The different parts of your results have come from analysing different types of DNA. As such your mother/fatherline results must be interpreted differently from your family ancestry results.
Your Haplogroup and subclade
The letters and numbers of your HAPLOGROUP AND SUBCLADE are the names of the signatures. Instead of identifying them by their list of markers, the scientific community has named them according to the letters of the alphabet. On that same line of thought, your personal signature ("set of markers") is called your subclade and this personal signature falls within the grouping of signatures that is your haplogroup.
Your haplogroup is your branch on the human mother/fatherline tree and your subclade is the part most unique to you, similar to a leaf at the end of a tree branch. Many of us will all share the same branch but only few of us will share the exact same leaf.
You will share an ancient (10s of thousands of years ago) ancestor with everyone who shares your haplogroup. The detail of your results will depend on which of the markers that we test for end up positive for your DNA sample and sometimes we are unable to call a subclade for you. Our markers have been chosen to provide better representation in a wider range of global populations.
The COVERAGE MAP allows you to explore the frequency that your mother/fatherline haplogroup is found in different parts of the world. Haplogroups can be associated with geographic regions, and can be and is also used in academic studies to trace the ancient migrations of early humans.
The percentages in your mother/fatherline results show you where in the world your haplogroup is most prevalent; it does not show how much your own DNA identifies with certain worldwide populations. So for example, if your mother/fatherline results say something like "England 10%", this means that 10% of the people that have been tested in England, happen to share the same haplogroup with you. As such, it is unlikely that your mother/fatherline percentages will add up to 100%, it could be more or less.
If a specific country is not listed, it is because our content curators could not reliably confirm, in their literature review of academic papers, that an percentage of that haplogroup exists in that country. Our haplogroup descriptions are updated periodically, as more published academic research becomes available on certain haplogroups.
In the HISTORY text, you can read genetic and historic information about your haplogroup. A possible story about how your haplogroup came to be.
The MIGRATION MAP can be used to understand the migration route your direct mother/fatherline ancestors took from Africa to recent times. This is a theoretical, suggested migration route for your haplogroup. This is just one of many possible migration routes your haplogroup may have taken over hundreds and thousands of years. It may or may not reach your present location.
The PHYLOGENETIC TREE shows where you fit on the mtDNA/yDNA tree. The phylogenetic tree is a visual representation of where your subclade falls within the entire human family tree of motherline/fatherline signatures. It is not meant to be a representation of your genealogical or personal family tree.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a personalised analysis of your mother/fatherline results as it relates to your family tree or your personal subclade.
