You should be able to check and download the actual data and markers used in the analysis with your kit number on the Family Tree DNA website. If they tested Y chromosome dna, the results should show STR (short tandem repeat) numbers.katamari Damassi wrote: ↑ A few years ago I did this dna ancestry test with a company called Family Tree, and the results cast doubt on my parentage because it said I did not share any genes with the country I knew my grandfather came from. With both parents dead I couldn't ask them any questions. For Christmas, my husband got me a 23and Me test. These test results dispute the previous test and aligns more with what I expected a dna ancestry test would find. My only theory is that the Family Tree test(which was only supposed to test the y chromosome) instead tested my mitochondrial dna.
Either way, uniparental markers only represent a tiny part of a person's lineage and don't say much about recent individual ancestry. There isn't necessarily anything suspicious about having a "typical" autosomal DNA profile for a particular population combined with an unexpected Y chromosome or mtDNA haplotype.
