Ancestry DNA testing services in the USA
homeDNAdirect USA offers ancestry DNA testing for clients interested in learning more about their ancient family tree and origins. Ancestry DNA testing is an advanced type of test, analyzing very specific regions on your DNA to determine who you ancestors were and where they came from many thousands of years back. Our ancestry test offers you an unprecedented glimpse into your ancestral heritage.
How ancestry testing works
This test is possible because of a simple fact: You share much more common DNA with your ancient predecessors than with your relatives a century or so back. When you first ancestors left Africa and migrated to explore and discover the vast world beyond them, their DNA started undergoing mutations. These mutations where passed on, generation after generation and have been inherited today, by you. Thanks to the genetic information we have of many different anthropological groups or haplogroups we can provide you with invaluable information about your ancestors. Our test will confirm what percentage of your genome you share with the many anthropological groups or haplogroups of which genetic data we have in our database.
3 different types of test for you to choose from
The following are very brief descriptions about our tests. We definitely suggest clicking on the links provided to get a more – in depth understanding of all that each test will help you discover.
Ancestral origins DNA testing is the most popular ancestry test as most people want to get a generalized picture of their ancestral roots. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (these are small variations in DNA sequences) will indicate a person’s ethnic background. The results will show your regional matches and your population matches based upon your DNA profile. Click here for more information.
Maternal lineage testing: this is one of the two lineage tests we offer and give you the chance to delve into your ancient maternal ancestors. This test uses mitochondrial DNA, a special type of DNA that you inherited from your mother and which gets passed down generation after generation exclusively down a maternal line. This direct maternal line helps us trace your foremothers’ journey and confirm your maternal haplogroup affiliation. Click here for more information.
Paternal lineage testing: Our paternal lineage test is done by analyzing the male Y chromosome. Any males sharing a direct male line will have the same Y STR profiles. Basing ourselves on your Y STR profile we can determine your paternal haplogroups designation. You will discover and retrace the migration paths of your fore bearers. Click here for more information.
