Glenn York “Y-DNA, In Depth and Big Y”

Y-DNA is passed down through the direct paternal line from fathers to their sons and can be used to explore many generations. This presentation looks at the Y-DNA testing available through Family Tree DNA and the information these tests provide on direct male ancestral lines. We will also look at how Y-DNA matches can be interpreted, as well as Y-DNA surname projects and how they can advance your research. Finally, I will suggest how the Big-Y tests can provide additional information on the paternal line.
