My results include the following two values


If I hover over the asterisk I get the message " For more information please view the page help".

I cannot for the life of me find help for the page which, apparently, includes the notes for the asterisk.

Any help finding help or defining the asterisk would be greatly appreciated.

I'll admit it certainly qualifies for one of the most obtuse help references off a webpage, but the help page it must be referring to is at https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/user-guide/y-dna-myftdna/y-str-results-page/

On that help page you can find the following explanations for the double and triple asterisk:

** DYS19 is also known as DYS394.
*** The Family Tree DNA and the Genographic Project report DYS389II differently.

There is more information about DYS389 and its various parts here: https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/y-dna-testing/y-str/different-str-markers-dys389i-dys398ii-dys389-2-result-family-tree-dna-different-genographic-project/.

Or if you Google either marker name there is other information available on both outside of FTDNA.
