I told him the Big Y 500 is the best but that any of the lesser tests would be fine.

    I don't care what anyone else thinks, but I will tell you I prayed when I sent him that last message via Ancestry. I am grateful to God that he finally responded. Thank you, God!

    I really hope he will order a test, even if I have to pay for it.
    Once again, I have to say thank you, God! I heard this morning from the man I mentioned above. He ordered a 111-marker test from FTDNA!

    Now we wait, and I hope for a match. I'm pretty sure he'll match me, but time will tell.

    I know how you feel. I tried for years to make contact with descendants/relatives of my best candidate to be my mystery man paternal line great great grandfather to no avail. Then a week ago, a male line descendant of this man’s paternal grandfather agreed to do a yseq test. Like you, I am very thankful.

    I'd like to talk a little bit about this one while I am impatiently waiting for his results.

    As I mentioned, he and I have a small (just over 9 cM's) match at Ancestry, but he and I also share matches to several of my known relatives: most of them and I have a mrca in my second great grandfather James Holmes Stevens, but a couple of them and I share a mrca in my great grandfather James Holmes Stevens Jr.

    This gentleman is a descendant of Augustine Stevens and Sophia Young via their son Amos H. Stevens and his son Amos Stevens. One of my closest y-dna matches (109/111), who is also on the FGC36982 branch with me, shares with me a Family Finder match to a woman and her brother who are descendants of Augustine and Sophia via their son Amos H. Stevens and his daughter Nancy.

    All of that, plus the paper trail evidence, and the repeated use of the names Augustine/Auguston and Amos in our families, makes me pretty confident that this Stevens gentleman will be a close match to me at 111 markers.

    My recruit has joined our small project (R1b-41-1123).

    Once again, thank God!

    Now I am just waiting for his results.

    This is a frustratingly slow-moving hobby. The recruit mentioned in the last several posts above mailed his samples off to FTDNA over a week ago. They weren't showing up on my GAP page, so I phoned FTDNA when it first opened up this morning. The rep on the phone said the samples had been received. By this afternoon that fact showed up on my GAP page at last.

    That was a relief, but now I settle in for waiting on the results.

    It's good to have something going on with one's personal genealogy while the big time ancient dna papers seem to have dried up.

    Otherwise things would be ochen skuchna (very boring), as my wife would say.

    Now I am just waiting for his results.
    The (to me) very important sample of this recruit is finally in FTDNA's lab, with results predicted for sometime from 21 Jan - 04 Feb 2019. I hope they come much earlier than that and, of course, that they're accurate.

    Man, I hate waiting, but I guess if I wasn't waiting for some kind of dna test results, I wouldn't know what to do with myself.

    I know the feeling, Iam currently waiting for my BigY result. Unfortunately my haplogroup is so rare the only significant match I'll probably have is another guy with my surname who lives in Brazil, who I already match and is also Y31991 PF4428. I suppose that as more people test in the coming years I might get another match. Maybe
