Where did you learn this? It appears to be incorrect and not logical. I just
checked one of my sponsored project members and his page still requires him
to take a SNP before transferring his results to the Genographic Project.
Since every man who has taken a Y-DNA test at FTDNA has at least 12 markers,
the whole issue would not have come up unless my statements were true. If
FTDNA is changing this policy, tell us.
