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.

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

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.

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 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

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

Hei.roikkunut tuloksissa jonkin aikaa. Y-67 testin kautta en ole saanut konkreettisia tuloksia, ainoastaan FF-testillä, hyviäkin. Seurataan tilannetta.

Ollaankohan me jääty pattitilanteeseen. Big-Y tulosten mukaan osa ryhmästämme on sijoitettu omalle oksalleen mutta Y-Full näyttää nykyisin kaikki 5 sinne tietonsa laittanutta samalle oksalle.

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.

You are very welcome. I will let Kirill take a look at your results as I mostly take care of the results of my own subbranch A5338. You are also very welcome to join the Norway DNA project as well ;)

Dear all members, due to the new GDPR rules that FTDNA has interpreted much more strict than what is neccessary, we as admins have lost almost all access to help many members with theyr results. Please take a look at the access given to us as admins. "The group access only" gives us no access at all and is equivalent to what members in a project can see in the results list. The "Limited access" gives us only basic access so that we can help you with some and the "Full access" gives us possibility to help you join projects, help you upload gedcom, order analysis, edit some basic info on your profile etc. If we dont have access to anything we cant do much work and cant help our members. So please review your "Group settings"

August 30 @ 4:21pm
Dear Wayne, sorry for my late response, no this has nothing to do with members results, this change in policy has changed us as admins access to help our members with theyr results and be able to interpret results so we can produce genetic trees for our branch. We recommend members to at least give us "Limited access" here: https://www.familytreedna.com/my/project-preferences as keeping it at "Minimum" prevents our work..

Looking at my maternal grandfather's DNA, kit number 20551, tested 67 markers and terminal SNP is Y6351. Can't afford Big-Y. My guess that my very distant ancestors were probably from Norway or Sweden who came in England during the Viking era. How old is Y6351? Thanks, Jeff

August 30 @ 4:17pm
Dear Jeff. I would recommend that you change your project settings https://www.familytreedna.com/my/project-preferences to at least "Limited" as "Minimum" makes it almost impossible for us as admins to be of any assistance. Y6351 is phyloequvalent to Y6340: https://yfull.com/tree/I-Y6340/ and that branch is looks mostly Polish, but there is indeed one downstream Scandinavian branch closer to our time with both Swedes, Norwegians and some English, named S7649. If you cant afford Big-Y I would advice you to test that SNP, if you look at the projects results you will find yourself grouped as probably belonging to that branch: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/I1-L69?iframe=yresults There is actually also more downstream branches that you could belong to and its only Big-Y that would give you an actual final Terminal SNP..
