The DNA Fingerprint Test™Our exclusive DNA Fingerprint Test examines all your ancestral lines at once, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from. The test confirms any Native American, African or Asian ancestry; if you are primarily European, you will also receive your top twenty matches from different European countries (or parts of countries). Your DNA Fingerprint can also help explain the origin of physical traits that you or your relatives may possess. Unlike other autosomal tests, the DNA Fingerprint Test computes the likelihood of its matches on the basis of contemporary populations, not ancient world migrations or evolutionary theory.
Sample DNA Fingerprint Report
We will send you a package with a collection kit and instructions. You will collect a sample with a cheek swab, and return the kit via a prepaid business reply envelope. Your sample will be analyzed against 16 standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for 15 of these genetic systems are compared with our company database known as atDNA 6.0, developed by population experts. In addition to your leading matches to world populations where you have ancestry, you receive your top European populations and megapopulations as well.
Then, our genealogy experts take your DNA results and evaluate the relative strength and weakness of your matches to arrive at an overall picture of your primary ancestries. You will also receive a world ancestry map and certificate of testing. It takes about four to eight weeks for analysis of the sample and preparation of your report.
The DNA Fingerprint Test can be taken by anyone, regardless of gender. This is ideal for women, who cannot otherwise test their father's line without a brother or other male to take the sex-related Y chromosome test. It is not confined to just your two "outside" male-male or female-female lines (which many believe make this autosomal test more practical and accurate). This also makes the DNA Fingerprint Test ideal for situations where relatives are deceased or unknown (as in adoptive families).

You can add the 18 Marker Ethnic Panel to your DNA Fingerprint, making it a DNA Fingerprint Plus. This add-on analysis checks your lab report for 18 distinctive numerical values scattered through your genetic material. These markers were discovered by DNA Consultants. They have been linked to early human migrations branching out of Africa into Asia, Native America and Europe. Your report will tell you if you have the marker from one parent, from both, or from neither. Read more about the 18 Marker Ethnic Panel or DNA Plus.

Add DNA Archiving Pack if you would like to preserve a sample of your DNA for emergencies or future testing.
