My Personal Relatives Finder

 

Like most people who are into family research I’m always interested in finding new relatives and to get in touch with distant cousins. To make this easier I had my DNA tested on 23andme and on Ancestry DNA and also uploaded it to GEDmatch (Kit # M368955) as well as FTDNA. My full family tree is available on MyHeritage, please ask for access.

My paternal haplogroup is J2b2* (23andme), J-M172 (FTDNA)
My maternal haplogroup is H1 (23andme)
