How do I get my fatherline haplogroup?
Due to the way the Y Chromosome is passed down, from Male to Male, we are able to provide fatherline Y-DNA haplogroup to anyone who takes our test and is genetically male.
Genetic females do not carry a Y Chromosome and therefore will not receive their YDNA haplogroup. To discover this information you could consider testing a direct male descendent such as a full brother or paternal uncle.
How do I get more information?
As a genetic female, you will not receive your YDNA haplogroup but you will receive an insight into your fathers genetic past via your autosomal ancestry.
Your autosomal ancestry is pieces of your DNA puzzle that makes you, you. These pieces are inherited from both your mother and father - roughly 50%. You can put these pieces together using your Living DNA ancestry test as the foundation and building on it by speaking with family members about their history as well as doing record searching and building family trees.
