DNA testing kits used to provide very general information about where you might share a common DNA heritage with others from certain regions. Things have changed a lot in this field.
1. Where Are You From?
An ancestry DNA test kit can tell you where your ancestors are from. In a very visual way, you can see from what part of the world your ancestry hails from.
The Ancestry kit provides 5 times more regions than other kits so you get more specific information about your ancestors’ locations. But there’s more to it than that…
2. Migrations – When Were Your Ancestors on the Move?
With the migrations tool, you can find out when your ancestors reached their destination and perhaps where they settled. It’s an amazing tool unparalleled compared to other tests.
3. Match up with Real People
How does your DNA connect you to real people? Ancestry’s family 90,000,000 family trees, you can fill in the gaps in your own family tree.
4. A Better Picture of Your Family History
Not all DNA tests are the same.
“Unlike some other DNA tests, which only analyze the Y-chromosome (and can only be taken by a male to look at your direct paternal lineage) or mitochondrial DNA (can be taken by a male or female but only looks at your direct maternal lineage), AncestryDNA looks at a person’s entire genome at over 700,000 locations.”
With the Ancestry test, you get a more complete picture from the testing.
