Living DNA

  • Living DNA is highly recommended if you have British heritage... their 3-in-1 test includes a detailed breakdown of your biogeographical ancestry (into 80 worldwide regions including 21 British regions!), as well as your motherline (mtDNA) and fatherline (Y-DNA, males only) haplogroups.  As more regions are identified, your results will be automatically updated (Irish, German, Scottish and other regions are currently being developed and your results will reflect these as they are completed).  Get your DNA into the database now, ready for Living DNA's exciting new Family Networks and relative matching features!
