23andMe began offering its direct-to-consumer (DTC) DNA (Desoxyribonucleic Acid) testing service in November 2007. Customers provide a saliva sample that is SNP genotyped. Results are posted online, along with an assessment of inherited traits, genealogy, and possible congenital risk factors.

This is the largest DNA ancestry service in the world! With over 650,000 genotyped members, you’ll experience more matches, more data, and more discoveries.


DNA Testing by 23andme.com


Find out what percent of your DNA (Desoxyribonucleic Acid) comes from populations around the world, ranging from East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and more. Break European ancestry down into distinct regions such as the British Isles, Scandinavia, Italy and Ashkenazi Jewish. People with mixed ancestry, African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans will also get a detailed breakdown.

Find relatives across continents or across the street. Ever wonder who’s related to you? You’ll likely discover dozens or even hundreds of people who share DNA and ancestors. The matches you’ll get can range from close family to distant cousins.

Build your family tree and enhance your experience. Preserve your family’s history by highlighting names, dates, events, and more. See if you can gather data from newly found relatives to fill in the missing branches of your tree. If you already use a family tree service, you can easily import your tree.

Share your knowledge. Watch it grow. Make the most of your results by inspiring family members to join 23andMe. The more family members you have in the database, the more comprehensive the picture of your ancestry will be.

Dear 23andMe: I just received my results today. Wow! Wow! Wow! There is so much information! So much more than I thought I would receive. I've been sitting here going through the results with a smile on my face. I gave my brother a kit for Christmas and waiting for his results to come through. In the meantime, I'm sharing the results with both my sister and brother. What's amazing, interesting, and exciting is that we share DNA with Royal Europeans! Wow! Blew me away!
Thank you 23andMe! This is so much fun and so rewarding!!!
