I have the 37 marker Y-DNA results. If I have no matches with 37 and below, what value is obtaining the higher Y-DNA tests?  It would seem that having matching above 37 would be highly unlikely. Can someone comment on this?

Depending on what Y-DNA Haplogroup you belong to, additional SNP testing may be real beneficial in terms of predicting which branch (subclade) you belong to.

Under R1b-U106, we are finding that many clades can be predicted based on off-modal markers in the 68-111 marker panels. I believe the same can be said for P-P312 (at least the portions of P312 which have a number of folks 111 marker tested).

In addition, if you happen to have a few off-modal markers in your first 12 or 37 marker panels, they may hide your matches. Testing more markers may reveal some matches which have been hidden by mutations you have.

Y-DNA - R1b M157.2 (a private/family subclade of Z6/Z352) 111 markers tested

mt-DNA - J1c2g with the following private mutations: 315.1C 522.1A 522.2C C9974T C16256T (FMS tested and submitted to GenBank)

Autosomal - shows as a typical English ancestry. Tested with 23andMe, FTDNA
