Are you Jewish?
Do you have Jewish roots? Are you an Ashkenazi? Are you a Levi or a Cohen?
A DNA test by iGENEA provides you with clear evidence of whether you have Jewish roots. Based on your specific genetic characteristics, we can identify whether you are of Jewish descent, from which line the Jewish descent is (paternal, maternal or both lines) and even to what percentage you are Jewish. In addition, your profile is compared with more than 600,000 people in our database. If we find a genetic match, i.e., people with whom you correspond to a certain degree, then you have the opportunity to contact these people and intensify your family research.

Is Judaism more than a religion? Is there a jewish Gene?
Ethnic groups who marry among themselves and for generations are genetically "linked". It is scientifically undisputed that there are genetic patterns that occur frequently in Jews. Jews have developed over the centuries a certain degree of genetic homogeneity that becomes visible in a DNA-test.
The Jewish People, however, is not entirely genetically seperable. So no test can give you an unambiguous proof. Nevertheless a genealogical DNA test can confirm a jewish origin.
Even if you don't belong to one of the typical Jewish haplogroups, you could still have Jewish roots. By comparing your DNA-Profile with all other profiles in our databank (over 350,000), you will find persons whose profiles are genetically similar to yours ("genetic cousins"). If many of your genetic cousins are Jews, then there is a high probability that you have Jewish roots, too.
