View Full Version : Big-Y Results

Good Morning,

Among my Big-Y results, I have one "match" who shares 17 novel variants with me, and only with me. In total, we share 79 novel variants. Is this significant? I am Z8, but he is Z1 & Z346, and we have different surnames, but the 17 novel variants that only we share intrigued me.

If you have not already done so, I would strongly urge that you join the R-U106 Project at FTDNA and share your vcf/bed file with them for (free) further analysis.

While the Big Y test itself is decent, FTDNA's analysis of the results leave something to be desired.

Thanks! I'm a member of the U106 Project (N91511), and I submitted my file to one of the leaders 2 days ago. He's currently analyzing the files.
