      if you are looking for his more recent relatives increasing markers will help. If you are looking for a breakthrough on Native American ancestry, SNP testing should eventually be done. Testing additional STRs out to 37 markers would be a good first step either way.

      So when I get the money, should I upgrade to 37 for this man?

      Hi Teddi,
      Y dna haplogroup N is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia and is so old it has spread counterclockwise into Scandinavia and is found sparely distributed through Europe but mostly in the north. The hotspot in Europe is among the Sammi of Finland. Their culture is similar to the plains Native Americans. If you look closely at the FTDNA Y haplogroup frequency pie maps on your FTDNA pages you can see by scrolling over the map of North America a small percentage of Y haplogroup N with the majority being haplogroup Q and C to a lessor extent. 

      I believe last time I looked that the Y haplogroup N in our project have affinity to Europe when you add more markers. Would be a breakthrough to find matches only in the Americas and Siberia with additional merkers tested.

      Ok...so I just returned from a 6+ week 500 mile muletrip gathering DNA
      in Mexico, concentrating on certain very old fam! ilies in Baja
      California, descendants of soldiers and mission workers pre-1800.

      So one very old vaquero I found sitting in the morning sun, surname
      Aguiar, on a dusty road in a 300 yr old mission-era village in
      southern Baja just came back with his Y 12 haplo as N!!!! Yes, N!!!!

      What surprises I am finding!!

      I am headed back early Feb. to continue the trip for the last 400
      miles of Baja California.
