Re: I wish to hire a DNA analyst to interpret the results of a Big Y-700 FTDNA Sample #dna

The Big Y tests (500 and then 700) place the tester’s Y-DNA at the end of a twig on a small branch of a larger branch of a still larger branch etc of the Y-DNA tree.  Some lucky testers will discover that there are other testers on their tiny twig, and those other testers may be relatives within genealogical time (or not).  For most of us, I suspect, we will just find ourselves alone on our own little twig.  For me, Big Y has been genealogically useless, but for others it has been helpful.  For all of us, it would be nice if FTDNA provided a plain language explanation for how to interpret the data, which FTDNA displays in a quirky manner.  We shouldn’t have to hire experts to tell us what it means.
