YDNA upgrades #dna


Roberta Berman
 

Hi,
Through the magic of DNA I learned that my gr-grandfather's Opinheim
line matches the YDNA of someone whose family is in Majorca and has
lived there at least as far back as the 1600s.

My gr-grandfather was born about 1825 in Brest-Litovsk, Belarus, quite
a distance >from Majorca. My cousin did the YDNA test at 37 markers
and is in the Iberian-Ashkenaz Project and the J1 Project. It has
been suggested that the YDNA test be upgraded to 67 markers and that
we also do a BigY test.

What would we learn >from the BigY? Where do we go >from here?

Thank you,
