DNA origins analysis and genealogy: about the test

Step 1: Mucus Sample

A Mucus Sample suffices to get a sample of your DNA. Taking the sample is simple and painless and can be done at home. Send the samples with the envelop included in the sampling kit.

Step 2: DNA-Analysis in the Lab

The DNA from the saliva samples is isolated and then analysed. The DNA test is carried out in an ultra-modern certified laboratory. Here you can find further information: Method of Analysis.

Step 3: First Results

In 6 to 10 weeks, you will receive the first results within your iGENEA online result. The access to the worldwide largest database will then enable you to search for relatives.

Step 4: Your personal iGENEA result

The result shows your ancient tribe (e.g., Celtic, Germanic, Viking or Jewish) as well as the region of origin of your ancestors (e.g. western Europe, Scandinavia or the Middle East). Apart from that, you also receive explanations about your ancient tribe and the haplogroup as well as graphics, animations and guidance on researching your origin and ancestry. Additionally, you receive a written report with fine certificate.

The experts at iGENEA will provide you with personal guidance by telephone or email. Mr Roman C. Scholz, genealogy expert and Dipl. Biol. Joelle Apter, biologist, will answer any questions you may have about your result and help you if you need advice on how to continue researching your family.
