Just joined the project. My kit # is B9950. I joined because some of the people I match on the Big Tree are in it. I am not 100% certain if I qualify.

As I update the project, when SNP's change or our updated, as they have been lately, I am experiencing an anomaly in the new software installed by FTDNA in the subgrouping of our project members. The anomalies show up in orange color & I am unable, after updating the subgroup, to eliminate or trash the resulting anomaly. This problem has been reported to FTDNA who is working on a solution.

I might mention that this anomaly does not show up when using the viewing method "Y-DNA Results Classic", only when viewing in "Y-DNA Results Colorized".

I upgraded my Big Y-500 to Big Y-700. I was comparing both the VCF and the BAM files, and the VCF and BAM files from the Big Y-700 are smaller and have far fewer entries. This doesn't make any sense to me, I thought the Big Y-700 was supposed to find more, not less. Has anyone else noticed this? Can anyone explain this?

I have a Big Y match to a Frank Martin Biggs...is this the same one as co-admin?

Lara, you will have some sort of match to practically everyone in this project, however, your closest matches will be in the SNP Z39298 Group. Yes Frank Boggs, not Biggs, is a co-admin here, but you are not a very close match to him.

I was just looking at Jimmy's Y-12 matches....is it normal to have over 4700 matches at that level? I have another uncle that has less than 30 matches! Just wondering what normal is at the 12 marker level.
Bob Akin
January 23 @ 8:21pm
I don't exactly know what one could say is normal at the 12 STR level, however, it is not uncommon to have that many matches. There are some in the LSC with over 6800 matches at that level, however, I am like your Uncle as I have only 57. The 12 STR level is extremely broad for most purposes & goes back thousands of years. However, keep in mind that if a tester only tested 12 STR's & would be a Miller, for instance, you might find you are a match to him in a narrower STR Test.

I thought it might be a good idea to list the current 2020 (Non-Sale) pricing for Single Project Tests, Upgrades to your current Y-DNA STR Test, & Upgrades for the Big Y-700. FTDNA has done a pretty good job lowering their pricing. Please note, however, the only two Single Product Y-DNA STR Tests available from now on, are Y-37 & Y-111, unless you have tested previously, then you still have the option to upgrade according to the Upgrade Chart.
