Origins analysis: Where do I come from?

An iGENEA origins analysis enables you to examine your origins by means of a simple saliva sample. Your Ancient tribe and your region of origin are identified. The test also includes permanent and unlimited access to the world's largest DNA origins analysis database, where you can find relatives previously unknown to you and participate in various projects to research your origins more precisely.

How is my genetic origin interpreted?

A comparison of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) with DNA of the Y-chromosomes of people of different sections of the population gives us an idea of when and where these sections moved while migrating around the world. Genetic mutations not only mark specific families, but also entire sections of the population. By studying the frequency or occurrence of certain mutations, the complex family tree of humanity can be divided into single branches.

If a section of the population then migrates or lives in geographic isolation for a long period, meaning there is no genetic exchange with other sections, separate patterns of mutation develop. If certain patterns are spread among different peoples, it means they are related. Some patterns occur only in certain peoples, thus making it possible to prove descent from these peoples.

Clarification of Ancient tribe by iGENEA

By ancient tribe, we refer to peoples from ancient times who are defined not only by their own language, culture and history, but also by their own DNA profile. An origins analysis by iGENEA determines your ancient tribe by means of your haplogroup and genetic profile. The result refers roughly to the period between 900 BC and 900 AD.
