Jewish Upgrade

Jewish DNA Fingerprint Test Plus 18 Marker Ethnic Panel (UPGRADE)**

(DNA profile from previous testing required prior to purchase.)

This is the Jewish version of our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Test, based on the atDNA 10.1 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 twenty matches from different European countries.

On the basis of your existing test results from the simple product, your sample is analyzed against standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for 15 of these genetic systems are compared with database known as atDNA 10.1 developed by population experts.

Our database contains four populations explicitly defined as Jewish (Israeli Jewish, Sephardim in Israel, Ashkenazi Jews in Hungary and Chueta in Spain), plus Melungeon, Ukrainian and other related populations. It takes about three to four weeks from start to finish. Your beautiful map and certificate is delivered by email as a pdf file, unless you also choose to purchase a high-quality color print out to be mailed to you.

The 18 Marker Ethnic Panel checks your lab report for 18 distinctive numerical values scattered through your genetic material. Four of them are Jewish-linked. 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 and subsequent diasporas 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.
