As I understand it inorder to do an upload without having to do a SNP
test you must have an exact 12 marker match with others previously SNP
tested and listed in the haplogroup tab section of your page at FTDNA.
If you have 1 or 2 step off matches, while they may be able to estimate
your haplogroup, they will not allow it to be uploaded to the
Genographic Project without further verification, i.e., a SNP test. From
what I understand there has not been a miscall with a 12/12 match to
someone else previously SNP tested in FTDNA's database. So FTDNA will
allow you to upload if you have the 12/12 match with someone previously
SNP tested as reported in the haplogroup tab of your account page.
