I have been told that our dna is unique in that anyone else with it has never had a dna test, so far.  Being dna deficient, I cannot understand why that would be true.  Would anyone know what the following genetic markers mean: GATAA10, GATAC4, TAGAH4, GGAAT1BO7, YCAIIa and YCA11b?  Do these markers determine, race, ethnicity, hair color?  I haven't a clue but have been told that the fact that we have all 6 of these markers in our dna is the unique part.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Audrey

Would you post your results?  The markers that you mentioned are included in a 37 marker test.
Were you given a haplogroup? Give us more info.

Hi Audrey.  The yDNA and mtDNA tests that are being conducted in genetic genealogy do not yield a unique result.  If no one matches your result, it means that the people who match you haven't been tested.

The markers you mention are a few of the many markers used by various testing companies.  There is no correlation between these markers (or any of the others used in a yDNA or mtDNA test) and race, ethnicity, hair color, etc. 

Try some of the links on our home page for more info:

If you want a good book to understand all of this, we have recommended some at our bookstore:
