Begin discovering your roots
With this simple DNA Ancestry Test your DNA profile is compared against hundreds of global populations and fourteen anthropological regions whose collective genetic information is known and scientifically validated. We then measure the likelihood that your genetic information is linked with each of those populations and regions, and plot the results on a very high resolution map which illustrates your unique geogenetic heritage from both a per-population view, and an overall regional view. DNA genealogy has never been so easy to understand!
Ancestry testing is a means of helping you discover your family history. For those with an interest in genealogy, tracing lineage and family history can be done via an ancestry test. The ancestry test we offer provides a general over view of your genetic roots which are etched in your DNA. Genealogy studies for links with specific people and to help you build your family tree might involve additional research into national archives and the involvement of a genealogist.

What will my genetic ancestry map show me?
Your ancestry is in your DNA
Each Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map is broken into three major sections: Population Matches, Native Region Matches, and Strength Indicators.
We measure your DNA individually against every population in our database, and mark how strongly your profile matched against each. On the population match map, each population has a shape which tells you which anthropological region that population belongs to, as well as a color to indicate how strong of a match you had with it. Green is the best match, yellow is a good match, and red means that no match or a weak match was made. In this set of calculations, we also indicate three special anthropological regions, which are actually groups of dispersed populations. A dispersed population is one that has migrated from a native land to somewhere else on the globe.
Native Region Matches
Running a completely new set of calculations, and not using any of our “dispersed population” regions, we determine which anthropological native regions you have the strongest links with. The strongest match is indicated in green, any subsequent matches are indicated in yellow. While the population match map contains data concerning recent migrations to North America, the Native Region map does not, and can be considered more of a “Deep Roots” match.
The first strength indicator graph looks at the cumulative strength of all the populations in your matched regions, and shows you how strong each region is in comparison with each other. This way, you not only know how strong individual populations are with the population match map, but can look at the larger picture, and know how each represented region measures up with any other regions you may have matched. A second strength indicator looks at your native region matches (in the smaller map) and simply shows you how each native region compares in strength with any other native regions you may have matched.
Ancestral origins upgrade: take your test a step further
For just an additional $50 you can find out even more about your ancestry. If you opt for this upgrade, you will have a pie graph certificate and a report which will elaborate your ancestral roots even further, with a genetic breakdown by percent. The list of population databases will indicate the closest matches to your unique DNA profile within each region. Click below to see the added report and pie chart.
Quality, size and personalization
Each Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Map is printed using a photographic-quality five-dye printing process on glossy photographic paper and is 17 x 10.6 inch in size. These images come out rich and beautiful and are suitable for framing and displaying with pride in your home. Because every map is custom made, your map will have “Exclusively prepared for” followed by your name printed on it.
DNA genealogy using the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Test benefits greatly from the experience and position of one of the worlds top human identity DNA testing laboratories. We’ve compiled data from scientific publications such as Forensic Science International and The Journal of Forensic Sciences; from organizations such as the Yale School of Medicine; and from our own population databases into what is now called “FoGG DB™”: the Focused GeoGenetic Database. We’ve also developed an analysis suite called FoggPopper™ which uses a human DNA profile to pull relevant data out of FoGG DB™ and then perform various calculations and follow certain algorithms to arrive at a result which reveals a person’s strongest DNA ancestry. The data from this DNA ancestry test is then compiled into the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Map, personalized for each customer
We offer a professional telephone interpretation once you receive your Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map and report. Consultation sessions are up to 15 minutes in length and are provided by telephone only. If ordered at the same time as submitting your samples for testing, the advanced purchase price per consultation session is $100. This service can be purchased after you receive your map for $110 per session. Consultation sessions may not be recorded or reproduced without the expressed written consent of EasyDNA.
Other tests: GPS Origins™
GPS Origins™ is our most advanced ancestry testing service. This test is able to pinpoint the origins of your ancestors to the finest degree. It can help you discover what countries, cities or islands your ancestors came from through a new ancestry tracking tool known as the Geographic Population Structure (GPS).
