What will a Y-DNA test tell me?

  • Identify your family’s detailed placement on the Great Family Tree of Mankind

  • Discover your surname history and how it relates to other families

  • Validate your known paternal line genealogy and get additional clues for research beyond the historical records

  • Your results may enable the creation of a new branch representing a patrilineal ancestor’s genetic signature that you might be able to identify

  • You might be able to see if your paternal line is related to ancient DNA from archaeological remains, and when your common ancestor lived.
