I had my adopted son test through the Genographic project, they tested the
same basic ystr 12 marker test as FTdna> his samples are stored by FTdna, we
have had additional tests since he transferred to FTdna.

I would like to see the database. Many of us in this hobby are old enough
that time becomes a concern. The 12 marker test works OK for my Haplogroup
