DNA Surname Test (Y-chromosome Test)

Designed for comparing male descendants of a common male ancestor, the Y-chromosome test (or surname test) is especially helpful in determining how closely two males may be related in a directly paternal lineage. The Pedigree on the right demonstrates the inheritance pattern of the Y-chromosome.

An analysis to find a Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) is possible using a combination of researched genealogies, Y-STR DNA test results, and statistical formulas. GeneTree, the testing laboratory for the Carmichael DNA Surname Project, is offering the cutting edge of high-tech genealogical research.

Y-chromosome markers provide researchers (i.e., forensic scientists, evolutionary biologists,

genealogists, and anthropologists) a useful tool for studying human migration patterns, evolution, paternally linked relationships and identification. It has also been used to help locate the geographical origin of all human beings.

The Y-chromosome is of particular interest to researchers because of its variability found among different human populations. To characterize the Y-chromosome the DNA is genotyped at 26 different locations.

GeneTree uses this service to measure the likelihood of paternally-linked relationships. Furthermore, the data can also be used to research your own Y-chromosome DNA profile (NOTE: There are a number of publications that will assist you with researching your DNA profile and how it relates to DNA profiles of published populations. Contact us if you are interested in receiving a list of publications that will assist you with this research).
