Includes DNA Test.

Our unique Melungeon sample became the first population to be added to our autosomal population computer program atDNA, which drives the DNA Fingerprint Test. Now find out how high a match you have for Melungeon ancestry. If you have already obtained your results for the DNA Fingerprint Test, there is no need to be resampled or retested. Simply order the Melungeon Match Update and we will send you your top 50 matches and exact ranking for Melungeon. If you have Melungeon ancestry Melungeon (n=40) will be at or near the top.

Check out the posts on DNA Communities to see how the 40 participants in the Melungeon DNA study scored. Many had Melungeon (n=40) as their No. 1 population match. That is outstanding validation for the original sample and the conclusions reached in the study published in 2010 in Appalachian Journal:

There has been a lot of controversy about this ethnic group, but DNA Consultants has published the only autosomal data on them and offers the only available DNA test matches.  If you have already taken a DNA Fingerprint Test but missed out on potential matching with Melungeon data (introduced in 2011), you may take the Melungeon Match Update ($50).
