More goodies from FTDNA

Now we can analyze the X chromosome too, as part of the Family Finder test. The X reflects our ancestry in a kind of zig-zag pattern. For details, see this blog: http://cruwys.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/family-finder-x-chromosome-matching.html. Also, be sure to check the ISOGG Wiki article that is referenced in this blog for good additional information.

If you have already done the Family Finder test, you can now view these X chromosome results on your own MyFTDNA page. If you have not yet done so, I urge you to order it, or transfer your autosomal results from Ancestry or 23andMe. It is another new opportunity to sift your matches to align them with your maternal or paternal line.
