Hey all

I just ordered a kit for myself just for the heck of it, and I was wondering how updated their Haplogroups are? Do they test for subclades?

If anything, 23andMe's recent update is a step backwards as far as Y-DNA haplogroups are of concern, I used to be J1-P58, but now I'm just J1-M267. If you want to learn more about your paternal line, I'd suggest testing with FTDNA, not 23andMe.

What's the E-M35 project? Might I be eligible?

If you've tested with FTDNA and happen to be E-M35, then you're eligible. Here's the project: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/e-3b/about

Many of the international customers are still left on the Old Experience, where our haplogroups are nearly eight years out of date. The nomenclature here from 23 is from 2007 if i recall, and predates the explosion of the Y tree that has followed the release of exploratory Y tests to the public in recent years. My understanding is that UK customers will finally be transitioned sometime before 2018.

Hence why I only log onto mine or my brother's 23&me when incredibly bored. If one isn't on the new experience you are pretty much just counting the occasional new relative, skimming a post or two by others, and watching paint dry.

I read on the 23andMe forum that the UK will finally transition "at the end of this summer". https://www.23andme.com/you/community/thread/44313/

Not bad but they have pretty boring presentation and don't tell you much. Geno has by far the best and most interesting presentation of your haplogroup and walk it out of Africa major mutation by major mutation.

Obviously something like BigY gives you a deeper level than either though. But tons of $ and no presentation.
