.Hey R1B1C7's if you want to have
some fun ? Create a new Y-search user by only plugging in the last 32
Markers of your 67 marker test .Set the limit to a genetic distance of 2
comparing To bad but not all R1B1C7's use Y-search. Or simply eyeball the
R1B1C7. Haplogroup they appear to be closer in genetic distance than other
haplogroups when comparing only the last 32 markers, for some reason.How
I have done that. Compare 3VEJQ J8A43 JH4GZ XEDAQ vujw4
Some contain 67 marker sequence; some contain much less.
When I compare my nine markers to the nine markers of vujw4 I get a GD of
When I compare my 67 markers against vuyw4, I get a GD of 15.
With only comparing a small number of markers, you can be assured of
matching up very well with someone who is a GD of 0 from you.
But expand to a large number of markers, and you "narrow the field" of
Do a survey at the train station: Choose passengers awaiting train arrival
Ask three questions:
Was your sixth grade teacher a woman?
Did you go to high school ?
Was your high school located West of the Mississippi?
You will find many matches.
Expand the query with more questions:
Did you take Physics in high school?
Were you in top 5% of class in grades at graduation?
Did you get a scholarship for college?
Do you now have a PhD ?
You will discover that the number of matches has reduced considerably.
The more objects selected for comparison results in a reduction of the
number of close matches.
If tomorrow FTDNA were to announce a 300 marker test for $67.95, and
thousands of us submitted samples in order to be tested and sequenced, we would
discover that are very close cousins (who match 65 for 67) may drift away to a
match of 268 for 300.
