    Y-DNA 12 Added to Family Finder Kit ~ How Long Will It Take??

    Hello-

    I added Y-DNA 12 to my Family Finder kit this evening and I was curious how long it will take for the results. I do not need to send another sample.

    Thank you!

    My dad's YSTR37 came in surprisingly quickly, just a few weeks. OTOH, my mtDNA full is taking a lot longer, looks like it will be more than two months.

    I've done Y12 during this holiday sale, and it took only 2 weeks. Family Finder also took only 2 weeks in October.

    The BigY test I purchased in November came back in a surprisingly fast 2 weeks. When I got FF back in June it took a month before I got the results.

    STR are not a good way to get haplogroups, Y12 would let them maybe guess at a very, very basic backbone group at best and by the time you add in STR32 and 67 upgrades to get a better group or backbone SNP packs, the cost is more than a whole new basic $99 23 test or even $149 Geno 2.0 NG test (which gives you the nicest presentation of haplogroup info and walk it step by step out of Africa).

    Of course eventually getting to an advanced SNP pack and especially big Y from FTDNA gives you the most detailed haplogroup info of all but that does cost some money, especially the later which costs a real lot, like hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

    I have 12 markers now and I only know that I'm R1a, TMCRA 18400 y.b.p. If you want to know all the information, order Y12 + Big Y on a sale.

    I jumped from Y12 to v13 snp test, and I'm confirmed now to be v13!

    If you don't mind me asking, how much was Y12 in the holiday sale. Currently it's 59 $. And I'm planning add to Family Finder kit like you did.
    Are you satisfied with what you have from Y12?
    Thanks.

    I ordered Y12 at New Year sale for $39 (used $20 coupon). Y12 isn't enough in most cases. I know that I'm R1a, but I don't even know if I belong to European Z283 or Asian Z93, so I'm not satisfied. If you want to know your subclade, you should order at least 37 markers, and NGS tests like Big Y or Y Elite are still irreplaceable. 12 markers will give you very little information.
    77% East Europe, 14% Finland, 2% Siberia, 2% Northeast Asia, 2% Central Asia, <2% North and Central America
