Ancestral Origins per my Y-DNA

FamilyTreeDNA -there are many result categories, one is Ancestral Origins based on my Y-DNA (paternal test) which a Person who test for their Y-DNA will show results (based on submitted sample) are compared to Other Y-DNA of those who have Submitted to FamilyTreeDNA from the USA and World.

My YDNA Result Chart below shows columns by Country* | Match Total* | Country Total* | Percentage* | Comment*

The Y-DNA – Ancestral Origins page allows you to view the ancestry information for your matches from one of our Y-Chromosome DNA STR (short tandem repeat) tests: Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111.

*Country – This is the paternal country of origin as reported by the individual customer.

*Match Total – This is the total number of matches for a specific country.

*Country Total – This is the total number of people with Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) results from the country of origin in the Family Tree DNA Y-DNA database.

*Percentage – This is the percentage from the country of origin compared to the total number from that country in the database, i.e., the Match Total column divided by the Country Total column.

*Comment – This is additional information reported by the customer such as a social, religious, or ethnic group. Where more than one match from a country has provided the same comment, the number of matches is shown beside the comment. For example, someone with matches in Germany might have Baden-W├╝rttemberg (2) and Schleswig-Holstein (7).

Note: Family Tree DNA uses the International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 3166 for country names.
