For the female half of the test, the “mutations” of your mtDNA will be analyzed to determine your maternal lineage (the DNA of your mother, her mother and so forth, all the way back). Your mtDNA mutations are researched in the Cambridge Mitochondrial DNA Concordance and other authoritative databases. A history of your particular female lineage is presented as part of the report, with comparative frequencies in world populations.
For the male half of the test, the Y-STRs of your Y chromosome determine your father’s male line or pedigree, which follows the surname through history (i.e., that of your father’s father’s father’s etc., all the way back). Your father’s haplotype is searched in the Y-STR Haplotype Reference Database and other online resources to find matching males with the same male ancestor as you within the past 500 years or so.
