Re: Grandson's Y DNA
In Response To: Re: Grandson's Y DNA ()

Art and Lyle
No,no you both were right on target..I definitely agree that I need to get his Y into FTDNA as soon as I can afford to..ha ha.
I know NOTHING about non European haplotypes and researching those lines. That is why I DO need any help you can give me.

I was shocked that our matches with Tevin seemed smaller so I checked with a couple folks I know and learned about the possibility of AA recombining more quickly.

If that is true I think it is important for people to know as I clearly did NOT.

Have any of you noticed this? Different sized matches?
The matches Tevin shares with my sister ( his great Aunt) and myself are more numerous and smaller. So it seems that 23andme who do not allow any "breaks" in the run report the sequences differently than Family Tree DNA or what I saw when I put him at GEDmatch.

I really appreciate what you all have told me.

Any help you can give me is great. One of my Granddaughter has a great grandparent from Puerto Rico so I saw a bit of it but not to this extent.

I am learning and do know nothing about his haplotype except that it for sure goes back to Africa.
