Y-DNA and advanced testing

Are you ready to see what more you can learn about your DNA? Notice! This applies only to male testers and Y-DNA. (Of course, women can participate by finding a male relative to do the actual testing.)

Family Tree DNA launched the Big Y a few years ago, and a handful of other companies have followed, slowly expanding databases and providing the means to learn more about the Y tree of mankind. At the same time, some dedicated genealogists are beginning to make inroads into tweaking large family databases and solving long-standing questions about descent lines from 500 or more years ago.

To learn about what might be done in your own family project, see Blaine Bettinger's blog. Also, this link will take you to a new study just published in the Journal of One-Name Studies.
