|Our Exclusive African Lineage Database|
Our exclusive African Lineage Database is the largest and most comprehensive resource of African lineages available today. It includes lineages from 30 countries and over 200 ethnic groups.
Paternal lineages: 16,098 samples
Maternal lineages: 14,211 samples
The data is a compilation of published sources, research collaborations and primary research. The populations sampled are based on direction from historians, anthropologists, linguists and other geneticists.
This extensive database allows us to find identical matches for approximately 85% of the people we test. For the remaining people, we find closely related lineages with greater than 95% confidence. To find out more about the science behind genetic ancestry testing, click here.
