Our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Plus examines all your ancestral lines at once, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from.
In addition to your populations matches, the DNA Fingerprint Plus also tells you if your profile contains any of 18 ethnic markers. The test and ethnic panel confirm any Native American, African, Jewish, European or Asian ancestry; if you are primarily or even part European, you will also receive your top matches in our exclusive new EURO analysis, together with your Megapopulations.
We will send you a package with a collection kit. First Class Mail is the default shipping method and is free. You will collect a sample with a cheek swab, and return the kit via the free Business Reply envelope enclosed. Your sample will be analyzed against 15 standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers or individual DNA profile.
Your values for these genetic systems are compared with our company database. Known as atDNA 10.3, this unique and comprehensive collection of all the world’s populations has been developed by population experts since 1995. The current state of the database reflects over 500 published studies containing over 189,000 profiles from all over the world.
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 three weeks after we receive your lab results for analysis. Your report will be uploaded to your online account and can be downloaded and printed.

Our best-selling autosomal test analyzes your entire ancestry with matches to populations around the world, plus running an 18 Marker Ethnic Panel.
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 Plus ideal for situations where relatives are deceased or unknown (as in adoptive families).

The 18 Marker Ethnic Panel 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 as shown on our map.
Your report will tell you if you have the marker from one parent, from both, or from neither. It is not possible to say which parent you get a marker from–that is up to you to decide! And the fact that you do not have a marker does not necessarily mean that you lack that ancestry. A sibling may have gotten the marker if you failed to do so.
