Living DNA and Germany’s largest genealogy society Verein für Computergenealogie e.V. (CompGen), are working with the world's leading academics, scientists and genealogists and seeking your help. Together we are looking to map the world's genetic ancestry to the finest scale possible, one where we identify patterns of DNA within countries. The resulting expanded database (see www.livingdna.com) enables people across the world to gain more detailed insight into their ancestry and how they are related to the rest of humankind. Our preliminary research has identified up to 24 distinct areas of interest for our research, where genetic differences may be observed within Germany. If your ancestors are from Germany this is where you come in.
