First the DYS#464 results. I suspect that your 464 results are not correct. DYS #464 is a very difficult one to read. So, I suspect what happened is that they had some trouble reading yours and misjudged the peaks.
CDYa/b is highly unusual. This is a marker with a very high mutation rate, so differences between relatives is not unusual. However, the amount of difference in your case is unusual.
I would contact FTDNA and ask them to reexamine 464 and CDY for you and your cousin. Is there is still a difference at 464, I would do a 646x test on both of you. This will read the correct number of duplicates.
I was curious if anyone can comment on some y-DNA results from my DNA project (Reference: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/weingart/default.aspx?section=yresults )
I recently received y-DNA results back from my 5th cousin. According to our respective family trees, we trace back to the same 4th great-grandfather. Below are differences we have:
For the first 12 markers we match 12 for 12.
At the 25 marker level everything matches except for
my Kit 40543: 9-10
my cousin's Kit 269385: 9-9
my Kit 40543: 11-12-14-15-16
my cousin's Kit 269385: 11-12-12-14-14-15-15-16
At the 37 marker level there is a difference at
my Kit 40543: 35-41
my cousin's Kit 269385: 34-35
The difference at DYS459 is not extraordinary.
However, I don't know how I should interpret the differences at DYS464 and DYS-CDY. If the paper trail that my cousin and I have is correct, would such diverse differences occur?
When the next sale occurs, I think I should upgrade to the 67 marker or the 111 marker level.
Thanks for any insight – I appreciate it very much.
