Ancestry.com DNA offers a Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroup predictor – the Ancient Ancestry Finder – based primarily on location of your most distant known paternal or maternal ancestor. From the site:
To give everyone a sampling of these results, with Finder™ we’ve built a simple experience that takes a best guess at describing your ancient ancestors. You answer 2 or 3 questions with the most basic info about your family (facts almost everyone knows). And then we provide a few options for likely ancient ancestral groups, along with descriptions of those groups…The spirit of Finder™ is a bit different from what you may have experienced on our site. It’s part of our effort to introduce ancestry and genealogy to a wider audience.
The results aren’t meant to be accurate, merely a best guess based on location. The guess is the broadest category of the haplogroup, such as “Y-DNA Haplogroup R” or “mtDNA Haplogroup H.” Both of my predictions were accurate. I’m curious to see what the percentage of accuracy is for others, so leave a comment to let me know.
