What is an ancestry DNA test?
Using your DNA, we can show you where your ancestors come from. With Living DNA, we can do this in the most detail possible, more than three times that of any other test. And it's all done using a simple mouth swab.
See your family as you've never seen them before
Your family ancestry looks at both your recent ancestry from all sides of your family broken down across up to 80 worldwide regions, and then allows you to explore this at different times in history. Developed with world leading academics it provides three times the detail of any other test.
Explore your mother's direct ancestry
With a Living DNA test you get to explore your mother's direct ancestry as we look at over 4,000 areas of your mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Understand its history and see how your group compares to others.
