Today we publicly announced DNA Ancestry, one of our most exciting new ventures to date – offering DNA testing as a way to discover family members. Now, you can take a simple cheek swab DNA test and have our laboratory analyze the DNA to yield information about your family line. Once your results are in, you can visit DNA Ancestry to compare your results with other DNA Ancestry users in our ever-growing database. DNA testing and comparison opens new opportunities to break through family history dead ends and find family members you never knew existed.

Why is it not possible to trace paternal DNA in a woman? Even though we do not have Y chromosomes, we have DNA. Do we get half our genes from each parent? So, why can’t you tell me anything about my father’s side of the family?

when in the Y-DNA group there is a menu at the top and one of the options is to Compare DNA. When I click on it I get an error message saying sorry cant find the group and yet there are definitely two of us that have our Y-DNA posted and both have joined the Hempstead Jackson Group? What am I doing wrong?
