About us

Following Y-DNA testing, FTDNA provides two kinds of test results, individual and public.

Individual

Following log on (using your kit number as username and your password), ‘myFTDNA Home’ page comes up. This page has a collection of buttons,the most useful of which are:

  • Y-DNA ‘Matches’, ‘Haplotree & SNPs’, ‘Y-STR Results’
  • Big Y ‘Block Tree’, ‘Matches’, ‘Results’ (for those who have taken Big Y tests)
  • Your Account, ’Manage Personal Information’

·        Account Information

·        Genealogy

·        Project Preferences

·        Privacy & Sharing

·        Notification Preferences

·            Order History

·            (Other)Projects (we suggest your surname, DF21, DF13, L21, P312. There is no cost for joining multiple projects)

Public

The public web pages are accessible to everyone and can be found by searching for ‘McMahon project dna results’. This brings up ‘About Us’ (which you are reading), ‘DNA Results’, ‘Surnames’ and ‘Activity Feed’. Of most interest are the ‘DNA Results’ which consist of:

  • Classic Chart, including subgroup, kit, ancestor name, and haplogroup (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mcmahon?iframe=yresults)
  • Colorized Chart, including subgroup, kit, ancestor name, and haplogroup (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mcmahon?iframe=ycolorized)
  • Map (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mcmahon?iframe=ymap)
  • SNPs, including kit, ancestor name, and haplogroup (https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mcmahon?iframe=ysnp)
