Greetings from Nova Scotia. I am awaiting the results of my Y-700 test. I plan to submit the BAM file to yfull as soon as the results are provided. Don MacLeod. YDNA Kit 222163. Some believe comparing my brother's yfull results, which I have already submitted to yfull, compared with my results, MIGHT produce some added information.

One thing it will accomplish is matching nearly all of his novel SNPs, and getting a block of SNPs up on the tree for your family branch. From there, you'll need cousins, preferably 4th or further out, to do the BigY to help branch off some of those SNPs to refine the twigs on your branch. It looks like there are quite a few people in your grouping that have only done SNP pack testing, or are all stuck at the Y17395* level with no matching testers for their Novel SNPs.

I was just looking at my FTDNA Y-700 results again. My original results indicated haplopgroup I-Y17395. Now, my haplogroup is I-Y55094. My brother Frank awaits the results of his Y700, but his Y-300 test indicates his haplogroup as I-BY88644. ? ? ? ?

Simon: A Big-Y700 will identify your personal branch, which can be used to calculate how closely related you are to your matches. You will receive the full range of SNPs both shared with others and unique included are also at least 700 STRs.

Hello! I am trying to find the latest research reports on my father's subclade to I-M253 which is I-M227 (he goes on through Y2713 to Y7925). When I read about I-M227 I find information on that the haplogroup may be spread by the Goths, Varangian Vikings etc and I want to know what is actually verified or a good hypothesis of all this. I trace his ancestry (documented) to the island of Gotland (belonging to Sweden since 1645, from 1361-1645 under Danish rule and before that a country of its own more or less). I would be grateful if anyone could point me in the direction of some good scientific reading on I-M227./Best regards from Madeleine

03.03.2019. Just a note to advise, my Bigy700 FTDNA test results are delayed. I had to submit a new sample. It could be ready by the end of April, at which time I will submit the BAM file to yfull.com. They both my brother Frank's (already sent to Yfull) and my results will be available for comparison. Regards, Don MacLeod. M-253 I-Y17395. ADDENDUM. May 23, 2019 My Y700 results arrived this afternoon.

Just wanted to make sure the admins knew that 2 kits are close to receiving their Y700 results. I'm expected more unnamed variants for both, as well as many more shared SNPs in the A20926 block. I am still trying to get a couple more of the members of my Capps project to get the Y700, so hopefully more in process before the end of the year. Jeremy Stewart for Wallace

1. Which two kits, are they yours? Who tells forum users the inside tracking of laboratory employee technician progress? [Dogs Bark Louder & Longer than Men, Ever wonder why some people like Canine more than Humans] (Earl of Moray "James Stewart for William Wallace" = 1570 AD and 1270 AD?) 2. What is the Capps Project?

Waiting on my Results. Some time in July. Was really hoping to find out my M253 is from Romania 1st. = Interesting & Confusing, yet was told that Alexander Hamilton is my cousin. Dad took my Sister to Indiana before i could get her Sample, and send it in. Bought multiple test kits. Even tried to get a really good looking redhead to let me have her sequenced, since the kit can not be used by sister who left florida for indiana.

The Capps project is a surname project for men who are related to the various Capps family lines, hence the last name Capps on this kit. I am Wallace's grandson, and don't want to join my kit to this project to post on the board, since I am R1b. The two kits getting the upgrade are both Capps surname kits, so the only two Capps kits in this projects' yDNA results page. I am hoping the Bath surname tester in the Y60845 block gets the upgrade as well, but I haven't heard from the person that admins the kit in a while.

