This page will help you find other kits that match your DNA. There are three tools: Lookup, Compare and Matches. If you have any questions on terminology, please check out our resource page with links to DNA help pages, instructions and bloggers.
If someone shares their kit ID information, then you can Lookup their kit to see their earliest known ancestor and all the other information found on their kit page. For mtDNA, you can view the hypervariable regions but not the Coding Regions because of privacy.
Note: If no kit appears in this table it is because there are NO matches or that kit is not the type of kit you are trying to compare. The following table describes each of the columns in the result:
|The Kit number
|The surname of the Earliest Known Ancestor from their pedigree chart.
|The birthplace of the Earliest Known Ancestor from their pedigree chart.
|Haplogroup, as it is entered by the Kit owner.
Control regions called hypervariable region #1
HVR1 runs from nucleotide 16001 to nucleotide 16569.
Control regions called hypervariable region #2
HVR2 runs from nucleotide 00001 to nucleotide 00574.
The coding region runs from nucleotide 00575 to nucleotide 16000.
Find DNA matches with others who have uploaded their results to mitoYDNA.org.
Fill in one side or the other, then click on the Match button at the bottom of that section.
The following are the items that must be filled in to find matches to an Y-DNA kit.
The following is the Results page of the matches (with some of the information covered for privacy).
The first line is your kit ID. All subsequent lines are the kit(s) of your matches.
The yellow highlighting shows the differences between the selected kits.
For differences on multi-value markers, the different element is bold.
If it is clear, they are exact match for that allele.
If you click on the Kit ID, this will take you to the kit page for more information about that match (including contact information).
The following are the items that must be filled in to find matches to an mtDNA kit:
|Hyper Variable Region 1 (16024-16569)
|Hyper Variable Region 2 (00001-00576)
|Coding Region (00577-16023)
Once all the information is entered, the following screen appears comparing your mtNA with the other kit you entered. Click on the Kit ID and it will take you to their kit page to get more information about that match (including contact information).
