Help and Guidance

How it Works - Part 1

  • We provide you with a simple home mouth swab kit to make sending us your sample easy.
  • Our laboratory then examines your Y-DNA from the Y-Chromosome present in males as part of our MyAncestry 3.0 Chip test.
  • We examine and count the number or repeats of the genetic pattern at standardised locations on the DNA helix - also known as markers.



How it Works - Part 2

  • Your results will tell you your paternal haplogroup (a genetic group that tells us about deep ancestry), your sub-group and your paternal migration routes up until recent times.

  • You can find out where your subtype first arose, how old it is and where it spread to.

  • Your personal information and DNA are kept secure and private.

  • The detailed and easy-to-read test results and certificate will be with you in 12-14 weeks​.
