Just for everyone's interest, after the last FTDNA Big Y-500 - Big Y-700 upgrade sale, we had 37 upgrades for the Big Y-700 & one new Big Y-700 test.

Your Hall Group is composed of 4 different SNP's that make up your Hall Family. So, the Big Y-700 will provide you with your most downstream SNP and thus position you with those that have also performed a Big Y. Using those SNP's, you can begin to construct the structure of your Hall Clan and determine the legs of it in terms of genealogy. So, since you have not performed a Big Y before, it will be interesting to see if you fall within the existing 4 SNP's or if you may be a completely different SNP. Based on your association with others in your Y-DNA matching, it is likely you will end up matching Z29556 but you never know.

My Big Y-700 results are in (new test), 5 weeks from ordering! Was showing an estimate of 5-19 June.

Hey Lara, 42 Big Y-700 Upgrades & 15 new Big Y-700 Tests. Also, you had a question about the cost of the Data Files with the Big Y-700. The RAW DATA File (VCF File) is free with the Big Y700 Test now, but if you need the BAM File it will cost $100. Therefore, we have now suspended asking for the BAM File and will only request the Raw Data (VCF File).

NEW IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM FTDNA _______________________________________________________ ***Please note:*** The lab prefers fresher samples for the Big Y-700, so if the only sample available is a partial sample in the lab that is more than 2 years old, the lab is having us reach out to those kit managers to see if we are able to obtain fresh sample. We're looking into sample availability at the time of purchase, so if the person ordering the test receives an email about sending new sample, please respond directly to that email to let us know either your mailing address for the new collection kit or if the tester is no longer available and we need to use that partial sample. _______________________________________________________ From: Bob Akin I would highly recommend, if at all possible, that you submit a Y-DNA sample for the Big Y-700.

I think there may be the possibility that many members of the R-S424 Project may not be aware of the fine work being done by the administrator of this project, Alex Williamson, in his construction of the "Big Tree" located at the link below. http://www.ytree.net/ If you would like to be included in that tree, you must perform a NGS Test such as the Big Y. If you have performed a NGS test such as the Big Y, you may already be included in the "Big Tree" and you can find yourself by searching the category of your Haplogroup. If you have performed a NGS such as the Big Y and are not listed in the "Big Tree", you have only to download your Big Y VCF files and forward to Alex Williamson at scotsgenealogy@gmail.com Providing Alex with a link to your BAM file would also be helpful in analyzing your Test. Please Note: Non-qualified project members in the "Not LSC" Grouping in the R-S424 aka "LSC" are not eligible for the above.
