Living DNA Ancestry Test
Only £99 with results in 10-12 weeks
The Living DNA Ancestry Test will tell you your DNA breakdown across 80 world regions, including 21 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. You can also read validated research articles about the areas of the world your ancestors came from.
The Living DNA Test is a 3-in-1 ancestry test and not only covers your family line ancestry, but will include your motherline and, if you are male, will also include your fatherline ancestry.
Your ancestry will be put into historical context showing your breakdown today and going back up to 10 generations. It will also detail the spread of your ancestors at different points in history, showing how we are all connected.
As science and our systems evolve, your results will be continually updated free of charge to provide on-going details about your ancestry.
What You Get with the Living DNA Ancestry Test
Living DNA can show you your ancestry in twice the detail of other tests. This is possible because of the scientific teams Living DNA work with and the detailed ways in which they can explore your DNA. You can choose to view your results online or in a personalised book (at extra cost). This lets you explore your DNA mix today as well as the migration patterns of your ancestors dating back 80,000 years.
Family Ancestry with Living DNA
The Living DNA Ancestry Test gives you your estimated family ancestry breakdown today as well as looking at your ancestry through history with detailed genetic and population facts. If you have British or Irish ancestry, then it is the only test that shows where in the UK and Ireland your ancestry comes from.
Motherline Ancestry and Your Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)
You will find out where your mother’s direct ancestry descends from with a detailed breakdown of all the ancestral groups that have been part of this line. Through your mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), Living DNA look at over 4,000 areas of the history of your mtDNA and trace your motherline from the point in Africa when we all shared the same DNA until recent times. They will also highlight any famous people who share the same maternal lineage group, or haplogroup, as you.
Fatherline Ancestry and Your Y Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA)
All males taking the Living DNA Ancestry Test will have access to a section detailing your father’s direct ancestry by testing a type of DNA called Y chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) which is passed down from father to son. This will report which haplogroup and subtype you belong to as well as whether you share the same group as any famous historical figures.
Please note: fatherline results are only available to males as females do not have a Y chromosome.
