Family Genealogy

I thought it would be interesting to have my DNA analyzed for genetic purposes. I had it tested for my father's side using the Y-Chromosome test. It was determined that I belong to the haplogroup R1b. The R1b group is the largest haplogroup in Europe. All my male and female ancestors on my paternal side come from Norway. I was able to determine that the haplogroup R1b makes up about 30% of the total Norwegian population. The picture shows some of the information sent to me concerning my haplogroup. The chart at the bottom shows my hyplotype. If another person was tested using the same locations and their values were very similar to mine we would have a common ancestor. The more values that are identical the more recent would be that ancestor.
