You can look on DNA as being the genetic family crest of a lineage. Every member of the family carries this family crest. DNA analysis makes it possible to assign people as family members. Your DNA profile is compared with more than 700,000 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. Since it is updated on a daily basis, the database is growing continuously as people who are related to you get added. The database currently contains more than 700,000 profiles from more than 100 countries, making it the world's largest DNA genealogy database.
Learn about geographical origins
A comparison of the DNA profile of people from different sections of the population shows us when and where these sections moved while migrating around the world. DNA not only distinguishes specific families, but also entire sections of the population. A DNA test shows you your origins in three different periods. The haplogroup shows your origins and the movement of your ancestors during primeval times. The ancient tribe shows your ancestry in ancient times (about 900 BC to 900 AD). The region of origin shows the area in which your profile is typical and where your ancestors lived during the middle ages (500 AD to 1500 AD).
