There is no problem, we are glad to have them.

However, we need deeper testing.  About 75% of the British Isles R-L21* haplotypes I have are tested out to 67 markers.  This is very helpful to classifying folks in to potential "varieties" or deep ancestry clusters.

About 50% of our non-Isles haplotypes are are tested out to 67 markers.  Since there are fewer numbers of tested results, period, it is critical that we get European Continental** haplotypes up to 67 markers.

** Please note I have no intent of slighting the American Continental folks who don't know their genealogical ancestors in the Old World.  After all, the original army for these rebellious New World colonists was called the "Continental Army."
I guess everything is relative.  The Old World probably was the New World for a bunch of SW/Central Asian immigrants to Europe who spoke an Indo-European Language.

It would be nice if some of the low marker 50% continental L21s could be persuaded to upgrade themselves.  The main selling point I suppose is that L21 still covers a large area and that finding clusters from 67 markers is perhaps the only way we could break this down further at present.   How much do FTDNA charge to upgrade nos of markers to 67 from 37 or lower?

Here's the STR upgrade price list:

12 to 25        $  49
12 to 37        $  99
12 to 67        $189
25 to 37        $  49
25 to 67        $148
37 to 67        $  99

Probably costly enough to limite the numbers of L21s rushing for the more major upgrades and too much to see the project meagre funds stretching to too many free major upgrades I would imagine.
