Ancestry file Help

This page has instructions for getting the files you need to load your Y-DNA or Mitochondrial DNA into the mitoYDNA data base from AncestryDNA.   For both DNA types, login to your Ancestry account. Click on the "DNA" tab. Click on the "Y-DNA and mtDNA Tests" link.

Manual Entry

We strongly urge you to use the CSV file to load your Ancestry results.   But if you no longer subscribe or have deleted your account and ONLY have the PDF file (or paper) list of your STR alelle values (see below), you can manually enter your results.   Don't select a file on 'Choose File' when creating a kit and you will be taken to the Manual Entry screen to enter each DYS number.
