Re: Mike Hartley BigY
I see that Mike Hartley's results are at the Big Tree site awaiting analysis with several others in the lower right in pink:

I did some additional analysis of Michael's results from his raw data. There's not too much more to add, but I did find a couple other variants that Joel and Michael share: 22425308 G A 25297201 T A 26310965 T C As a brief explanation of this, 22425308 (for example) is the position on the Y chromosome. The ancestral value (meaning the one that pretty much everyone else has) for this position is G, but both of them have an A here. However, all three of these are in rather questionable areas on the chromosome where poor reads can occur, so it's possible (though not very likely) that these are both mis-reads that just happen to be the same, or that some other relative could also have this variant, but the test might not catch it due to its location. I also found one solid INDEL that they both share: 18721623 A AA Think of an INDEL (short for Insertion/Deletion) as a 'hiccup' on the DNA - where the transfer of DNA from father to son results in one or more extra segments of the DNA getting injected, or where a segment of the DNA disappears. In this case, the ancestral marker is A, but you two both have an extra A (thus AA) here. We don't typically count INDELs as "SNPs", but this is certainly a high quality mutation that you almost certainly got from a common ancestor, so it can be used for comparing future matches. I'm sure Mike W. and Alex will likely find some additional novel variants for Michael when they do their analysis, but I think this is probably everything that they share that is worth tracking. I'll send the data to Michael Sager soon and ask him to update the FTDNA tree and update your terminal SNPs to A11132. Jared On Fri, Mar 17, 2017 at 10:57 AM, Michael W.
