The largest DNA ancestry service in the world.
With over 500,000 genotyped members, you'll experience more matches, more data, and more discoveries.
Go back 10,000 years to learn about today.
Trace your lineage back 10,000 years and discover your history from over 750 maternal lineages and over 500 paternal lineages.
We trace everyone's maternal ancestry by using a small piece of DNA passed down from mother to child. While males can also uncover their direct paternal ancestry through the Y chromosome that's passed down from father to son, both men and women receive information about both sides of their family from the 22 other chromosomes.
