A DNA Test to determine your ancestry



The ancestral origins DNA test can reconstruct a part of the genetic history of the tested person. It will inform the participant about the geographic location of his or her ancestors. The report is very accurate and contains all of the major ethnic groups including First Nations or Native Americans. Your genetic population matches will be displayed on a world map. The darker regions corresponds to stronger matches. See this image for an example.
