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
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.
You own your DNA data. 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
Our DNA service is a cutting edge DNA testing service that utilises some of the latest autosomal testing technology to revolutionise the way you discover your family history.
This service combines advanced DNA science with the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.
It maps ethnicity going back multiple generations and provides insight into such possibilities as: what region of Europe are my ancestors from, or am I likely to have East Asian heritage? DNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches
DNA testing is a simple saliva test you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Once you order, you will receive the Ancestry DNA kit in the mail in a matter of days.
Your Ancestry DNA kit includes full instructions, a saliva collection tube, and a pre-paid return mailer (so you don't have additional costs to return your DNA.)
After returning your sample by just dropping it in the mail, your DNA is processed at the lab. You then receive an email notifying you that your results are ready to explore on the Ancestry DNA website.
Your AncestryDNA results include information about your ethnicity across 150 regions and identifies potential relatives through DNA matching to others who have taken the AncestryDNA test.
Your results are a great starting point for more family history research, and it can also be a way to dig even deeper into the research you’ve already done
The AncestryDNA test uses microarray-based autosomal DNA testing, which surveys a person’s entire genome at over 700,000 locations, all with a simple saliva sample. Additionally, the new online interface integrates state-of-the-art tools for you to utilise your DNA results for family history research
Your AncestryDNA test results will normally take about 6-8 weeks to process from the time that the lab receives your DNA sample
