What you’ll receive

You’ll receive a PDF certificate containing:

  • Your paternal haplogroup and the migratory path of your ancestors
  • Your haplogroup distribution by region and a list of famous people in your group

You’ll also receive a PDF guide containing:

  • An explanation of the test
  • The story of the human race and a timeline of human migration

In addition…

The science behind this kind of test is based on the fact that sons will inherit their Y chromosome from their father in a relatively unchanged state. Therefore the genetic profile of the Y chromosome found in the father is likely to be identical to that of his sons, setting up a process of genetic transmission whereby the same DNA profile will be passed on for thousands of generations.


Results will reveal those aspects of your paternal ancestors that are encoded and hidden deep within your DNA. Results include:

  • Your paternal haplogroup designation and a haplogroup description page;
  • A personalised map depicting your paternal ancestors’ journey and where they initially settled in the ancient world;
  • Your Y-STR profile (raw data);
  • Facts about your paternal haplogroup, including which parts of the world you can find your “genetic cousins” and famous people who share the same haplogroup as you do.
