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: drive.google....

The service you used, Living DNA, seems to try on its web site to avoid telling much about what kind of testing it is doing, especially avoiding standard terms. Digging though its help system, it seems that is using SNP testing of autosomes and of sex chromosomes and mitochondria via an Illumina Orion testing chip. The results include paternal and maternal ...

They are effectively the same result with different levels of granularity / detail. There are a couple things to keep in mind in regards to Y Haplogroups in general and the four main things are to keep in mind are: Granularity / resolution of specific testing services and specific tests you purchase. The Y-Tree is currently being updated monthly as more ...

First a comment on terminology – AncestryDNA and none of the autosomal DNA testing companies do "DNA sequencing". They do use single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and/or short tandem repeats (STR) testing to look at areas of common variation in the genome. But just to be clear, these companies are not doing sequencing of any significant part of ...

mtDNA and X-DNA mostly are not related. If two persons share the same mtDNA haplogroup it just means that their common direct maternal ancestor lived ~10000 years ago (when this haplogroup was developed). It means nothing more. Of course, this person may be your sister, for example, or maternal aunt/uncle. But you can prove or disprove it by comparing your ...

The answer is actually relatively straight forward that you started to lead onto yourself. It really comes down to the level of testing the individual has done, and further testing may actually further subdivide subgroup 8 as specific SNPs are identified to categorize them. Note the Y-111 test is a Y-STR test, not an Y-SNP test. You need SNP testing to ...

I do not believe they provided a download mechanism. The tree is hierarchical, and html with hyperlinks to lower levels with color coding was an efficient way for ISOGG to create and maintain the information. They are continuously updating it with new information and maintain a yearly snapshot of the tree, so they may not want people downloading copies that ...

The thing to realize is that DNA science is new and quickly evolving as more people test and the science gets better and more granular. As such it was identified a couple years ago that Haplogroups need to be fairly often revised as new discoveries are made. The last major update was in 2014, and K2B2 used to generically just be K-M526. Although K-M526 ...

The study of Haplogroups is evolving so quickly that any books you may find on them are surely either already out of date, or expected to be out of date soon. The best sources for Haplogroups are online where the information can and is being updated in real time. The easiest way to find references to a Haplogroup you're interested in is to just enter it ...

A match on maternal haplogroup may indicate a common ancestor on the direct maternal line (mother, mother's mother, mother's grandmother, etc). The inheritance pattern for the X chromosome is more complex. This article explains: https://dna-explained.com/2017/02/07/using-x-and-mitochondrial-dna-charts-by-charting-companion/ Keep in mind that in the 1800'...

J2a1b1 has been found among the Uighur population of Xinjiang. This is interesting to me because my Y-DNA is also J2a1b1 and I am Ashkenazi Jewish, with my paternal line coming from northern Lithuania.

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 previously sold more expensive DNA tests for Y-DNA and mtDNA, but no longer do. FamilyTreeDNA does, however: https://www.familytreedna.com/ You'll need to ...

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: https://ytree.morleydna.com/extractFromAutosomal

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 ...

The Y-DNA test and the mtDNA test are not very precise and can't prove close relationship. But the otherwise is working - these test can DISapprove close relationship. Your results mean that you have one common male ancestor with that person and you have one common female ancestor with that person. These common ancestors may lived in the same time or in the ...

The Big-Y will definitively answer this question. With the other tests you might not find out what you want to know. Plus the Big-Y tests for known and unknown Y SNPs, not just a few known ones. Your test could advance our general knowledge of the Y-DNA haplogroup tree.

First, the map that you referring to in plaintiff is about haplogroup distribution and thats all. Difference in genetic (drift) mostly goes linear with time. Hence the proper way is by using a tree diagram as shown in the Wikipedia page about haplogroup, which as you mentioned seen with khoi-san on top of tree as the oldest branch. The lower the branch, the ...

You need to name things precisely i.e. your sister can't have Y chromosome, so it is incorrect to talk about HAPLOGROUP (it's all about classification of Y choromosome), but to talk about MITOGROUP (i.e. the type of mtDNA) or mtDNA haplogroup. The haplogroups and mitogroups may have the same abbreviations, but completely different meaning. For example, ...

Ancestry tests enough SNPs to get a high level haplogroup. The other answers discussed getting the Y and the Morley method works well BUT women do not have a Y so the only haplogroup they can get is the mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA). Uploading to Promethease.com which will show health results in your DNA can provide a haplogroup but its not easy to use and I ...
