I had understood Ashley yesterday to say that the FTDNA test would cover
every SNP that the 23andMe test covered. To me - that meant that it would
include yDNA amd mtDNA SNPs - as 23andMe reports Deep Clade results.
After offlist queries from Raymond Wing and Steven Perkins, I called FTDNA
again and Ashley confirmed the understanding of many on this list that
FTDNA will not be reporting yDNA or mtDNA SNPs. (I didn't ask about xDNA
SNPs - but would expect that FTDNA isn't going to report them either)
So - I have editted my blog to remove this statement. Thanks for the
Looking forward to finding more cousins! What I really want to do is to
give this "Family Finder" try with Barton Lineage I to see if it will help
us identify branching.
Thanks for the info. Has it been confirmed that the FTDNA FF will include
for previously untested participants the mtDNA and Y-DNA info?