I seem to have a lot of Norwegian cousins, my family have Scottish roots dating back by research so far to the 1600's Inverness. However, it would appear that the common denominator in my Y DNA links through to the name Andersson. Must be something to do with the Viking invasion of Scotland 800- 826AD from Ireland. My mtDNA seems firmly rooted​ in England via Iberia

Regarding "Norwegian cousins"... Consider taking a close look (using FTDNA TIP reports, for example) into your matches' MRCA number of generations (even up to 24) using higher percentage (say 70% to 90%) probabilities. Using about 30 years per generation, convert these to calendar time. Since 24 generations at 30 years each is only 720 years ago (about 1300), you may find that your MRCAs are from either the Viking or Norman (also many Norse) times. Then, for an estimate prior to about 1300, try to find and compare the same matches to YFull estimates for Time to MRCA. However, as many do, you may discover your ancestor to be a Norwegian immigrant from a later period -- say the 14th and 15th centuries. This later result still would have given many generations to assimilate into Scotland before we find them as parish "locals" in the early 17th century. Instead of Scottish heritage societies, you can then get to meet people, including researchers, from Norwegian ones! (Hope you have fun using these discovery tools.)

33years per generation; just wanted to point out that families from Northern Jutland and our ancestors has almost 33years per generation or just shy of a turn around say 3 per 100 years. This in sharp contrast and significant implications to families from the Orient who may have a turn around as low as 25years (or even slightly lower) or just about 4 per 100 years. In Northern Jutland again, as the first born for male predated by a marriage typically by 7-10months, was about 26-27years of age in the past documented period 2-300 years ago; the female equivalence at 25-26 years of age this fits the bill fine with two year cicle and 50-75 percent dead before marriage possibilities. and about 15 events lots of still-born, but often 4-20 'pregnancies', ending often at about 40 years of age for female. As woman often died during delivery, up to 1 in 2 birth moms (/wives) parished immidiately after or during one of her deliveries ... male would re-marry with a young female perhaps slightly older than average, and continue reproducing into old age (after 50y of age). All will support the 33year range. Please let me know of any thoughts on this, as I like to take this item further outside this forum.

I should have thought about this ... I have personally this documented experience : ....................paⁿ 8 # of gen's 39,875 years per generation (birth ~1640 to birth apr 1959) ....................maⁿ 8# og gen's 31,375 years per gen. (birth 1708 to birth of my sister 1961). This may lead to an average of about 3 gen's per 100 years on average - the discussion becomes hard about first born male and female and the benjamin etc..... depending on your approach to statistics. cheers

I just wanted to encourage anyone with the BigY-500 already completed to upgrade to Y700 before the end of the month. For $179, you get an entirely new sequencing test, with greater coverage of the Y chromosome, near comparable to YElite coverage, which will help this project further refine the tree with greater numbers of SNPs found per kit. I have already ordered the upgrade for this kit, and hope to get others to do so as well. Jeremy for Wallace

Hello, I just wanted to make sure you were aware that a new branch has formed under Y11265. There are three testers in the Y60845 grouping, with this kit and 41210 branch down to Y62954*. FTDNA displays different haplogroups for the two kits, but both are Y62954*. I am going to work on getting the other tester to join this group. Jeremy Stewart for Wallace
Wallace Capps (I-A20926)
February 18 @ 8:27am
Thanks for creating that branch. I am currently working on another tester to order the BigY, and he should help further branch the grouping being a Y37 match to the two Capps testers. Jeremy

Hello guys, and thank you for inviting me into the group. My name is Andreas, and I'm Norwegian. My family has long suspected that my fathers father on paper was not the actual one. The DNA-results have confirmed this, as his origins would have a German Y-DNA, while mine are not. I still haven't got a full grasp on how to interpret the DNA results, but are very eager to understand more about who my actual grandfathers family are. Any pointers on how to proceed through the Y-DNA would be much appreciated.

Hello, I see that your results are not grouped yet, but the admins should take care of that next time they are online. Since you don't know whether your grandfather is related to you, or not, I would suggest the Family Finder test, if you haven't already had it run. That will give you more relevant matches within the last few generations, and might help you narrow down your search. The Y-DNA testing on here, especially in a group like this, will give you a family branch from hundreds to thousands of years back. Since you have only done the Y37 STR test, your grouping is going to be more broad. It looks like you did a SNP pack and landed on CTS6364, which is spread throughout multiple groupings in this project. Upgrading to the BigY-500 is going to be your best shot at finding your closest match, and will keep refining your line as more testers come along and match your unnamed variants.

Thanks Wallace! I've done the Family Finder test, and will definitely look into the Big-Y500.
