Hi folks.
I was just looking at the page where you compare the testing companies, and i noticed how there were a rubric called "X-DNA Snp's".
What is this X-DNA and what can it tell us? Is it useful in terms of mtDNA or autosomal? Or maybe a third possibility?

It is considered autosomal, because it can come from male and female part of ancestry.

Oh okay. Thanks. So mtDNA is basically just some non-sex-chromosome which we always get from our mother?
