The combination of both of these factors accounts for the much higher
number of genetic matches that are seen on autosomal DNA genetic match
lists. Reporting less than 100 genetic matches is not uncommon for the
results of a Y-DNA test; I have seen cases where an individual had no
Y-DNA genetic matches reported at all.
Yes -- as a point of reference, with FTDNA, I have over 19,040 autosomal
matches, but only 179 Y-DNA matches at the 12-marker level.
