DNA Haplogroups

Trace your ancestry back over 100,000 years to its ancient roots in Africa.

The DNA Haplogroups database allows individuals who have tested their Y-DNA or mtDNA to view their placement in the DNA Haplogroup Phylogenetic tree of mankind. Haplogroups are ancient family groups dating back tens of thousands of years. Read about what is currently known about the haplogroup that you belong to, see how your haplogroup diversified from its roots in Africa, and view the ancient migration pattern of your mtDNA or Y-DNA haplogroup within and/or out of Africa. If you have tested your Y-DNA or mtDNA Subclade, read about what is currently known about your subclade.
