A Different X-DNA Inheritance Chart (by John Motzi)

John Motzi has developed an Excel X-DNA Inheritance Chart that includes only the ancestors who may have contributed to the X chromosome of a person. I have made this chart available on my website with John's permission.

The Excel file can be accessed directly at http://debbiewayne.com/presentations/dna/MotziJohn_Xinheritance_Ancestry_Chart.xlsx. There is also a link available from my QuickRef Links section at http://debbiewayne.com/pubs.php#quickref once you scroll down to the section with links to "Charts for X-DNA analysis by others." You can find John's email address there also if you wish to contact him about the chart.

Because the names of ancestors who could not have contributed to the X chromosome are eliminated, this may make more sense to some of us and make it easier to find common ancestors on the X lines. While my versions of the charts make sense to me, some of you may prefer John's version of the charts or the ones created by others that are also linked in my Quickref section.

All of us think a little differently and the same tool is not best for all. Try this out and see if it works better for you.
