I just got my results from AncestryDNA.
What are some ways to find my haplogroup through my raw DNA data?
I obtained my Y-DNA haplogroup from my AncestryDNA raw DNA file using the first method detailed in this link: https://www.geneticgenealogist.net/2016/01/how-to-get-ydna-haplogroup-from.html
In short, it goes through 3 steps:
1/ you convert your AncestryDNA raw DNA file into 23andme format using a small VBS program you can obtain from here:
You simply have to put it in the same directory as your unzipped DNA file (txt file), double click, and it will do the conversion and create a new file in the same directory named yourdnafilename_Edited.txt
2/ You install this program and load the 23andme format dna file into it:
(it requires .NET Framework 4.0, so you might have to install that first)
Go to File -> Save, and save into another text file
3/ Copy the content of this text file into the text area on this website, and run the predictor:
You should get your Y-DNA haplogroup now, which is the result labeled "most likely". If you get BT or F as "most likely" (most people have those, so it's almost redundant), then the next prediction is the most likely (and relevant) for you (there should be more "green" in it than the other options). If you have a problem or a question, either refer to the article linked above, or ask me. Good luck!
My understanding is that the current normal AncestryDNA product, which tests Autosomal DNA, does not include the Y-DNA or mtDNA SNPs that would be useful for determining your haplogroup(s).
Ancestry sells separate, more expensive DNA tests for Y-DNA and mtDNA:
(Their competitors offer similar tests, so it might be worth shopping around.)
Assuming Ancestry doesn't do the work for you and present a pretty graph or what have you with the results, you would likely be able to download the raw data and figure out the haplogroup yourself using the ISOGG's database:
They call the y chromosome "chromosome 24".
They only test 885 SNP's though.
They also test 17,604 SNP's on the x chromosome (labeled as chromosome 23), plus 440 SNPs labeled as chromosome 25 that are either from chromosome X or from the pseudoautosomal regions of the Y chromosome.
I do not know a tool, as of yet, for filtering these sections out to determine haplogroups but I'm still searching.
I transferred my Ancestry autosomal test to this site and it gave me my haplo group that matched the Y test I had from National Geographic and FamilyTree:
