  • How to investigate a female's paternal line

    I am trying to get DNA kits for both myself & my wife. I was getting a package of Autosomal, mtDNA, & y-DNA kits for each of us. My wife can get her twin brother to submit a sample for the y-DNA kit. Would she send the kit under her profile so that all her information is together or does he have to submit the sample & then give her results? Can a y-DNA kit be submitted under a female's profile? Thanks for any answers.

    DNA tests and accounts are gender specific.

    Each person has there own account/login, one can not submit two different peoples samples under one account.

    If you ordered a kit for wife which included yDNA, this kit will be register as a male kit.
    When ordering wifes kit you would select that it is for a female.

    you would have to order the yDNA for brother in law separately

      that would be interesting.... from my Y from my father's Y, from his mother's X from her father's Y.

        yes...this will be interesting. But "from his mother's x from her father's y" isn't exactly the way it is going to happen.

        The mother's x is totally separate from her father's Y. No direct connection.

        Perhaps you meant "father's x" ?
