This presentation will explore Y-DNA testing, Haplogroups connections, and current tests available.

What You Will Learn

Y-DNA testing has been around for a while now, and significant advances continue to keep us on our toes. In this presentation we are going to take a look at the changes in the types of Y-DNA testing over the years and what the trend is currently. We will also examine the connection with Haplogroups and how Surname Projects can aid in our research in finding the male lines.
