  • DNA Testing: Choosing a test

    Genetic genealogy is a hot topic, but many people are put off by the learning curve. This is a place to get answers to your questions. MH/Geni DNA Tests This project is sponsored by Geni's curators to provide help in choosing a DNA test and understanding what questions the different types of tests might answer. How to participate If you want to see the discussions from thi...

  • Y-DNA haplogroups

    Y-DNA haplogroups are groups that share a common ancestor having the same single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation. Unlike mtDNA , which is passed down the matrilineal line, Y-DNA is passed solely along the patrilineal line, from father to son. Y-DNA can provide insight into both recent genetic ancestry via short tandem repeats (STRs) and ancient human migratory patterns via SNPs. Haplog...

  • mtDNA Haplogroups

    This is a master project, to collect information about the specific mtDNA haplogroup projects on Geni. All modern humans descend in the female line from a particular woman, nicknamed "Mitochondrial Eve," who lived about 150,000 years ago. Each of us has inherited her mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), along with the mutations that have accumulated in our individual family lines. Mitochondrial DNA (...

  • R-U106 (Y-DNA)

    This project is for people who have tested and been assigned the paternal haplogroup R-U106 (Y-DNA) and also for people who are believed to have been this paternal haplogroup based on tests done on descendants. The current naming convention is to use the terminal SNP, so R1b, U106* Also known as R1b1b2a1a (S21+), previously known as R1b1b2a From The R1b1b2a1 (S21+) is a prominent R1b subcla...
