DNA Ancestry Test

Discover Your Ancestral Roots

DNA Ancestry Testing allows you to discover your deep ancestral roots using genetic genealogy. Find out where your paternal and maternal ancestors came from hundreds and thousands of years ago, discover their ethnic background, and trace the roots of your surname.

Genetic genealogy is the newest and most exciting addition to genealogy research. Login to your control panel and watch as your project unfolds. Metaphase Genetics is an authorized participant of the global DNA Ancestry Project.

Participation to DNA Ancestry Project is fast and simple. Begin by ordering a public Participation Kit. Your kit will arrive in the mail and contains buccal swabs. Simply use the swabs to rub inside of your cheek for 30 seconds, and mail them back to the laboratory using the pre-addressed return envelope provided in the kit.

Once you receive your results, your genealogical journey begins. You will receive a certificate outlining your ancestral markers and your predicted haplogroup which depicts your ancestral origins. Next, your journey continues as you become part of the DNA Ancestry Project, a dynamic global project which will show you which part of the world your ancestors originated, what their race was, and where they have scattered throughout the world. You can even find out if you descended from famous lines using the "famous DNA" feature. In addition, you will be able to find out how you are related to others with the same last name by participating in DNA Surname Projects. Genebase also provides search and analysis tools which allow you to search for long-lost family lines.

Genetic genealogy is the journey of a lifetime. Take advantage of this latest application of DNA testing today!
