Are you thinking about ordering the Big Y test? Do you have results but don’t know what to do with them? Do you wonder Why Y?
Well, there is now a group to help explain it all.
This week, Bill Wood started the FTDNA – BiGY Facebook Group. Less than a week old, it is already on its way to over 1,000 members!
Why is this important? Great question! Going into 2018, the paradigm of paternal lineage testing has changed. Experienced genealogists once tested Y-STR markers for genealogy and Y-SNP markers for ancient ancestry. Now, with NexGen level testing from tests like Big Y, Y-SNPs reach forward into the 20th century. This removes the frustration of false positive matches that could be a thousand years old.
