    X SNP's?

    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.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

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