Actually there are about 8 different testing companies, each company has
ownership of certain markers. (Most used are y-STRs) These markes are
different from each other, so a person testing at different companies could
hjave more then 100 different marker results.
I have listed all the markers, some DYS some DYX it is very important to
keep the names and numbers correct. Some markers have multiple answers
If you look at my chart it lists the marker's indicator on the left with the
results extending to the right.
The top of the chart has a person's indicator in my case G1 or G5
whatever... this gives each person a seperate horizontal line, each marker a
vertical line this allows you to compare each person's results for each
Relatedness depends on how close each person compares to the other person.
THis layout allows you to see each seperately.
for lineages of the person tested, we have seperate pages for each line
which you can also access from the website. so you want to look at G1's
lineage, you go to the page for that peson. THe lineages are stoped two
generations above the tested person to keep their identy private.

Hope that helps
