I have a friend (lives in the USA) whose closest Y-DNA match is in the UK about 500 years back. They both are on a FTDNA surname project and also an FTDNA subclade project. He has Big Y on order, I think both for himself and for his match. He has asked me if any websites or companies exist in the UK which are oriented toward Y-DNA from the area. He is trying to find out if he should be casting his net in a bigger pond.

I appreciate any thoughts.

Hi Jack

LivingDNA seems to be reasonably focused on the UK and NW Europe. It tries to get down to county level and seems OK most of the time.

Here's mine from the last update.

A recent update on LivingDNA gave the following Autosomal shared origins.

Europe 95.5%
Great Britain and Ireland 88.5%
Central England 24.2%
Northern Ireland and Southwest Scotland 18.8%
East Anglia 12.7%
South Central England 6.6%
Northumbria 4.3%
South England 4.2%
Devon 3.9%
Cornwall 2.6%
Northwest Scotland 2.4%
North Wales 2.4%
Southeast England 2.1%
Lincolnshire 2.1%
South Wales Border 2%

Europe (North and West) 6%
South Germanic 3.8%
France 2.2%

Asia (South) 5.5% (ancient Y-DNA J2-L26 causing this I suspect)
Pashtun 5.5%

He will want to send both sets of results here to see who else may be in their set: https://www.yfull.com
