Stay at the forefront of ancestry innovation with our exclusive labs.
As an example, learn what percentage of your genome came from Neanderthals.
We estimate how much of your DNA is from Neanderthals and compare it to other users.
- Modern Human
- Higher brow
- Narrower shoulders
- Slightly taller
- Heavy eyebrow ridge
- Long, low, bigger skull

Find relatives across continents or across the street.
Ever wonder who's related to you? You'll likely discover dozens or even hundreds of people who share DNA and ancestors. The matches you'll get can range from close family to distant cousins.
Build your family tree and enhance your experience.
Preserve your family's history by highlighting names, dates, events, and more. See if you can gather data from newly found relatives to fill in the missing branches of your tree. If you already use a family tree service, you can easily import your tree.
Share your knowledge. Watch it grow.
Make the most of your results by inspiring family members to join 23andMe. The more family members you have in the database, the more comprehensive the picture of your ancestry will be.
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.
