Here is another chart from the living descendant's perspective looking
back at his/her Pedigree Chart which I enhanced a bit from the original
chart found on's webpage for a presentation on Genetic
Genealogy I gave several years ago. It shows where we get our various
types of DNA, i.e., Y-DNA, mtDNA, and atDNA.

For more details and a basic explanation, for beginners to Genetic
Genealogy, of the different types of DNA in our cells, see my
introductory report:
