  • Introduction to DNA Testing for Genealogy Research

    The Y chromosome is passed from father to son unchanged, except for a mutation about every 500 generations. Testing the Y chromosome will provide you with a genetic surname signature consisting of from 12 to 67 numbers depending on what test you order. By comparing this signature to others with your surname, you can determine if you are related.
