Paternal atDNA (Autosomal)

It’s been about a year since I tested my Father’s autosomal DNA (test carried out in 2016) with the hope of furthering my genealogical research with the aid of science. It has wielded results that are far better than I ever expected. In only one year I have identified 34 DNA matches via both Ancestry.com and gedmatch. These 34 matches equate to shared DNA with 106 ANCESTORS.

 

Autosomal DNA is a term used in genetic genealogy to describe DNA which is inherited from the autosomal chromosomes. An autosome is any of the numbered chromosomes, as opposed to the sex chromosomes. Humans have 22 pairs of autosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes (the X chromosome and the Y chromosome). Autosomes are numbered roughly in relation to their sizes. That is, Chromosome 1 has approximately 2,800 genes, while chromosome 22 has approximately 750 genes. There is no established abbreviation for autosomal DNA: atDNA (more common) and auDNA are used.
