    Is there a mostly up-to-date and mostly complete ancient DNA database?

    I'm new on the forum, even if I explored the subject many times on my own. I stumbled upon some databases or index files online, but I could not find something that looks somewhat complete. The best I found is obviously Havard's, but it is far from complete and missing a lot of Y-dna markers.

    So, if something better exists, I figured the place to find someone who knows about it must be on this forum...

    If not I guess, everyone makes his own and I'll continue doing the same!

    Thanks!

    As far as usable access (from a genetic genealogy point of view) and consistent analysis method, FTDNA's database is going to be hard to beat. You can find their samples under "Ancient Connections" per haplogroup you are interested in on their Discover tool.
    https://discover.familytreedna.com/

    They wouldn't be the place to access raw data from but they cite the studies they take each sample from.

    Their last blog update says they have almost 4200 ancient samples analyzed. These are all ancient men, I believe.

    Not complete, but a map with decent amount of samples (it is often updated with new samples) :

    Thank you for your answers. I guess no ressource is perfect, but maybe this will turn into a thread with many links like those which might help others too!

    I might as well add some myself:

    Of course yfull:
    https://www.yfull.com/ancient/

    From the Y-dna E haplogroup thread (by the way are there other specific maps like this?)
    https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?m...M.kHmbTTiPAdtQ

    And this one is from a particular article but the 3rd tab of that supplementary table is pretty extensive:

    I've tried it and I must say that I really like the Time Tree!

    By the way you seem pretty well informed
