Maybe I've tested to much, but then again, you sometimes run into differing results...
Refined result. FTDNA Haplotree now shows 7 branches out of N-Z4786.
Hi. I have my confirmed Haplogroup. I also have a few available tests in blue. Is it worthwhile to refine my result? Should I take the tests? What could I gain?
My confirmed haplogroup is now N-BY30470. On the Karelian branch - as I anticipated... Is it possible to connect the haplogroup and the parent clades in my Matching tab to a certain time and a place? When and where did, for instance, N-VL72 emerge? The purpose of my testing is to eventually find out when my paternal ancestors left Karelia, but maybe that requires more people to be tested?
I have 14 BigY-matches, but we are only 5 on my terminal BY28952, the rest of them is on the other branches under... How far apart in age can we assume that CTS28952 and the other are, and is it possible to do any more details from in the future? We are 3 with a ancestry from the swedish side, and "forest finns", or early settlers, so I suspect that the finnish names could be from an earlier generation.
A way of presentation is not familiar to me. What does this mean (YSEQ YP1138 SNP test result) ??
Here is the result of I.Pasanen's BigY, which was completed in late November. Now I've uploaded the VCF file to YFull and got the result. I'm a beginner in this, so I wonder if I need to do something more while waiting to get BAM file from FTDNA?
Here’s the logic behind the new BigY matching algorithm threshold. SNP mutations happen on the average of one every 100 years. This number is still discussed and debated, but this estimate is as good as any.
If your common ancestor through two men had two sons, 1500 years ago, and each line incurred 1 mutation every hundred years, at the end of 1500 years, the number of mutations between the two men would be approximately 30.
Finally I got my BigY. Maybe someday i’ll Know more about dad’s history and paternal line. Right now, it’s dad, me and my brother.
Well, I just got my dad's Big Y -
Just got my BigY results.
This is a rare photo - my grandfather whom I never saw. Alexey Ryabov. He was much older than his wife and died in 1947. This photo was made during WWI, the inscription on the back is dated March 1917. He was a minor officer at that time. Father says he participated in Brusilov offensive but father was to be born much later, so, not quite sure. The photo was made in Zhitomir.
