Maternal Lineages (mtDNA)
Direct maternal lineages can be traced with a mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) test. Children, both male and female, inherit their mtDNA from their mothers. MtDNA testing can be used as evidence in genealogy and for personal ethnic ancestry. It is commonly used in studies to show migrations of population groups across time and geography.

Paternal Lineages (Y-DNA)
Direct paternal lineages are traced with Y-DNA tests from the male Y-Chromosome. Y-DNA testing lends itself to recent surname studies, personal ethnic ancestry testing, and the study of historic connections between populations and geography.
This is an area for those who are new to DNA testing for genealogy can ask about Y-DNA STR based tests and their test results. All may view this forum, but you must register and sign in to post.

Universal Lineage Testing (Autosomal DNA)
Using autosomal DNA allows genealogists to match cousins and close relatives from all of their family lines. Autosomal DNA also allows those interested in personal ethnic origins to discover connections to geographic based ethnic groups in recent and distant times.
