Each one of us has one or more private SNPs in our family tree. SNPs are the important branches of our family trees. Private SNPs have timeframes between 400 and 600 years. They define our ancestral origins in the past. That for me is the most important goal at present. Will the Geno 2.0 give me the answers that I am searching for? I dont know, but if it doesnt then there has to be another way.
What is your current hg and subclade?
Whether or not Geno 2 shines new light for you depends largely on your current testing status. The Geno 2 chip is programmed with "known" SNPs (i.e. known to science, if not to you or me).
Geno 2 does not go looking for hitherto unknown SNPs, as does say the Walk Through the Y project, or the trawling of the 1000 Genomes Project data by interested and knowledgeable persons. SNPs currently declared to be private/family have been discovered by those means.
Each of us can use our 67 y-test as a modal haplotype for our own families going back as far as 600 years. We dont need to test our relatives. The people that have tested have shown us how close they are.
I don't follow your point here. How does a 67 marker haplotype equate to a distance of 600 years?
