    You can convert the raw data with DNA Kit Studio to 23andme format and then run it through the Morley Y-DNA extractor. Although I am not sure if this is as reliable as an authentic 23andme test is. The best way to know haplogroup with absolute certainty is the Big Y test at Family Tree DNA.

    I used the Morley to find my (estimated) Y-DNA haplogroup. Didn't need to convert my rawdata from AncestryDNA, though. Just uploaded the rawdata file and it gave me the results.

    Don't know how precise it is, but all the different top results showed different subclades of I1a1.

    I have been very interested in getting my DNA test for years, but I seem unable to find someone trustworthy and I don't feel like sending my most personal genetic material into the internet. I heard a lot of fishy things about 23andme and it seems this thread only furthers what I heard.
    Does anybody have a list of such services on here perhaps with a comparative analyses including who owns/administers these tests? Preferable of course it would be to have a WN or racialist page/provider like I am sure (((some))) people have for their own, just for Europeans, but that does not seem to exist.

    Well, I figure that there has got to be some valid reason why FT DNA can sell an expensive test like the Big Y. Surely, you would feel disappointed if it showed the same as the prediction, though.

    I might add that I just found out that these Y-DNA predictors have given erroneous or at least differing assignments. There was a person who first tested himself with AncestryDNA and then 23andme, and 23andme gave him a different haplogroup from what Morley said after scanning through his AncestryDNA raw data. He chose to go with 23andme.

    Thank you, as a female I might not really ever know. My dad has his 23&me rejected twice due to some technical difficulties with his saliva. I then bought my brother a kit from AncestryDNA not knowing about the Y halo group issue.
