WE GET THE PROCESS ROLLING FOR YOU:
Once you order a DNA test with a Legal Premium, one of our staff contacts you within 24 hours within business hours and sets up a DNA-collection appointment at an approved facility near you, such as a hospital or medical office.
GO TO YOUR DNA-COLLECTION APPOINTMENT:
All testing materials for your case are sent directly from DNA Consultants to the approved facility. Bring a form of photo ID. A DNA collector supervises cheek swabbing, handles all required paperwork and submits your samples to the lab. You pay nothing extra. Easy!
GETTING YOUR RESULTS:
After we receive your lab results, your report will be completed and a hard copy mailed to the address you provided within 21 days. There is no charge for the hard copy. We will email you when your report is mailed. For security reasons, no electronic version of the report will be provided.
Order the Legal Premium version if you need results for legal or administrative reasons. We will verify your ID, witness DNA collection by an approved and impartial party and certify a strict chain-of-custody process. Among its potential uses are:
This is the legal Native American version of our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Test. It examines all your ancestral lines at once, Native and non-Native, including European, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from. The Native American tribes and population matches, markers and metapopulation frequency index confirm, within the limitations of our data:
The test and ethnic panel also detail any European, Middle Eastern, Jewish, African or Asian ancestry. You receive your top matches to different European countries as well.
Once you order, we contact you and make arrangements at a nearby clinic for a third party to collect a sample with a cheek swab. The collector sends your sample overnight to our lab, where it is analyzed against standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for 15 of these genetic systems are compared with the database known as atDNA 10.4 developed by our population experts. We mail you your report and certificate in hard copy.
Total turn-around time: about three weeks.
Our database contains more than 60 North and South American indigenous populations explicitly defined as Native American, some labeled with tribal names, some not, plus Melungeon, Hispanic and other related populations. The populations U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n=62) and (n=92) were added in 2014 and 2017, and U.S. Cherokee Enrolled (n=33) in 2018, respectively, and are available nowhere else. U.S. Shawnee Enrolled (n=24) and U.S. Shawnee Admixed (n=53) were added in July 2022.

Native American legal version of our most popular test, it gives you all your ancestry and highlights the Native American. Use when a judge has ordered a chain of custody test.
In the marker section, your report tells you if you have a Native American marker from one parent, from both, or from neither. It is not possible to say which parent you get a marker from if you only receive one marker but if you receive two that means ancestry on both mother’s and father’s side. Read about autosomal markers.

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 of prehistoric movements of ethnic groups. Two of the markers are Native American.
Disclaimer: This ancestry test is primarily for private knowledge. It is a forensic DNA test based in part on tribal American Indian data published in J. Ng et al, “Native American Population Data Based on the Globalfiler® Autosomal STR loci,” Forensic Science International: Genetics 24:e12-e13. While it is a chain-of custody test, it does not provide evidence accepted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to claim membership. Your Native American ancestors may be very far removed generationally or their genes may be too weak to register statistically. Your results may or may not confirm expected ethnic composition, family history or tribal connections. Alone, no DNA ancestry test may be used to prove identity, biological relationships, nationality, citizenship, immigration or tribal enrollment. Still, the Legal Premium version can be used as a legal document with other evidence and testimony.
