Uploading your markers to Ancestry

If you were tested by a lab other than Ancestry, you can upload your markers to Ancestry. Doing this will broaden the pool of Y-DNA markers that are available for comparison with your markers. Follow these steps.

  • Go to and click the DNA button.
  • If you have an account with Ancestry, log in. If not, create a free account.
  • Click the Paternal (Y-chromosome) button.
  • Click the name of the lab that tested you and click Continue
  • Manually enter your haplogroup and your marker values. Ancestry will automatically convert certain values for compatibility with its database. Click Submit when you have finished entering the values.
