DNA is passed down from generation to generation, DNA Solutions new ancestry service can accurately determine your ancestors dating back approximately 150,000 years ago, going back as far as 7,000 generations! Your unique DNA profile is passed from both parents, allowing DNA Solutions to accurately determine your maternal & paternal roots.
The DNA Father wall chart portrays the story of your ancient ancestors, based on scientific analysis of DNA you inherited from your father. It traces your genetic line back to the beginnings of humanity in Africa and follows your ancestors' progress over tens of thousands of years as the human race gradually peopled our planet. A map showing the particular route your own ancestors took during these epic migrations illustrates their story. The wall chart also identifies the genes that distinguish your own genetic line and shows how your ancestors' story fits into the vast family tree that unites the human race.
Men carry one X chromosome and one Y chromosome (while woman have two X chromosomes and no Y chromosome). The Y chromosome makes men male and is passed from Father to son. The Y chromosome will passed continually from Father to son, father to son, generation after generation.
Scientists from all over the world have looked at the Y chromosome profiles from different races and tribes from all over the world, and we now know that by the particular type of Y profile you have, can tell us specifically about your male ancestors.
Much like that of mitochondrial DNA, your Y DNA profile will label you into a certain Group;
For example: Group R1a1 (M17)
This marker arose between 10,000 to 15,000 years ago when a man of European origin was born on the grassy steppes in the region of present-day Ukraine or southern Russia.
The map below shows in basic form, some of the migration routes of the different Y types.
The DNA Mother wallchart tells the story of your ancient ancestors, based on scientific analysis of DNA you inherited from your mother. It traces your genetic line back to the beginnings of humanity in Africa and follows your ancestors' progress over tens of thousands of years as the human race gradually peopled our planet. A map showing the particular route your own ancestors took during these epic migrations illustrates their story. The wallchart also identifies the genes that distinguish your own genetic line and shows how your ancestors' story fits into the vast family tree that unites the human race.
When a child is born, a sperm from the father and an egg from the mother join together. The female egg contains special packets of DNA (mitochondrial DNA). The child, if it is born female and one day bears children, she will pass on the exact same mitochondrial DNA onto her own children. And so, over thousands of generations the mitochondrial DNA is passed down the female family line. Men and woman both can be tested for their Mother’s genetic line.
Today we can look at the DNA sequence in the mitochondrial DNA and then evaluate where your ancestors came from and how they got there. Your type of mitochondrial DNA will label you into a certain Group;
Group I originating 30,000 years ago is found in Mediterranean regions
(in both Arabian and European centers), Group Q are descendants of the southern pacific regions (in particular New Guinea and Melanesia),
Group J is found prominently in Russia and eastern Europe. It was born roughly 10,000 years ago, in - or near - Mesopotamia, and migrated into Europe. There are over 20 different groups, and many of those are further divided to subgroups, allowing us to give more detail on your ancestral history.
The history and migration of your group has been worked out by hundreds of in-depth genetic studies by thousands of scientists over more than a decade. To accurately construct a picture of historical ancestry and migration, many of the studies looked at:
As an example the map below shows in basic form, a migration route of some of the different types.
From a simple mouth swab, our testing laboratory is able to analyse your DNA and reveal how your own family history fits into the global family tree that unites the human race. On your personalised genetic heritage wallchart, you will discover how your particular ancestral lineage is descended from the earliest journeys of modern humans as they began to spread out from our African motherland to people of the world.
We can reveal the prehistoric roots of your family history. Our DNA Mother service gives you the opportunity to trace your personal ancestry along your mother’s line, looking back some 150,000 years. Or you can choose our DNA Father service to explore your ancestral lineage on your father’s side of the family. We also offer a discounted dual service for both maternal & paternal services priced at €278.98.
At our testing laboratory, our expert scientific team will analyse your mouth swab. We will identify key genetic markers within your unique DNA and compare these with our database of genetic information from thousands of men and women living all across the planet. We will also examine your DNA’s genetic profile, giving us a precise understanding of your ancestral background.
The story of your ancient ancestors will be presented to you on a personalised genetic heritage wall chart. Your high-quality wall charts will be available to print on high quality paper, to ensure that you can pass this family heirloom on to future generations. Our informative wall charts are available in A3 and can be displayed in a modern design or a traditional design. All prices include postage for sending the sampling kit out. The results are sent by email free of charge. Posting the results will cost 15 euros.
