Hello Community!

So my fathers results came back last week and we have some pretty good surname results - 3 very dominant Names. Now when I looked at the advanced matches and "my matches" I saw, that one of the surnames (including 19 people) is not showing up as a match at 12 marker, but does at the other markers. How is this possible?
2 of them do have some good marker though. (no match at 12marker, 2 steps on 37marker and 3 steps on 67marker)

Thank you!
Hannah

Try checking settings on your account "Privacy and Sharing"? It is a tab on Account Settings.

Privacy settings are open for matches and the groups I joined. Maybe I do not understand you correctly?
It is only with one specific surname (19 people), the others do have a match on 12 marker

On the Y-DNA – Matches page, relevant matches are shown. Depending on the testing level, these are:

Y-DNA12 Matches
11 out of 12 (A genetic distance of 1)*
12 out of 12 (A genetic distance of 0)
Y-DNA25 Matches
23 out of 25 (A genetic distance of 2)
24 out of 25 (A genetic distance of 1)
25 out of 25 (A genetic distance of 0)
Y-DNA37 Matches
33 out of 37 (A genetic distance of 4)
34 out of 37 (A genetic distance of 3)
35 out of 37 (A genetic distance of 2)
36 out of 37 (A genetic distance of 1)
37 out of 37 (A genetic distance of 0)


* For Y-DNA12 matches, 11 out of 12 matches are only shown with both customers belong to the same group project.
However, to best serve our customers who are adopted, we provide at the Y-DNA12 level both 11/12 and 12/12 matching to the entire Family Tree DNA database to those in the Adoptee Project. This is because they cannot know the best Surname project to join in advance of testing.
