What actually happens is that you send in your pedigree chart and your DNA sample. Your DNA is tested. They add the results into their databases for Y DNA and for mtDNA. Then you can search by surname and by modal haplotypes for each of the haplogroups until you find a result that has a pedigree with the names of your non-living ancestors. This will be your test or the test of a close relative. That will give you your haplotype and you can then determine your probable haplogroup. Once enough persons from your surname are tested, and the connections are made with the pedigree charts, then you have the information on your genetic ancestry.
If you have the money, and want faster results, go with one of the commercial testing companies. Contact me directly for pricing information. In that case someone has to run the study and collect the pedigrees.
