The Y chromosome & your ancestry test
A whole vast, library of ancestral genetic data is stored in the genes making up your Y chromosomes. By analyzing your Y chromosome we can tell you which haplogroups’ DNA most closely coincides with yours. Think of haplogroups as small clans or groups of people sharing similar genetic characteristics. Y haplogroups (or paternal haplogroups) are those haplogroups which belong exclusively to males and their paternal line of descent. These haplogroups show us the migration patterns of our ancestors and the places in which they settled. They are an invaluable tool in ancestry and genealogy research. To determine your haplogroup we analyze single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs which constitute up to 90% of all genetic variations between individuals. These variations are repeated sequences of DNA but whilst all males will have these sequences, the number of repeated sequences will vary from person to person.
We will directly compare your Y chromosome with that of the many paternal haplogroups in or database and see which ones you have inherited your genetic material from.

easyDNA New Zealand will not only provide you with your haplogroup affiliation but also indicate the parts of the world where your paternal ancestors settled, hence giving you your very own haplogroup migration map.
Besides all this, you will also receive an interesting and insightful analysis of your haplogroups, which will tell you, amongst many things, parts of the world where you can find your genetic relatives.

What do you need to determine my ancestry?
We just need a tiny DNA sample to map out your paternal lineage. To help you carry out the test, we will send you a kit which contains all you need to collect the samples.
