Did You Know?
Six basic geographical regions can be linked to ancestry through DNA tests, many of which are divided further into sub-regions.
- North America (Native American)
- West Asia
What’s My Mix?
There’s a unique DNA structure among ethnicities. Geneticists identified this when they mapped the entire world and identified certain unique DNA traits among certain groups living in certain parts. Since the United States has a complex history of cultures and groups, many individuals who live there have multiple ethnicities in their lineage.
An ancestry DNA test will evaluate the different ethnicities running through your family’s genealogy. This type of testing can not only unlock long-lost family tree information, but it also can resolve issues of inheritance and help you take preventative measures against disease that may be part of your family history.
