Analysis

Once we receive your DNA sample, our laboratory extracts your DNA’s genetic sequence. Then scientists compare your sequence to the largest database of African genetic sequences in existence.

Results

Approximately 6-8 weeks after you submit your DNA sample, you'll receive your results package with your Certificate of Ancestry, and from there your journey into self discovery truly begins.
