What to Do With Your Y-DNA Results

What Anyone Receiving Y-DNA Results Should Do with The Results

1. If you tested through Family Tree DNA ("FTDNA"), you should consider joining the appropriate FTDNA project or projects. Projects are available for men sharing a haplogroup, geographic or ethnic origins, or surnames.

2. If you haven't yet entered information concerning your most distant known direct male ancestor on your FTDNA profile, it would be helpful for you to enter some information (even if it’s only a surname or an ancestral town). That way, your matches will be able to find your results on FTDNA project pages.

3. You should check your FTDNA match list to see if any of your close matches share a surname or geographic origins with your known ancestors on your direct male line. If so, you should send an e-mail to those matches to see if you can determine the relationship.
