  • Y DNA Help

    Hello and thank you for adding me to your brilliant forums I am new to Y DNA and was wondering if some kind person could point me in the right direction of a beginners guide to what I can do with my results when I get them. Any help would be of great use.

    Kind Regards
    Tom

    Without knowing which Y-DNA testing you've done, I'll assume you started with a Y-DNA 37 marker test.

    You could always start with the FTDNA Learning Center pages on Y-DNA:Additionally, these pages may help you:

        There are many possible outcomes from a Y DNA test. Sometimes you end up with a conclusive result, sometimes there are no significant matches at all. Whether the result, whatever it turns out to be, is helpful, depends on your reasons for taking the test and the specific genealogical problems you have encountered. Fortunately, there will be many people here who will be able to advise you from their personal experience when you reach that point.

            A Y chromosome DNA test (Y-DNA test) is a genealogical DNA test which is used to explore a man's patrilineal or direct father's-line ancestry. The two matched persons may find a common ancestor or MRCA, as well as whatever information the other already has about their joint patriline or father's line prior to the MRCA.
