    Y-dna test? Which one?

    Good morning to all users,

    I'm new in this forum and I'm a newbie in genetic also.

    I would take an y-dna test, but I don't know what.

    I read a lot of topics in this forum, but I found two great factions:
    1) 23andme supporters;
    2) FTDna supporters.

    On order to know my haplogroup and, I hope, my people of origin, what test best suits my wish?
    I saw that FTDna offers many tests: is it a good choice the y-dna 111, or it doesn't add anything to - for example - the y-dna 67?

    Can you help me in taking a decision?

    Thanks a lot,
    Anscaricus

    If you're mainly interested in Y-DNA, go for FTDNA. They let you do follow-up tests that get into the details of your precise haplogroup. They also have a larger private Y-DNA database, and more Y-DNA specific projects. 67 markers should be more than enough, but they let you upgrade in case you turn out to be in a clade with a lot of convergence (or something) and need that 111.

    I would recommend FTDNA for the same reasons as for Y-DNA.
