  • Question About Matches

    Hello,

    I am female. If some of my matches are male, would our shared ancestry be on the paternal or maternal side of my match...or could they be from either side?

    Thanks

    Either side.

    The test involves DNA from every single line in your tree, both from your father's and mother's side. The test is not able to specify from which side or which line the DNA is coming. You would have to compare family trees with your match and find common surnames and ancestral locations to get some clues as to in which line the common ancestors may be found.
