I think it changes faster than they can post updates. I went to a lecture on Celtic DNA last week and half the audience was ahead of the presenter. I guess on one hand it's good to keep up with the latest studies but then somebody might come out next week and refute what was said with another contradictory study.

i have taken, ancesty test, fTDNA 37,64, 111, big y. I took ftdna 67 twice under two different names to see how accurate they are. Identical on both.

but i took so many, no really on genelogy but to trace where my tree began.

and after so much money, I am still not one spot closer than i was in 1981

What have you done with your paper trail? With all that is available now I find it hard to believe you have not found anything new since 1981.

Your tree begins with you. It is infinite as it goes back in time. What do you mean by tracing "where my tree began"? Have you contacted any of your DNA matches to try to identify common ancestors?
