This is the Jewish version of our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Plus, based on the atDNA 8.0 database. It examines all your ancestral lines at once, Jewish and non-Jewish, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from. In addition to Jewish population matches and marker presence, the test and ethnic panel confirm any Native American, African or Asian ancestry. You also receive your top matches from different European countries.
Sephardic? Ashkenazic? A combination? Polish? Russian? Khazar? Moroccan? This test will find all your Jewish lines, plus any admixture, such as American Indian, Romani/Gypsy and African.
Once you order, we send you a package with a collection kit and instructions by Priority Mail. You will collect a sample with a cheek swab, and return the kit via a stamped 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 the database known as atDNA 8.0 developed by population experts.
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 also get a world ancestry map and certificate of testing. Our database contains three populations explicitly defined as Jewish (Sephardim in Israel, Ashkenazi Jews in Hungary and Chuetas in Spain, a crypto-Jewish population on the Majorca Islands), plus Melungeon and other related populations.
Your megapopulation results will also tell you whether the Jewish Megapopulation is ranked high or medium or low.

Our exclusive test for Jewish roots and all the rest of your ancestry, including European countries of origin.
The Jewish DNA Fingerprint Plus 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).
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 tells 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 mean that you lack that ancestry.
