SNPs test for haplogroups and mitogroups. I was unaware of any provider only testing for these. If that is the case, it may be necessary to purchase a kit from a provider who reports (for Y-DNA) STR markers or (for mtDNA) differences from the CRS to find matches. There are a number of choices, none of which, singly, are terribly expensive. I have a comparison chart which I can supply offlist (since I assume this list like many others prohibits mentions of specific providers and money).
If you aren't sure of what your provider supplied exactly, I suggest you ask them for clarification. If you aren't comfortable doing that, I'll be happy to help interpret the results. Just email me offlist (unless you are willing to post the results here.
However, I will STILL accept anyone into my projects if they provide their SNP results and haplogroup or mitogroup, contact information etc.
