FamilyTree DNA

Follow the path of your ancestors and discover your unique DNA story with FamilyTreeDNA’s industry-leading test. In 2000, FamilyTreeDNA became the very first company to deliver direct-to-consumer DNA testing for ancestry.

Family Ancestry
Learn more about your ancestry by discovering the percentage breakdown of your origins from ancestors that lived up to 500 years ago, and by connecting with DNA relatives across the globe. Go back even further and compare your DNA to DNA found at ancient European archaeological dig sites.

Paternal Ancestry
With our advanced Y-DNA tests and the world’s largest Y-DNA database, males can use Y-DNA to determine where their direct paternal ancestors came from and how they migrated throughout the world.

Maternal Ancestry
Because mtDNA is passed down almost unchanged from a mother to all of her children, both males and females can trace their maternal line’s ancestry using our advanced mtDNA tests and the world’s largest mtDNA database.
