I thinking about using the DNA analysis company called "23AndME" for y-DNA work and would like to know the experiences of anyone who has used them. If you have used their services or know about someone else's experiences please reply to this Post.

I reviewed the 23AndMe website and couldn't find how many markers are tested and what the markers are. In my conversations with the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland they told we I needed at least 37 markers to make progress. In fact I read that some who are studying the R1b group suggest 67 markers. The other item I could not find sharing capability with the DNA info with other organizations.

I found this while browsing the Geno 2.0 site. "23andMe is primarily a medically focused testing company, examining markers that are associated with disease risk. While they do offer some insights into ancestry, that is not their primary focus."

I found this page http://www.isogg.org/wiki/Wiki_Welcome_Page which has a DNA testing company comparison towards the upper right of the page.
