Results Before MyOrigins implementation
Family Finder provides a percentage of a person’s ethinic ancestral makeup (Native-American, Middle Eastern, African, West and East European) and can match family up to six generations (across all lineages). Autosomal DNA is tested. Results can confidently place connections to populations as far back as 1,000 years…learn more. 23andMe and other DNA population tests provides similar results.
The population percentages are obtained by comparing the test subjects to the Family Tree DNA World population database, which uses samples from scientific studies (not customer samples). As this database is updated, the test subjects’ population percentages will adjust. AncestryDNA’s test works similarly.
Y-DNA (Paternal Lineage)- Haplogroup: E1b1a8a
FTDNA and 23andMe results show that my direct lineage ancestors on my paternal side (father, father’s father, etc..) are from Africa.
MtDNA (Maternal Lineage)- Haplogroup: L3d1-5
FtDNA and 23andMe results show that my direct lineage ancestors on my maternal side (mother, mother’s mother, etc..) are from Africa. 23andMe categorizes my maternal line more specifically as L3d1-5.
