I hadn’t seen any videos comparing Ancestry.com DNA test results versus Family Tree DNA.com results, so I figured I would post something to inform people about the differences. *I wanted to clarify, in the video I mention “mDNA”, I meant “mtDNA”. Also, I had my uncle further test his Y-DNA using the E-Z827 SNP Pack, not to further test the Y markers at 111. I believe testing 111 markers would hone in your DNA matches while the SNP pack is to narrow down where your ancestors came from. The genetic stuff is confusing! Feel free to leave me any comments or questions!
*Update – My Uncle’s confirmed halpogroup is E-CTS1096. E-CTS1096 is a subgroup of E-M215. FTDNA states: “Haplogroup E is an African lineage. It is currently believed that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa with the Bantu agricultural expansion. E is also the most common lineage among African Americans. It is a diverse haplogroup with many branches and is found distributed throughout Africa today. It is also found at a very low frequency in North Africa and the Middle East.”
** Let me post all the halpgroups that I am aware of:
U5a2b – Mom’s Maternal (from Germany)
E-CTS1096 – Mom’s Paternal (from the Genoa region)
L2a1c – Dad’s Mom’s Maternal (Sciacca, Sicily)
E-M78 – Dad’s Mom’s Paternal (Sciacca, Sicily)
