I am in no way an expert in this subject, but the Family Finder test on FTDNA is autosomal and I believe will tell you the same as the 23andMe test.  I tested myself at 23andMe and my grt uncle and dads' Y DNA at FTDNA.  I wasn't able to get too far on 23andMe because it seems like at lot of people on their on not there for ancestry and do not reply to your request.  I got the furthest when I finally tested the Family Finder on FTDNA on all 3 of us plus my mom.  

Also if you can afford it, I would test all relatives you can.  I have found my mom will match someone (male) and not match this males female sibling.  

David Neumann, are you on Gedmatch and if so, what is your #.  I have Neumanns in my line from Volhynia.

I would agree with this.  Women should try to find a male relative to test.

I have
Volhynian paternal ancestry and Vogtland, Saxony and Danzig maternal
I tested with 23andMe; they use the autosomal system they covers
much more that
clear paternal (son to father to grandfather etc.) and
maternal line (daughter
to mother to grandmother, etc.). I was able to get
my paternal and maternal
haplogroup identified through this test. My sister
was only able to get her
maternal line when she tested with 23andMe. That
tells me that for women
getting the test you may not find your paternal
haplogroup this way. Did others
find this to be the case?


Males (fathers) pass their male Y dna on to
their sons, and mothers pass
their mitochondrial dna on to their daughters.
Some dna tests offered online
only give you this. 23andMe gives you a broader
range of dna besides direct
paternal and maternal lines.
