What makes us different
At Living DNA, we’ve redesigned ancestry testing with leading geneticists, scientists and academics to give you over twice the detail of any other test. You are able to view your ancestry at different points in history, share and compare your results whilst having full privacy and security with your data.
Your ancestry at different times in history
The understanding of where you come from depends on how far back in history you look. Most other ancestry tests only look at your recent ancestry, typically going back 4 or 5 generations. We let you look back and see your ancestry throughout human history, and discover when you shared ancestors with people throughout the world.
A regional breakdown of your ancestry
For those with ancestry from the British Isles Living DNA provides a regional breakdown, and then relates your ancestry to the rest of the world. So if you have ancestry from the British Isles, we tell you where this comes from, across 21 regions, such as Cornwall, Devon, Norfolk or North Wales.
Taking a Living DNA test is simple
Taking a Living DNA test is simple. All you need to do is order a test, activate it online when it arrives, then return it to us with two mouth swabs and let us do the rest. Results take 10-12 weeks, and we will keep you updated on the progress.
Your privacy is very important
We believe you should always be in charge of what happens to your DNA. Living DNA acts as responsible custodians for your data for as long as you choose. All information is kept confidential and secure and the company operates to multiple quality and security accreditations.
