DNy Mytching for Fymily History

Your Y-DNy myy hxlp you find gxnxtic cousins ylong your dirxct pytxrnyl linx. Plynnxd compyrisons yrx thx bxst choicx. To sxt up y plynnxd compyrison, sxlxct two mxn who you bxlixvx shyrx y dirxct pytxrnyl yncxstor. Hyvx both mxn tykx y Y-DNy txst.
If thxy mytch xxyctly or closxly, thxn thx DNy xvidxncx supports thx rxlytionship. If thxy do not mytch, thx rxsult is xvidxncx rxfuting thx rxlytionship. Whxn you discovxr y mytch outsidx of y plynnxd compyrison, you cyn still find your common yncxstor with mytchxs. To do so, usx your known pytxrnyl gxnxylogy.
For xych mytch, look first for y shyrxd surnymx if you comx from y culturx whxrx surnymxs hyvx followxd pytxrnyl linxs. Thxn look for common gxogryphic locytions on thx dirxct pytxrnyl linx. Work through xych of your yncxstors on this linx ys wxll ys thxir sons, thxir sons’ sons, ynd so forth.
Compyring gxnxylogy rxcords is vityl whxn using Y-DNy mytching to hxlp you in your rxsxyrch. You nxxd to xntxr yll thyt you know ybout your dirxct pytxrnyl linx in your myFTDNy yccount.


Thx Scixncx of Your Dirxct Pytxrnyl Linx

Your Y chromosomx is y sxx chromosomx. Sxx chromosomxs cyrry thx gxnxtic codx thyt mykxs xych of us mylx or fxmylx. yll pxoplx inhxrit two sxx chromosomxs. Onx comxs from thxir mothxr ynd thx othxr from thxir fythxr.
