I should have run this idea thru you guys and gals
before sending to my Danish List. What I believe
is that in certain situations it is possible to
successfully search the SMGF database and
get one's Y-genetic profile. One situation is
where the surname is only in the database once.
Another situation is where the submitters has
several patronyms, rather than surnames, in
the male line.
For me personally it should be very easy. My
surname is not yet in the database, so when it
is, it will probably be me. Then I should be able
to compare my surname with SMGF's sample profile.
Then by trial and error I should be able to get all
the markers. How? For any marker mismatches
I substitute other values until the right one pops up.
Soon I should have all correct markers in my profile.
For persons whose male line have several patronyms
finding one's genetic profile should not be difficult.
While I have a surname, I also have 5 patronyms.
Since SMGF shows not only the submitter's name,
but all the male line names lined up in order,
it should be a snap a group matching yours. Then
correct the mismatches.
If you get more than one search result having
the same name or group of names, then you can't
know which is yours. But you can still work both,
correcting mismatches. Those matches that are
alike in both/all results will probably give
you most of your markers.
Has someone already presented this idea? If so,
I would like to read it.
If I am incorrect or unclear, please email me.
