    Sorry for offtopic guys, just found it interesting to mention since very few TA members are this subclade (I don't know any other)



    Leto you should test your own R1a
    Well, ordering Y-37 won't help much and deeper testing is pretty damn expensive. My paternal line is from Minsk oblast, Central Belarus, most likely some kind of Z282 but who knows.

    Yeah, AncestryDNA gave me 17% "Germanic Europe" when I have no known German heritage. Maybe a similar thing happened with you. 23andMe only showed a tiny percentage which seems far more accurate.

    I did YSEQ N1a-VL29 Panel for $88 to arrive at my detailed subclade, I thought it was worth it so you may want to consider. Of course I get no matching because I chose to take this route, but I felt the hundreds of dollars for the Big Y was cost prohibitive, for me.

    Do you need to mail them your DNA sample?

    this is actually do to a process called recombination, by which we aren't exactly 25% each of our grandparents because we're only a random assortment of genes from both grandparents on one side or the other, so technically you can be 50% one grandparent and 0% the other although the odds are super super low

    I'll repeat myself and say that this is exceedingly unlikely to be a case of zero genetic inheritance from a great-grandparent. Such a thing has to be incredibly rare, if it's even possible. AncestryDNA just has a lousy ethnicity estimate, which we all kind of knew already.

    Living DNA goes deeper on haplogroups on their tests. They do not do a full sequence, but it is considered medium whereas 23andme is basic. Some reported to have received their full clades on mtDNA. Their ancestry test is currently €69 on Black Friday sale.
