- We are excited that you are here and that you're interested in your ancestry! Native DNA is an ancestry DNA testing company that results from one decade of extensive Genealogical DNA research. The majority of our population genetics knowledge results from the lengthy research required to construct our high power short tandem repeat (STR) genetic calculator that currently contains over 1000 populations from around the world. This population data stems from both peer reviewed university journal articles as well as notes from federal agencies across the globe. Also, we’ve constructed a number of simulated populations which have resulted from years of research, and amplified (populations that have been statistically enhanced to better represent your true ancestry) are sure to satisfy your desire to learn more about your family’s origin.
- Ten years ago, when I began studying the fascinating patterns involved in populating this planet, I never could have imagined the level of knowledge that would be required to satisfy personal questions concerning my ancestry. Humans, curious and persistent by nature, have never ceased in their quest to explore beyond the horizon. It is this insatiable drive that lead American Indian forefathers out of Asia and into their new homeland, prompted the Romani people to set forth on a lengthy journey from India toward Europe, and gave Sub-Saharan Africans the longing to seek distant shores in the south Pacific, thousands of miles east of their genetic seedbed. As a result, all of us have such incredible stories hidden within the genetic code we call DNA. Could it be that some of your ancestors were a part of the large exodus of Mayan Native Americans forced to flee their homeland due to severe climate change that rendered a lifestyle of the past impossible? Whatever your roots, your ancestors surely have a unique story all their own! We have the scientific knowledge and population database to answer questions about your ancestry, many of which may be shrouded in mystery.
Humans, although more than 99% genetically similar on a cellular level, have such wonderful physical and cultural differences that make us strikingly different yet the still the same. This is something that fascinates me more each day...
We are always here to help!
