(if you could) I've always been curious how other's feel about their results - especially after the excitement of just getting your results wears off and you've learned a thing or two. Plus, I've always been curious about how to make a poll and we don't have any! :D

ptdna = paternal. How about Y DNA instead?

I don't think I would change anything anywhere, possibly with the exception of it I found my Y-dna was Norman I migth feel tempted to wish it was something more barabaric.
I am glad my mt-dna is J not H or U
My y-dna has been interesting enough in the last few months with numerous snp tests which have helped confirm additions to thbe haplotree and now there is a new snp which will probably take a while to sort out
The autosomal dna is ok it's just the people the other end who might not respond, I live in hopoe that one day I will find/confirm some relationships
There are health issues but I probably wouldn't change that either

I wouldn't change anything - Everything came out pretty much as i expect in terms of autosomal, of course i couldn't predict my y or mt dna, although both are interesting - neither create more questions than answers. In terms of distant cousins i think i have about 540 on 23&me which seems a reasonable amount, and have tried to make connections with a few, will have to go and give it another look soon!
All in all everything matches up to what i know pretty much, and what i didn't know is not unexpected, but perfectly reasonable.

Now it's just a matter of refining certain things, like taking a deeper look into my y-lineage to see if i get any good matches etc.

I guess the thing that is the most interesting is that it is tempting to say, 'oh i turned out as this or that' say in terms of y or mt lineages, when in fact you have always been that, so while it feels new - it isn't new at all, just visible.

Kind Regards,

I must say, my journey into genetics dna, both my y and autosomal, have yielded surprises and gains. My paternal grandfather, who is unknown to the family, was rumored to be of one nationality. According to the science, this was proved to be false. So, I have learned a good deal of new and interesting information about my ancestry since I started my search back in 2006. I have even learned some new facts about my maternal side when we thought this ancestry was well documented. My only regret, is that I have yet to find any matches, even remotely, regarding my paternal grandfather's ancestry. I thought at first a ydna test would yield some matches. Then, I realized that I could gain more genetic information through autosomal dna. I have found matches for both sides of my maternal grandparents and some for my paternal grandmother, but none to date for the side I know the least about.

ADMIXTURE or model based autosomal components are an ambiguous description of a persons ancestry and are not at the same level of precision as are results from Y and mtDNA SNPs, which are a much more precise way of determining spatial and phylogenetic ancestry, ADMIXTURE components vary depending on selection of SNPs, quality and quantity of individuals in a given Dataset, in addition to the assumed putative ancestral clusters (K) chosen, these components are useful for a relative comparison of an individual's component profiles with that from the group he/she comes from, or thinks he/she comes from, the components do not however say that much about the group's history in terms of phylogeny no matter the myriad of labels they may be given.

As I was adopted and knew nothing about my father's people I had hoped I would find some close Y relatives. After 5 years with FTDNA's data base...nothing at all close. I have done 111 Marker, Family Finder and now, just to help DNA research, the WTY. Ah well.

My mother's grandmother on her father's side was 1/2 Creek Indian from Alabama

I would change my Y-DNA, it's a bit frustrating being R-P312 (L176.2 negative)with no known downstream clade and little heading on what private SNP's would be most wise to test for. I envy those whose deep clade results yielded something more definitive meaning they don't have to spend as much money to find the information they seek. :p
R-P312 clades tested for: DF99+ P312+ DF27- DF19- U152- L21- L459- Z245- L238- Z2245- Z2247-

The Global Similarity Tool @ 23&Me throws many (all?) African Americans on some continuum of Mozabite depending on the degree of admixture. I call Mom "Every Woman" with her bars all falling between 65.11 to 66.56. https://www.23andme.com/you/community/thread/8494/ - I just posted on the FF thread & wonder if it might be a bit better or their Mozabite = Middle Eastern.
