FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS

RESOLVE YOUR QUESTIONS

Why is my paternal haplogroup geographically located in a different place than where I was born?

In our geographic assignment, we rely on known databases. These databases show in which countries a haplogroup is most frequently found. However, this does not imply that this haplogroup is only found in that region or that no other haplogroup types exist in that region. Human history has been characterized by large migrations, which means that a haplogroup can be found almost anywhere in the world. At tellmeGen we provide information about in which region your haplogroup is most frequently found, which is not necessarily related to your place of origin.
