      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.


      Yours aye,


      Bob McLaren

        Hi everyone,

      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.

      - Tom Weingart
