Q:

Is there a way to distinguish maternal and paternal dna in the test results, or is it all combined with no distinction?

Susan F.  asked on  Apr 18, 2013

A:

The current BGA test that AncestrybyDNA™ is offering provides information on the proportions of ancestry on the continental level for most continents, Indigenous American, European (which includes European, Middle Eastern and South Asian groups such as Indians), and African, but we distinguish ancestries within Asia and the Pacific Rim by adding East Asian, (which includes the Pacific Islanders) as an additional group. Since there will also be interest in defining the levels of ancestry within continents (such as distinguishing Japanese from Chinese, or Northern European from Middle Eastern), we are in the process of developing a new series of Ancestry Informative Markers that will provide more insight into where within a particular continent a persons’ ancestors were most likely derived.

Q:

Does this tell you anything about your ancestors, i.e. do you have access to other DNA data bases that you can compare to? The example you give can narrow down my ancestry between Ireland and Sri Lanka...The colour brochure about human migration I already learned in High School. What are you finding out?

Q:

I am of South Pacific heritage...will this DNA test be able to trace my heritage or is it only for those who hail directly from the four population groups mentioned? How far back will the DNA matching go?

Q:

I would like to purchase the DNA Test on sale for $97.00. however, I am also interested in the mtDNA lineage test? How much extra for the mtDNA linage test? Can I order both at the same time and will their be two kits sent? Since the results will be sent online, how many pages will it be? Will I be able to print my results and save the on line file? Thank you
