Answers to Common Questions

We currently partner with Ancestry.com who supply our DNA test kits

In order to provide a full end to end service we administer the entire process including setting up your online results and your Ancestry account (free of charge)

I am adopted, can DNA testing help me?

Genetic genealogy has enabled groups of people to trace their ancestry even though they are not able to use conventional genealogical techniques.

This may be because they do not know one or both of their birth parents or because conventional genealogical records have been lost, destroyed or never existed.


These groups include adoptees, foundlings, Holocaust survivors, GI babies, child migrants, descendants of children from orphan trains and people with slave ancestry.

Whilst we can not guarantee DNA testing will result in a positive trace it is an important and powerful tool that at the very least will provide significantly more detail about your background and in some cases is the key piece of the jigsaw that allows us to locate your family

How secure and private is DNA testing?

Your privacy is important to us.
We use industry standard security practices to store your DNA sample, your DNA test results, and other personal data you provide to us. In addition, we store your DNA test results and DNA sample without your name or other common identifying information.

At any time, you can choose to download raw DNA data, have us delete your DNA test results as described in the AncestryDNA Privacy Statement, or have us destroy your physical DNA saliva sample. We do not share with third parties your name or other common identifying information linked to your genetic data, except as legally required or with your explicit consent
