Ancestry DNA doesn't include information about male or female line haplogroups. Most autosomal testing companies don't. I understand that 23andMe provides a very basic low-level haplogroup but FamilyTreeDNA and Ancestry do not.

The value in autosomal testing lies in matching your existing tree with those of distant cousins. The results are most useful in supplementing or confirming data you already have or augmenting already existing conclusions. The test will NOT provide you with a family tree. If you don't already have a well documented family tree with at least some branches back 6+ generations, genealogy DNA testing will be of limited value.
