The sale price is $229, Robert. The benefits of an upgrade to Big Y-700 may be not be apparent immediately but upgrading to Big Y-700 will put you in the best possible position to take full advantage of the results from any new testers. I consider it any investment in the future. You might actually miss important connections with new testers if you don't upgrade and, depending on your circumstances, you may find that new branches will be formed or existing branches rearranged based on the data from one or both of you tests. It is pretty much certain that Big Y-700 will find new SNPs that are specific to your direct paternal line as close as possible to the present. Be sure to read the post from Tiger Walsh that explains the benefits in more detail and ask any questions you have there.

Thanks, Wade. I'm saving up my Pepsi cans, but that Big Y-700 is a pricey dude. I'll get there eventually.

Just to clarify, Robert Budz, my latest post that started "The sale price is $229, Robert" was directed to Robert Kelly Dazet who had asked about benefits of Big Y-700 for himself and Bill Dietrich. Of course, my comments would apply to anyone who hasn't done Big Y-700.

Thank you, Wade! I understand. I'm most interested in Bill's Dietrich Y-DNA line for my Dietrich Family research and finding their origins in the Germanic states, Of course it depends so much on the right people testing -- hasn't happened yet. It would have to be perhaps someone who had an ancestor that emigrated during the Palatine Migration (or more recently) and who has knowledge of where that ancestor came from -- or someone living in Germany. The likely hood of a German doing any DNA testing is very low for privacy reasons. And recent sharing of DNA by GEDmatch with law enforcement and articles in the German press claiming Ancestry DNA distributes customer information with third parties, does not help the cause. In any case I will likely eventually upgrade Bill's test, though I'm not sure I can do so now.

Big Y700 is more than just an upgrade over Big Y500. It runs on state of the art Illumina NovaSeq equipment with new chemistry. It covers more of the Y chromosome with better quality. FTDNA's "Summer Sale" is now on and runs thru Aug. 31st. Big Y700 new kit $499 (saves $150) Y12 to Big Y700 $489 (saves $140) Y25 to Big Y700 $489 (saves $110) Y37 to Big Y700 $459 (saves $90) Y67 to Big Y700 $399 (saves $100) Y111 to Big Y700 $349 (saves $100) Big Y500 to Y700 $229 (saves $20) We are finding more variants (SNPs) for people upgrading to Big Y700. The Y DNA Data Warehouse volunteer service reports Big Y700 has roughly 58% more effective coverage of the Y chromosome as the number of callable locations per test has increased from about 9.2 million to 14.7 million. This translates into the discovery of more SNPs. The below examples are posted on another forum from a third party rating fee service (YFull). This shows the counts of novel/new SNPs that are “best” and “acceptable” from Big Y500 to Big Y700. Since this is a third party’s analysis and not FTDNA’s, the upstream/public SNPs should be accounted for already. Increases in novel quality variants from Big Y500 to Big Y700 for the same individuals (four comparisons posted.) 3 to 4 best, 6 to 8 acceptable, 9 to 12 high quality 0 to 11 best, 0 to 11 acceptable, 0 to 22 high quality 5 to 7 best, 3 to 5 acceptable, 8 to 12 high quality 5 to 7 best, 2 to 5 acceptable, 7 to 12 high quality This is good for genetic genealogy. In the past many people used one SNP for every 140 years. With Big Y700, the Y DNA Data Warehouse estimates the rate to be one SNP for every 82 years. The higher rate can result in refinements to the tree and the discovery of new branches. Big Y700 is not just a targeted SNP test. It is the only type test that will discover your own line of SNPs from the ancient down into your genealogy. Your past Big Y testing has resulted in over 20,600 branches on the y haplotree. https://www.familytreedna.com/public/y-dna-haplotree/A You also get up to 800 Y STRs with Big Y700 and that includes filling in your Y111 STR matching panel. The STRs helps you find relevant matches in FTDNA's large database.

All that is wonderful, but I ordered my upgrade on March 27, and due to the overload on the new equipment, my current projected results delivery date is early to mid September. This upgrade has proven to be quite popular, and that probably accounts for the fact that the sale discount is at a minimum. (You should have ordered back in March.....)

