I payed for the Genographic test but I also had another one at the Univ. for free. Cool huh?
Did the uni one do more markers? We did my mother's father through Genographic and he came back R1b and looking at the specific markers it suggests a Germanic subset of that. But I wanted to get more tests as it only gives a small number of markers to distinguish. For my Dad's we took a 43 marker test and it came back I1c and closest matches were with what is called "Nordic I1c", so a continental Northern European origin. No super-close matches yet though. It ruined my theory that my father is actually an alien though -- I thought they might respond and ask me to send HUMAN DNA
update: Going to get my parents to try the autosomal DNA test now as I had some interesting, but inconclusive, results. I had a number of failed markers but did show what they classify as Native American, in addition to European. Test did not pick up any African. I have not yet done the Euro test that attempts to break down among different subgroups, as I was waiting to see what the first Dnaprint said ... so I am using that money to sponsor my parents. Looking forward to seeing the results.
