How does ancestral testing work?
DNA ancestral origins testing is possible due to many exciting, recent advances in the world of DNA testing. Using your unique DNA profile, a comparison is made against the global populations of hundreds of separate groups and 14 distinct anthropological regions. These populations have had their unique genetic makeup studied and scientifically validated to be able to make precise comparisons with your DNA. Using high resolution mapping, you will be able to learn from which population groups and anthropological regions your genes have been passed down. Using our detailed mapping, your ancestral origins are very easy to interpret and understand.
Ancestral Origins™: your personal DNA ancestry map
EasyDNA’s Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map is divided into three distinct sections: Population Matches, Native Region Matches, and Strength Indicators.
DNA ancestry testing results
- Strength Indicators: The strength indicator demonstrates your commonality with the different regions in the FoGG genetic database in a numerical form. The strength indicator shows how significantly you are related to a group of persons from a particular geographical region.
- Native Region Matches: A separate comparative analysis is also performed which attempts to connect your genetic makeup with your anthropological native regions and provide you with the results. Using different comparison models helps us provide a more accurate answer to your Ancestral Origins™.
- Population Matches: EasyDNA provides the most comprehensive DNA ancestry test in the marketplace comparing your unique DNA makeup with every available source and database to indicate how strongly your DNA matches with those of other populations. Our simple color coded result system will display varying degrees of commonality your DNA shares with other regional populations. Take a look at the DNA Ancestry map HERE.

This service can be purchased after you receive your map for €100 per session. Consultation sessions may not be recorded or reproduced without the expressed written consent of EasyDNA.
DNA ancestry testing is only now possible due to exhaustive research and data compilation from scientific sources from around the world. The process and initiative to build a population pool of DNA data comes from various intellectual bodies, institutions and print publications including Forensic Science International and The Journal of Forensic Sciences, the Yale School of Medicine, and even our collected DNA data. This invaluable combined data source is referred to as the “FoGG DB” or the Focused GeoGenetic Database. The vast amount of genetic information helps us run cross- check comparisons with your DNA to determine which populations are DNA most closely resembles.
Other tests: GPS Origins™
GPS Origins™ is our most advanced ancestry testing service. This test is able to pinpoint the origins of your ancestors to the finest degree. It can help you discover what countries, cities or islands your ancestors came from through a new ancestry tracking tool known as the Geographic Population Structure (GPS).
