Re: More about using Y-DNA testing #dna

Thanks Ivan,

Yes, those are autosomal SNPs, which are not the same as ySTRs and
are not used for direct male-line testing, which is the purpose of
STRs on the Y chromosome. You can currently examine about 1 million
SNPs by buying a commercial test with deCODEme, or about 550,000 for
half the cost with 23andme (for health and genealogy) or Family Tree
DNA (even cheaper, for genealogy only).

Best,

A.J. Levin
