  • X matches?

    I have 31 X matches.
    What does that mean in simple language ?
    Can that also be from my paternal line?

    *I know I get X from both father and mother but that's the extent of my knowledge on this?

    It means you share DNA with those people on your x chromosome.

    If you are a woman, yes. If you are a man, no. DNA from the X chromosome does not pass through two males in a row, so if you are a woman, while you may have gotten X DNA from your father, it will be from your father's mother's side, you can rule out your father's father's side.

    *I know I get X from both father and mother but that's the extent of my knowledge on this?
    Women get X from both father and mother but men get X from mother and Y from father.
