Ancestry tests are most helpful to people who were adopted, raised in foster homes, or have no family history and want to know their ethnic makeup.

3. Can this test tell me where my family history is located throughout the world?

Once you complete an ethnic DNA profile test, you can then take our World Mapping Test. The world mapping will pinpoint your DNA on a global map where and tell you where your ancestral roots are located throughout the world.

4. I think I may be part European, can you tell me which part of Europe I am from?

Ancestry test results are generally available in 4-6 weeks after being shipped to the lab.
