Another way to explore your myOrigins results— the Chromosome Painter uses colors representing the populations in your myOrigins results to paint segments of your genome.

This exciting tool goes beyond telling you your percentages by revealing where each DNA segment in your ancestry comes from.

Family Finder includes:

  • myOrigins – mapping tool that provides a detailed ethnic and geographic breakdown of where your ancestors came from

  • ancientOrigins – tool that maps your ancient ancestors’ migration routes and shows the amount of autosomal DNA you still carry from ancient European civilizations.

  • Family Matching – enhanced feature that enables users to sort confirmed DNA matches by maternal and paternal lines

  • Chromosome Browser – exclusive tool for comparing matching segments of DNA (blocks) with your genetic matches

Y-DNA is what we call the sex chromosome “Y” that is passed from a father to his sons only, women do not receive a Y chromosome. Testing the Y chromosome allows for investigation into a male's paternal family line and can help identify surname lines, living relatives whose Y chromosome is similar to yours, and ancient migration routes your paternal ancestors may have taken.

Family Finder allows you to sort/filter your matches list by most recent matches. If you receive an email notifying you of a new Family Finder match, go to your matches list in your dashboard and click the heading Match Date. This will reorganize your matches to list most recent matches first.

If you are trying to use the Family Matching system and populate your Maternal/Paternal matches:

  • Please note that you must have matches "linked" to your family tree who have taken our Family Finder DNA test

  • Family members you can "link" that will activate your Maternal/Paternal lists include: Parents; Grandparents; Great Grandparents; 1st, 2nd, 3rd Cousins; Aunt/Uncle; Great Aunt/Uncle; Half-Siblings

Your myOrigins results within Family Finder will reflect a personal ethnic and geographic breakdown of your ancestral origins worldwide, connecting you to regional origins from our 90+ Population Clusters.

People sometimes feel their results are not accurate because they do not see a specific country or population reported. Please keep in mind that myOrigins uses regional percentages (not nationality/specific countries), as DNA mutates regionally rather than across man-made borders. It is also common for some individuals not to see certain reference populations, as they may not have received enough genetic "markers" for that particular population throughout the generations.
