Ancestry DNA Testing
Ancestry DNA Tests are more cutting-edge than any other offered. They are produced with easy to understand reports, phone support (like all our tests), and can even be ordered as gifts. In order to carry out these tests, DNA Consultants have been contracted. Specimen collection is very similar to the at-home paternity tests. Our ancestry testing is some of the most advanced available in the industry. With a single test, we can trace your entire ancestry, not just an individual line.The paternal lineage test is based on the fact that the Y chromosome is passed down from father to child relatively unchanged through several generations. Special sections on the Y chromosome, called short tandem repeats (STRs), are examined to determine a person’s Y haplogroup—revealing the geographic origins of his ancestors as evidenced by common DNA markers. To see a list of possible paternal haplogroups, and their descriptions, visit Y-STR haplogroups.

*** Upon receipt of samples, the lab will have the return within 4-6 weeks.
The DNA Fingerprint Test™
To provide a test that will give you the answers to what countries and ethnic groups your ancestry originates from, we designed the DNA Fingerprint Test; our top-selling, exclusive test. This test proves any Native American, African or Asian ancestry you may have; European ancestry is split into the top ten most likely matches of European countries. Physical traits prevalent among you and your relatives may also be explained through your DNA Fingerprint. Some autosomal tests found their matches on the historic migrations and theoretical evolution, but the DNA Fingerprint Test calculates the probabilities through modern day populations.
Your collection kit and instructions are shipped directly to you. Your specimen will be taken with a cheek swab and returned in a prepaid envelope. Very similar to the paternity test, the CODIS markers of 16 loci are used. 15 of these are checked against databases created by population experts like Omnivore 360 and ENFSI.
By evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your test results, our genealogy experts provide a large view of your first ancestors. Along with your results and a certificate of testing, a world ancestry map is provided. Testing of the specimen provided and a breakdown of the results takes about two weeks. After one year has passed, we will send you a free update.
Anyone is eligible to take the DNA Fingerprint Test notwithstanding gender. Unlike the sex-related Y chromosome test, this test is perfect for women who do not have access to a male relative to provide the necessary DNA. Also, it is not restricted to just the homogenous lines of your male-male or female-female ancestors (making this test, for many, a more precise and practical test). For people who cannot provide any DNA from immediate relatives the DNA Fingerprint Test is ideal; for adopted children or orphans.
18 Marker Ethnic Panel.
There are 18 specific markers in your DNA that our lab will analyze called the 18 Marker Ethnic Panel. DNA Consultants discovered these markers. Early human migrations from Africa, Asia, Native America and Europe have been associated with these markers. In your report you can read whether you have the marker from both parents, one parent, or neither.
