I have joined!

For your consideration, FTDNA has introduced a S-3058 Pack which covers SNP's in the R-S424 Group. While this test won't necessarily provide you with your final SNA termination, it is a great value for anyone not wanting to spend the cost of the Big Y as it will get you very close to your final termination. It tests 130 specific SNP's and is only $119. A Great Deal.
Here is an update to the LSC chart on YFull. Thanks to everyone for cooperating to match our Kit #'s to the YFull Id's.
I have copied the portion of the Ytree from Yfull (located at www.yfull.com) that holds the 16 Project Members who have had Yfull interpret their results. Since 44 project members are on Alex's Big Tree, there is quite a lot of information that could be shared with everyone if they would consider having Yfull interpret their results. All it requires is that you make an account with them, then send your BAM file to them. They will bill you $49 when they have concluded the initial portion of your interpretation.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, my parents come from very different backgrounds. Since my mother has passed away, my 80 year old uncle will be taking the DNA test in place of my mother. I have also upgraded the kits form myself, my uncle Warden Scott, and my 90 year old father to the Y-DNA111 test. With that in mind, how much of a difference will that make in comparing my uncle’s results, to my results?

Sorry to keep pestering you, but I have 1 more question regarding my father's results.
My father's family lines go from Colorado, to New Mexico, to Mexico, and then to Spain and the Canary Islands.
With that in mind, why is he 11% Scandinavian, 8% East Asia, 3% Central/South Asia, 3% North Africa, and 3% West Africa?
Between my father and mother, no wonder I am such a "mutt".
I would like to hear back from anyone on this question.
My parents come from very different backgrounds, and I am the first generation where my parents married outside their races/regions.
On my mother's side, I am Scottish, English, Irish and North Europe.
On my father's side, I am South Europe, Native American, Canary Islands, Italy/Greece and North Africa.
Currently I am/will be in multiple y-DNA, mt-DNA and Autosomal DNA studies with my 90 year old father, and my 80 year old uncle Warden Scott.
Yes ... I have a very odd mix, and since I'm an 1/8 Native American (Great Grandparent), I'm also interested to find out what ancestors I might in that ethnic group (in a different study).
Anyway, in a previous post I made looking for help in finding the parent's of 8th great grandfather Thomas Langdon, you suggested joining the Langdon group, and to look into the Lost Langtons DNA project and FTDNA Langton/Lenton projects.
Since I am such a mix, and probably not the best candidate to join these group, I will look into getting my uncle Warden to join this group, since he has a more pure typical race/region background.
If anyone can provide me with more information on Thomas Langdon's parents, or the other projects I mentioned, I would greatly appreciate it.
My name is Andrew Quintana, and since my mother has already passed away, my uncle Warden Scott has agreed to DNA testing, and to join this group as well.
If you have any questions for my uncle, send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org (I will contact Warden with your questions.)
Listed below is our closet Mitchell ancestor, and my most distant Mitchell ancestor.
Amanda Jane Mitchell: b. 1845 Porter County, Indiana - d. 1912 Derby, Lucas, Iowa (2nd great-grandmother)
John Michell: b. 1424 St Columb, Cornwall, England - d. 1480 Cornwall, England (16th great-grandfather)
I would greatly appreciate help me tracing my roots beyond John Michell.
