A genetic profile is created by measuring scientifically established points in a
Y-Chromosome test. This type of genetic profile is known as a Haplotype. The numbers
that makeup the haplotype consist of values measured at specific locations along
the chromosomal DNA. The numeric value is always unique to your DNA, and the combination
of the different values makes up the unique numbers of your haplotype.
Comparing haplotypes is a way to find genetic cousins. It does not uniquely identify
you as an individual, but the genetic location markers can confirm the existence
of a common male ancestor between two individuals. MRCA stands for Most Recent Common
Ancestor and gives you an idea of how many generations in the past you shared an
ancestor. MRCA calculations are based on the number of markers tested, the number
of matching values, and the mutation rate of the markers.
The following genetic profile is that of the grandson of
Thomas George Leslie Molineux, born in 1946 to Thomas's eldest son.
