+5 votes


I'm very new to this and I need help in learning where to start.  My father was born 6/23/1924.  He was adopted when he was 6-8 years old, by a farm couple who thought they could not have children.  I have been tested by 23andMe and have been given several matches.  Please give me and idea of where to start, if there is a place to start.

Pat M.  I have listed myself as Pat X because I have no idea of what name to use.  His adopted name was Determan.

Has the organization that did the testing, indicated your Haplogroup for the Y-DNA paternal line or the Haplogroup for the mtDNA or maternal line?
