What Is AncestryDNA?
AncestryDNA is a cutting-edge DNA testing service that utilises some of the latest autosomal testing technology to revolutionise the way you discover your family history. This service combines advanced 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 such possibilities as: what region of Europe are my ancestors from, or am I likely to have East Asian heritage? AncestryDNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches.

Your DNA kit includes full instructions, a saliva collection tube, and a prepaid return mailer (so you don’t have additional costs to return your DNA.)
