    Dan,

    I know it's bit of a kick in teeth, but to get the most out of your Y-DNA lineage you will probably need to test with FTDNA in long run, as there are a several thousdan M222+ men tested in there. It's also tends to be the place where the most in new discoveries is coming from due to tests such as "Big Y-500" etc. They do obviously have a number of tiers when it comes to testing (upgrading between them is cheaper, so useful for stretching test out over a period of time:

    Living-DNA supplied a database file with 385 YDNA entries. I suppose that most entries have no importance in a family tree, but will certain entries help me narrow my search.

    Dan none of them will help in your family tree in the sense that most people understand the term, it takes a fair amount of effort to find a SNP that enters the 'genealogical' era. Some lines don't have even one such marker.

    There are some dates on the branches on the YFull M222 tree. To get on the tree you would need a more expensive sequencing test (Full Genomes, YSEQ-WGS etc) but you will see that branches dated within the last 1000y aren't that easily located. However the catch is that we need more people to do sequencing in order to refine the tree and add more detail and that's the point at which the age of the branch will better approach meaningful family history (last 3-400y for most of us unless you are lucky).

    Any more questions pm me, I co-admin the M222 group on YFull (sample kit YF01405 at the link below).
