Science behind the test
The GPS Origins algorithm was developed at the University of Sheffield in 2016, led by the research team of Dr. Eran Elhaik. Dr. Elhaik, a population geneticist. Most recently, the journal Nature published a peer-reviewed paper describing the science behind the algorithm on April 29th, 2014.

GPS origins results: When a grandparent originated from 2 countries
The test works best for individuals that have each parent originating from a single country and father and/or mother are not of mixed origin. If any of your parents originated from 2 countries (meaning that they had one parent from one country and another parent from another country), the GPS Origins™ test will take a midway point for their ancestral migration path. This means that if, for example, your father is half Greek and half English the test would trace the middle migration path which in this particular example would be Hungary.
Are you adopted?
Sometimes adopted kids know very little about their true origins. They may in fact have no idea of where exactly their birth parents originated from and where their roots actually lie. In such cases, the GPS Origins™ can give you some of the answers you are looking for by helping you get a fair idea of where your geo-genetic origins lie
