If there is anyone out there in "Listland" who to date has not submitted their Y "scores" to www.ybase.org you would confer a favor on me and all if you would attend to this forthwith. This is a wonderful tool made all the more necessary since, to the best of my knowledge, none of the major testing companies have a fully searchable database that the public can access.

OK -- trouble is, I'd already searched ybase, and found it to be
useless, for us, so far. There are so few people in it. Y-STR has
over 10 times as many, from a much wider variety of origins. There's
no one in ybase at this time who comes close to matching my father.
But I've put his haplotype in there, in the hopes that some day, a
person will come along who is close, and we can help eachother.
Also, I asked the list since I bet there are more people on it than you
might think, who haven't gotten around to, or don't want to, submit
their haplotype to ybase.
