    How Accurate Are The Haplogroups On WeGene

    I have done all my family testing on Ancestry, which technically doesn't give you your haplogroup, but now they are on the newer chip, I noticed WeGene gives you those.

    I just wondered how accurate they are?

    My paternal haplogroup is showing as: R1b1a1a2a1a1c2a1

    My maternal haplogroup is showing as: K1a1b

    They got my haplogroup correct with my 23andme data (J1c2), but just gave me and my mum J with our Ancestry data.

    Gave my dad mtdna J1c1 and ydna R1b1a1a2a1a, but not entirely sure how accurate that is.
    Known ancestry: English (mostly S/SE England) + Irish (Cork)

    Hi Laura, its strange as its giving you a Paternal Haplogroup as women do not have this Chromosome, only your Dad or your Brother would have this?

    I want to know where on the website people are finding the Haplogroups.

    I received no such result.

    Yup, I uploaded both my mum's and dad's results onto WeGene.

    Hi again Laura, What I can say about Wegene, is that I got my test done on 23andme, and Wegene give exactly the same result as I got with 23andme, I am waiting to hear what the result actually is on "LivingDNA", I beleive this will give me a double check on the 23andme result, and I am hoping a much higher resolution.

    23andMe gave me:

    Y = L2*. Turned out this is a very out of date nomenclature, that should align to 2016 L1b. Indeed I could see from their Haplogroup mutation mapper tool that I was indeed positive for L-M317 (L1b)
    mt = H6a1

    FTDNA gave me:

    Y = L-M22 (L1), eventually extended through Big Y testing to it's current L-SK1414 (L1b2c).
    mt = waiting Full sequence mt results now.

    James Lick mthap analyser gives me:

    mt = H6a1a8

    WeGene gives me:

    Y = L1, but nothing downstream of that. However, it is correct.
    mt = H6a1a8

    Wegene gives me T1 for my Ydna ............they are unsure if I am T1a or T1b

    They correctly found my mtdna as H95a


    23andme gives me F for my ydna group .............they cannot even find K , let alone my T

    and give me just H for my mtdna

    Clearly 23andme are far far away from any semblance of accuracy and as far as I am concerned the worst in finding anything accurate in regards to ydna and mtdna.
    23andme are as useful as ........an ashtray on a motorbike


    My Path = ( K-M9+, LT-P326+, T-M184+, L490+, M70+, PF5664+, L131+, L446+, CTS933+, CTS3767+, CTS8862+, Z19945+, BY143483+ )


    Grandfather via paternal grandmother = I1-CTS6397 yDna
    Great grandmother paternal side = T1a1e mtDna
    Son's mtDna = K1a4p
