin Crow (1814-1870) born in Tennessee (married Sarah Sutherland). On Ancestry, some have his father as Isaac Crow (1782-1832) but I don't see this as a possibility for many reasons - Isaac doesn't mention William in his will, wasn't in Tennessee, has another son born that same year . . .

Timothy, I do not know of a way without a Y-DNA test from a male Crow descendant of Larkin Crow. I was not even aware he had two first names. I looked at some of those online trees and it seems like the same old story, one person probably started and other just copied.

Tim, If you haven't already take the DNA test at ancestry. Then upload your result to FTDNA, My Heritage and Gedmatch for free. Having your DNA on each of these sites will optimize your chances at seeing your DNA cousins, you will likely gain a better understanding from which early group you descend from

My sister is doing most of the research on my 5th Great Grandfather, James Crow, and his son John, and asked me to post this due to the many, many James and John Crow's there were 300 year ago.

Hello fellow Crow(e)s Some of you are making big advances with your genealogy both in the traditional way and through FT-DNA groups. I have a small request, could your please identify the color group you belong to on your online trees. I continue to search daily for information on our SILVER Crow line, on Google, Bing, Ancestry etc and it would be SO helpful if after I follow a link/person to a tree that I immediately know what color Crow I am looking at, since all the lines are so prolific with James and John Crow(e)s Thanks, Valerie Crow Vavruska, sister of Mike Crow (Silver Line)

Very good summary of where your Gold Group is at in the DNA research. Is this blog only for the Gold group members? Can some else contribute their findings if they are part of another color group?
