Join Mx Y-DNA Surname Project

For Genetic Genealogy, which is the application of DNA testing to genealogy research, two areas of DNA have shown to provide information that can be used in conjunction with genealogy research. These two areas are the Y chromosome and mtDNA. These areas of the Y chromosome and mtDNA do not contain information about a persons traits or medical information. For example, the Y DNA area is known as Junk DNA by the scientists, since it does not code for personal information.
