AncestryDNA is a DNA testing service that utilises autosomal testing technology to discover your family history. This service combines DNA science with the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.
It maps ethnicity going back multiple generations and provides insight into questions like: What region of Europe are my ancestors from? Am I likely to have East Asian heritage?
AncestryDNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches.
With 5x more ancestral regions than the next leading test, AncestryDNA provides richer connections to people, places, and migration stories:
- Order your complete kit with easy-to-follow instructions
- Return a small saliva sample in the prepaid envelope
- Your DNA will be analyzed at more than genetic markers
- Within 6-8 weeks, expect an email with a link to your online results.
I've looking at either AncestryDNA or 23andme.com, but the former's Black Friday price has kicked in today - at the time of writing, 23andme.com is still £79. There's a pretty good review of these services here:
Note £20 delivery fee.
Also, 23andme.com have reduced their DNA ancestry service to £59. They have a £20 delivery fee too, unless you'd visited them previously and became eligible for free delivery (as I fortunately did).
