    Is it possible to know whether or not I am G-M201 with Y-DNA12?

    I'm about the sent my kit for a Family Finder test. And planning on ordering a Y-DNA 12 marker test afterwards.
    I am hoping to have my basic haplogroup information.

    From the Circassian DNA projects, I see that most of the people has G-M201 as haplogroup
    and G2a2-L140->U1->L1264 as subgroup.

    If I order Y-DNA 12 marker test, is it likely to have the basic haplogroup information like G-M201 haplogroup?
    How about subgroup info, how many marker should be tested for subgroup info 37, 67, 101?

    FTDNA guarantees basic haplogroup classification for Y-DNA12 or higher. Y-DNA12 actually measures 14 Y-STRs. If those are not sufficient to predict the basic haplogroup (with, say, 98% probability), FTDNA will run a basic haplogroup SNP test (sometimes called Y-Hap-Backbone). But nowadays, FTDNA's database is so large that the Y-Hap-Backbone test is hardly ever actually required.

    That's great news. Hopefully I will not need more than Y-DNA12
