Presentation: Learn about haplogroups, available via the FamilyTreeDNA Family Finder tests, with Donna Rutherford, 17 July


21 June 2024
Join us for the July Family Tree DNA Club webinar, at which Donna Rutherford will be sharing information about the haplogroups, available to those with a Family Finder test from FamilyTreeDNA

Haplogroups are usually associated with Y-DNA and mt-DNA tests – for people who have taken a Y or an mt test, to learn about their direct fatherline or motherline. Now FamilyTreeDNA are providing haplogroup information to testers who have taken a Family Finder autosomal test. Haplogroups allow us trace our deep ancestry, making connections to the more distant past and discovering more about our ancestors’ migration and origins across the millennia.
