Y-DNA 12 – Male Test
Your matches and ancestral origins largely depend on how your DNA compares to the FTDNA database, which is the largest DNA database in the world, so you have the greatest chance of finding close relatives by testing with them. However, if your paternal line is rare, it is possible you will not have matches or ancestral origins information right away. The FTDNA database is constantly growing, so you may have matches over time, and they will send you e-mail notifications about any new matches.
