      Thanks for your input.  I pretty much had come to the same conclusion that the 23andme testing was useless for my purposes.  I just had to couch my language to the guy ;-) to let him down easily.  Given that he's a doctor and his brother is a lawyer they should be able to afford the testing without breaking a sweat.  Still I don't like to be rude to newbies.

      Good hunting,

      I done the 23andme test about three years ago, I am I-L126 (done another test at FTDNA) and my Neanderthal score is 2.8%. The result is most likely autosomnal based.
      They offer a good test for people seeking relatives but it's not so great/worthless for direct Y line ancestry, there are some good features for comparing segments with other people.

      Has anyone in our I-M223 group done the 23AndMe test? 

      Today I was asked to take a look at the 23AndMe test results for someone and give them my interpretation.  As the person was of the R haplogroup it didn't mean much to me personally, although I may have been able to help him out a wee bit.  What caught my interest though was the % of Neanderthal in his background and the statement by Ancestry that the average European, R-haplogroup person has 2.7% Neanderthal in his genetic make-up.

      Has anyone here seen a number for those of us with the I-M223 lineage?  i.e.:  what % is Neanderthal, if any?

      We have a member waiting for his BigY test results [along with hundreds of others ;-) ], and there are several Johns(t)ons awaiting their Y-DNA test results.  So far the Y-DNA test results that have come back this year are mostly R-haplogroup - no help at all :-(

      Thanks and good hunting,
