السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته الله يعطيك العافية أخي المشكلة اني مشترك في هذا المنتدي ولكن لم يردي علي إلا شخص واحد فقط وهو إنسان انه بحق انسان محترم ويستحق كل الثناء والشكر أما بعض الناس في المنتدي حولو المنتدي إلي ساحة حرب بين الاعضاء حيث كل شخص يشكك بنتيجة الاخر ويشكك في نسبه للاسف حيث كل صاحب نتيجة يقول سلالتي هي من نسل عدنان او من قحطان للاسف أن هذا العلم يستخدمه البعض بشكل خاطئ وشكرا اخي العزيز

My maternal grandfather's family was from Lebanon. I don't know anything about them. They went to the Dominican Republic perhaps from Lebanon or Spain or Portugal. This must have occurred over 4 or 5 generations back. Their surname is Matos and my grandfather was J2.

Hi Doonius. This is the very question that I asked myself when I first looked into all of this. You have to do the Y37 STR marker test so that FTDNA have a saliva sample from you. I don't know why they can't just ask for a sample and then do the BigY straight away but that's how it works. In the past they provided a 12 STR marker test but that doesn't exist any more and the 37 is the cheapest initial test available now.

Hi Allan no what I meant was I have already done the Y111 marker test it is more accurate then the Y37 marker test I believe kindly correct me if you have any idea about that...

Sorry Doonius. I thought you were just starting out with regard to all the testing. The only way to get an accurate terminal clade is to do the BigY and then do YFULL. Since you have already done 111markers you can go ahead and do the BigY now. I wouldn't bother messing around with individual SNP tests. It works out to be more expensive in the long-run and a very drawn out process. Are you doing the tests because you are trying to find close, recent male relatives or are you doing the tests just for fun to see where your ancient male line was from and where they migrated to? The reason I am asking is because STR (Short Tandem Repeat) test results, which is what you have at the moment, are only really useful for tracing close relatives. Anything more than one genetic difference (GD) at 37 markers and they are pretty much useless with regard to confirming a close relationship, ie father, grandfather and they are completely useless at predicting what your terminal clade might be. Many would have you believe you can calculate how far back you were related to someone by using STR values but this theory has pretty much been proven to be an exaggeration. STR testing was first used for paternity testing and for crime scene investigation (gives probability that accused was at the scene of the crime). SNP testing is the only reliable way to calculate dates for TMRCA (time of most recent common ancestor). Apologies if you know all of this stuff already.
