Crazily enough, Ysearch does recommend converting (subtracting from) DYS463
values obtained from FTDNA:
DNA-Fingerprint and FTDNA's Genomics Research Center


DYS 463: Subtract 2 from the value reported by DNA-Fingerprint before
entering it into Ysearch.

As I have mentioned earlier, that same paragraph used to recommend
subtracting 19 from DYS452. At some point, mysteriously, it was dropped.
FTDNA's IT apparently had time to change a web page, but not enough time to
run an SQL command.
