Find your ancient paternal haplogroup with Y-DNA
Y-DNA Haplogroups are ancient paternal family groups. All males carry Y-DNA, which is inherited along the paternal line. Y-DNA testing allows you to trace the ancestry of your direct paternal lineage (your father’s, father’s, father’s… paternal lineage). The Y-DNA test can only be taken by males, because only males have Y-DNA.
Find your ancient maternal haplogroup with mtDNA
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) Haplogroups are ancient maternal family groups. MtDNA is the DNA that is found in the mitochondria of cells, and is passed down strictly from mother to child. MtDNA testing allows you to trace the ancestry of your direct maternal lineage (your mother’s, mother’s, mother’s… maternal lineage). Both males and females have mtDNA so both males and females can take the mtDNA test.
Compare your DNA to our large database of ancient maternal and paternal DNA Clans and Ancient Haplogoups.
This web app compares your mtDNA and Y-DNA profiles ethnic and indigenous populations from around the world and to ancient maternal and paternal haplogroups to identify your Maternal and Paternal Clans and your Ancient Haplogroups.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have mtDNA and/or Y-DNA makers to use this free web app?
Yes, this web app is only available to users who have taken the mtDNA and/or Y-DNA STR Test. Once you have mtDNA and Y-DNA markers, you can have limitless free access to more Genebase-powered free web applications from a variety of ancestry categories like royalty, world leaders, founding fathers, forensic finds, and more!
How do I use this web app?
Genebase will let you know when your mtDNA and/or Y-DNA STR marker results are ready. Testing begins as soon as samples arrive at the laboratory, and the results are released and uploaded immediately to your user account once testing is complete. You can simply log into your Genebase account to access all the free Ancestry web app.
Yes, Genebase works with user accounts. If you have already taken the mtDNA and Y-DNA STR test, you can simply sign in to your Genebase account to view your match results on the web. If you have not tested your mtDNA and/or Y-DNA STR marker, you will need to create a Genebase account with the registration key on your test kit.
Genebase performs analysis on your DNA data. To get more markers, upgrades can be ordered directly from your Genebase user account. All prices shown are in U.S. dollars, and all orders will be charged in U.S. dollars.
Both males and females can take the mtDNA test to trace their maternal line. Only males can take the Y-DNA test to trace their paternal line because only males have Y-DNA. For a female to trace her own paternal line, she would need to test a paternal relative, such as her brother, father, paternal uncles (father’s brother), paternal male cousins (father’s brother’s sons).
