    Hello Leonardo,

    Would you mind telling me in what ways BigY & Yfull were able to help you out. I'm curious to know what practical benefits can be had from the two. For example, I'm interested in tracking the geographical movements of my paternal ancestors and roughly pinpointing the time frames they occurred in. Were you able to glean any information along those lines? Or did it help you in other ways?

    Well, my paternal grandfather is unknown. Everything I have learned about him comes from autosomal and y-dna testing. While the autosomal is more beneficial overall (I recently received a 2nd-3rd cousin match at Ancestry DNA; I am still waiting for the match, who has no family tree listed, to reply), the y-dna has helped shore up some things. My "closest" y-dna match shares a common ancestor at 700 years. Distant, for certain, but to be honest, I never thought I would get this close. I contacted the administrator of that account and requested she submit the results to YFull, which she most graciously did. The most distant common ancestor for this match is probably about 100 km or so from where autosomal results results indicate my paternal grandfather's ancestors may have originated. Furthermore, the y-dna test confirmed that my paternal y-dna ancestry is Slavic in origin, most likely West Slavic, and that my unknown ancestral surname may well be Germanic, as opposed to Slavic (on the autosomal side, there is a mix; om the y-dna side, the nearest from about 500 CE seems to be Germanic, a further indication, for me, that the origin is likely West Slavic). I y-dna tested only a few years ago. Hopefuly more is to come. Small steps, small victories, but, for me, something on which I can hang my hat and motivate me to keep researching.

    Hello Leonardo,

    Very interesting and thank you for passing that along. I'm actually more interested in deeper ancestry and geographical migrations and it looks like it may be helpful in that regard.

    Sounds very similar to my circumstances. My Paternal is Slavic but name is Germanic. I have hundreds of Slavic matches at two testing services.

    Having tested with FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry DNA, I have researched my autosomal matches to the point that it appears my paternal grandfather's ancestry was likely from Kashubia. Their surnames often appear to be Germanic. Many settled in Germanic communities upon their arrival. Kashubian communities did arise. I have a great deal of matches with individuals from some of these places: Stevens Point and Portage County (hello Lil' Bit's mother in-law who is a distant cousin), Detroit, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. I have received a few 3rd cousin matches recently which continues to encourage me.
