Science behind the test
Years of scientific research and anthropological studies have made this test possible. Your ancestors have left specific genetic markers on your DNA. These genetic markers are unique to your ancestral clan and have been passed down for many centuries and inherited by you, here in the present day. Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Testing is unique in that is gives clients the chance to connect to various studies of populations around the world. The test works by comparing your DNA profile to our vast database of genetic information for thousands of populations as well as 14 anthropological regions. We run your DNA profile through this database, looking for matches between your DNA and that of the populations stored in our database. A match indicates between any one of these populations and your DNA indicates that these are your ancient relatives. Each of these ancestral populations is directly linked to the region from which they originated and thus, we can connect you to your ancestral home land by knowing the studied populations to which you belong. This test will help you learn a lot about origins you never would have even imagined you had. For example, your population matches could indicate Irish, Turkish or Romanian descent.
Our sample collection kit will enable you to collect a sample of your DNA which we can then test in the lab. Your DNA can be collected with the sterile swabs you find inside our kit. A simple, quick, thirty second rub inside your mouth using the swab is all that is needed to collect the DNA sample the laboratory needs to verify your origins. Besides providing you with the mouth swabs, you will also receive instructions and consent forms. Once you have collected your samples and filled in the forms, you send everything back to use using the pre-addressed envelope inside your kit (Please note the pre-addressed envelope does not include postage and we recommend Recorded or Special Delivery).
