In addition…

To determine paternal lineage, EasyDNA needs to analyze the Y chromosome – this is where your forefathers have left their mark. The female sex is genetically characterized by 1 XX chromosome pair in every cell. The absence of the Y chromosome makes it scientifically impossible to for a female to carry out a paternal lineage test. Females wishing to discover their paternal line would need to ask a male biological relative to take the test for them.

  • You will receive a detailed, personalized, map of your ancestor’s journeys, their migration routes and the places in which they settled.

  • Interesting facts about your own haplogroup. Here you will even get access to information about your extended genetic cousins

What is a haplogroup?

A haplogroup is essentially your ancient extended family or ancestral paternal clan – an ancient human paternal family tree). There are 17 main haplogroups, examples include:

  • Haplogroup A is the most basal and diverse of all Y-chromosome lineages. The group is found almost exclusively in Africa, with high representation among hunter-gatherer societies in Ethiopia and Sudan.
  • Haplogroup B is an ancient lineage distributed sporadically across the African continent. The group is common among pygmy peoples, as well as hunter-gatherer groups. Just over 2% of African Americans belong to this haplogroup.
