    Who is better to test

    I have a spare 23andme kit to use ( I have already tested with 23andme ).

    my Question is..........who overall is more beneficially for me to use this spare kit on........my father or one of my sons?

    I think either can give me results to actually show where my ydna is on the Chr............or ....

    European = 99.2%......Central Asian = 0.8% ....Yfull - 1460BC, Jura caves
    Father's Mtdna .........T2b17
    Grandfather's Mtdna .......T1a1e
    Sons Mtdna .......K1a4
    Maternal Grandfather paternal......I1d-P109...CTS6009
    Wife's Ydna .....R1a-Z282

    My Path = ( K-M9+, TL-P326+, T-M184+, L490+, M70+, PF5664+, L131+, L446+, CTS933+, CTS54+, CTS8862+, Z19945+, Y70078+ )

    The main negatives = ( M193-, P322-, P327-, Pages11- , L25- , CTS1848- )

    Since both will have your Y-DNA, I would say to test your father, since you can compare his autosomal DNA to yours, especially with Gedmatch tools. Also, I always test "older" people when given a chance.
    Paternal: R1b-U152 >> L2 >> FGC10543, Pietro della Rocca, b. 1559, Agira, Sicily, Italy

    Mother's Paternal: J1+ FGC4745/FGC4766+ PF5019+, Gerardo Caprio, b. 1879, Caposele, Avellino, Campania, Italy
    Father's Maternal: T2b-C150T, Francisca Santa Cruz, b.1916, Garganchon, Burgos, Spain

    Dad-potentially lets you find out more about your whole line

    I too have heard 'older is better' as a general rule

    good luck
