Gedmatch – Quick Tip

Exploring our DNA matches is so much fun. A quick tip when looking at your one-to-many matches at Gedmatch change the selection to the X on the page and see who is matching you on your X Chromosome.

The X has a different inheritance pattern if you are a man you received your X solely from your mother. A female will receive 2, one from her father and one from her mother. It is a different way to explore your matches!