https://www.familysearch.org/de/ Ist eine gemeinnützige Familienforschung, die auf den Grundsätzen der Kirche der Heiligen des Morman basiert, um den verstorbenen Vorfahren die Mitgliedschaft anzubieten und sie anderen wie mir zugänglich zu machen. Ich habe ihre Aufzeichnungen in Salt Lake City, Utah, verwendet, wo es eine FHL (Family History Library) gibt, und in einem der vielen Zentren, Family History Centers, in Mesa, Arizona. Da die Kirche der Heiligen der Mormonen in späteren Tagen Familiengeschichte auf der Grundlage eines starken religiösen Prinzips und der Weitergabe von Familieninformationen schreibt, wäre es keine Unternehmensstruktur, wenn eine Gruppe als Grundlage für die Ahnenforschung angesehen würde. Genealogie ist kein Wettbewerb, bei dem eine Person die andere gewinnt oder die beste Position in einer Unternehmensorganisation einnimmt. Die meisten Familiensuchenden umgehen diese Art von Struktur und teilen Familieninformationen mit anderen Familienmitgliedern. Die Kirche der Heiligen der Letzten Tage überwacht die hohe Sicherheit personenbezogener Daten. Verwendet DNA als Ergänzung zu den etablierten und sicheren Standards. FTDNA Y-DNA Da FTDNA Y-DNA diese grundlegenden Standards nicht zu erkennen scheint und versucht, sie zu ersetzen, anstatt ein zusätzliches Werkzeug zu sein und sie in etablierte Standards zu integrieren, hat sich FTDNA Y-DNA als nicht vollständig nützliche genealogische Forschung erwiesen. Das Downstream-Y-DNA-SNP ist in den meisten Fällen für den Ahnenforscher unerreichbar, wird aber in Zukunft für einige dem heutigen Datum näher kommen. Die Nichtverwendung von Ortsnamen, Volkszählungsnummern und Orten mit einem bestimmten Nachnamen weist darauf hin, dass FTDNA im Geschäft ist, um Gewinne zu erzielen. Die Kirche der Heiligen der Letzten Tage ist, wie jede Kirche, der Familie gewidmet, und ihre Methoden basieren auf ihrem Glauben und der höchsten genealogischen Forschung.

Hello. By uploading your autosome data to this site you will receive information as a successor to the gene of which ancestors you are. This is my result. What are your results? https://mytrueancestry.com/c/main.py

Spartak, your link is great. I signed in and uploaded my KITs. The evaluation works well. What is your experience about the reliability of the evaluation? The shared DNA seems to me very high. For example, with Full Detailed Timeline is my best result 1130 AD - Kievan Rus, Genetic Distance: 14.79, Shared DNA: 44.69 cM Is it the case that several ancestors are the same?

Hi Volfgang. It is known that at that time in Russia the elite was from the Scandinavians (Rus or Rugs), it is possible their relatives were among your ancestors.
Patricia Benesh Patricia Benesh has a question!
August 13 @ 3:49pm
So I have both surnames Benes and Benesch as part of my immediate line, I can not get anything to show up. Is there a tutorial or something. You used to be able to just click, now nothing is working.
Wade Kotter
August 13 @ 4:09pm
Patricia, please explain a little more what you mean by "you used to be able to just click." I've been a member of this project for over three years and, I'm sorry to say, I'm not really sure what you're talking about at least in relation to this project. Are you trying to find out if there is anyone else in this project who gives Benesh, Benes or Benesch as the surname of their earliest known ancestor? If so, I can tell you that the answer is no. Remember that this is primarily a Y-DNA project, which only males have. Also, it is not possible to search this project by the name of the person who was actually tested; we can only search for surnames people have provided for their early known ancestor.
Wade Kotter
August 15 @ 12:07pm
Patricia, it just occurred to me that you might be talking about clicking on the names of people who post here. That still works for me. When I click on your name I see that we share four surnames in our lines, but not Benes or Benesch. However, this does not work for posts by project administrators such as Tiger Walsh.

I was interested in my Y data so I could connect my Bamberg line to a family line in Europe but with the low level of DNA testing there I have not found it that useful. I have Y-67 and have also had my entire sequence done with Veritas. Their current price for that is $599. Is there any reason that the testing at FamilytreeDNA would be any better than what I already have? There does not seem to be anyway for me to use the veritas data to make a Y-full set that I can use for comparisons. I was also wondering how to search the group postings to see if something has already been discussed.
Wade Kotter
August 12 @ 5:36pm
There is no search function, I'm afraid. I've submitted a feature request for one and I know several others have done as well, but so far to no avail. I can say that I've been an active participant on this forum for over three years and I don't think I've ever seen a discussion of files from Veritas Genectics. However, I can say that YFull will accept BAM files from Veritas Genetics customers. Assuming that Veritas has provided you with a BAM file or a link to a BAM file, use the YFull order screen and be sure to select Veritas Genetics as the testing company: https://yfull.com/order/ It's important to know that you will not be able upload your data to FTDNA, so you will only be able to see matches with other YFull samples which mostly come from individual customers but also include some anonymous samples from scientific studies and ancient DNA samples.

My understanding is that Veritas no longer supplies BAM files and only being able to connect to other Yfull profiles does not seem that useful.
Wade Kotter
August 13 @ 11:20pm
Since Veritas no longer provides BAM files (pretty ridiculous if you ask me) then there's no way to use that data at YFull or FTDNA. You may have to bite the bullet and order Big Y-700. Looking at the Veritas site, it's pretty clear that their focus is on health information, not genetic genealogy. Read the post by Tiger Walsh above to see the benefits of Big Y-700.
