|The Process is Simple, Confidential, Painless and Profound|
- Purchase your maternal and/or paternal ancestry test online, via paper order form or by phone at 202-723-0900.
- In 7-10 business days after you place your order, you'll receive your test kit in the mail. Simply swab the inside of your cheek and return your DNA sample via the prepaid envelope supplied. Learn more about taking the test.
- Once we receive your DNA sample, our laboratory extracts your DNA’s genetic sequence. Then, scientists compare your genetic sequence to our exclusive African Lineage Database to determine your present-day African country of origin.*
- In 6 weeks after you submit your DNA sample, you'll receive your results package and your journey truly begins. Find out what comes in your results package.
Your DNA sample is kept completely CONFIDENTIAL and destroyed after your results are found. Every sample in our lab is identified by a bar code and no personal information is shared. Review our Terms and Conditions for complete details.
*Your maternal and/or paternal ancestry may not be of African descent. If you are not of African descent, this kit can also determine whether your ancestry is European, Asian or Native American.
