What company do I test with? To help you make this an easier question to answer, you must consider what would be best for you. Here is a Comparison Chart of the DNA testing companies and what markers they test. If you are testing for genealogical purposes you should always consider, "the more markers, the better," phrase. When looking at the Comparison Chart, it is easy to see that FTDNA offers the most comprehensive Y-DNA tests with the most markers. Even if you decide against FTDNA, please use the Contact page on this website to request that you be included in the "Genetic Census" of Phillips Y-DNA. You just might belong to a Family Group or may match a single Phillips. If the latter is the case, you will form a new Family Group while at the same time gain a genetic cousin.
