Does anyone know if there are any red hair SNPs in the FF test? The 696,800 SNPs that FTDNA test in family finder only represents .024% of our dna. My son has 1% Neanderthal dna so that is a lot.

Does anyone think that the family finder test is value for money and what good is it for family history?

I have tested with both family Finder and 23andMe. The latter has more tools, but the former is improving. I have probably had better success communicating with Family Finder matches.

We only need to have one SNP different to others that will identify us and we have a lot of them in the autosomal dna.

I have just recieved my FF results. Orcadian 96.77% South Asian 3.23%. I have 693,720 SNPs to examine.
I have also to my surprise a lot of cousins in America that I didn't know about.
