The knowledge about one's own origin is a basic human need. DNA-Tests offer reliable and precise tools for researching your roots.

Origin analysis

Your origin can be analysed with a simple saliva sample. Depending on the chosen test, your heplogroup, your ancient tribe and your region of origin will be determined. The access to the world's largest genealogical DNA database allows the search for unknown relatives.

With an origin analysis you will discover if you are e.g. of Celtic, Germanic, Etruscan or Jewish origin.

A DNA genealogy test can be helpful even for experienced genealogists. By comparing different people you can check their relationships. This enables you to join together different branches of your family tree and confirm or disprove speculations and family legends as well as reach back into centuries from which no written records have survived with your research.

Positive: You can investigate on a modular basis. Good support by e-mail and telephone. Negative: It takes a long time, until the laboratory results are available.

I learned that my people of origin are the Slavs. Have written to some of my genetic cousins ??and received very friendly responses.

Review by Klaus E. on the 01.02.2012: 5 out of 6 stars
Positive: fast and substantive information from Mr. Scholz. Negative: genetic genealogical research is still young. If possible, more detailed information on the haplogroups.

The service through the forum is exemplary.

Review by Elica T. on the 16.12.2011: 5 out of 6 stars
Positive:The final result was interesting and not at all what i expected. Negative:Not knowing a more specific region. by that not the fault of the process it science! I think more info on the history or the region one comes from can help appease the immediate curiosity one feels.

My origins are surprising to me, but my expectations are met. I will definitely use iGenea again in the near future since I still have questions about the male side of my family. I will probably ask a male relative to be tested. Thank you for your hard work.

Always friendly contact. Extremely long waiting times. Webpage update was not properly done (deep clade test).

Review by Samuel B. on the 24.09.2011: 6 out of 6 stars
I didn' give much information about my oral and written family history. Also, my son performed the same test as myself with IGENEA using the family name of his mother and omitting mine. Despite this lack of data, IGENEA and FTDNA accurately discovered both my remote ancestors origin and the genetic connection of my son to me. This has been for me an indisputable proof of the highest scientific quality of the work of IGENEA and FTDNA. I already recommended your services to my relatives and friends.

Positive: Especially the friendly telephone support! The iGENEA site and my results. There is nothing I would want to change.

Review by Dario P. on the 14.06.2011: 4 out of 6 stars
I think this is a good service. I think the language is very scientific and can be off-putting. i am a psychologist, so I'm used to reading scientific papers but i found the whole thing rather heavy to read. i think it may be made easier for the layman.

    FamilyTreeDNA is very popular among genealogists. There are several online tools available e.g. for the determination of the degree of relationship between two individuals. In surname projects it is examined whether persons with the same or similar surnames are related.

Paternity test

A paternity test is a test carried out by comparing a father's and child's DNA. This enables one to ascertain, with a probability of 99.99% whether the putative father is, or is not the biological father. If a specimen sample is taken from the mother as well the probability increases to 99.999%.

My father was a fatherless child. My biological grandfather was unable or unwilling to admit that he had fathered a child. Meanwhile my biological grandfather and my father have passed. The question about my origin was still very important to me. I had carried out a Y-DNA comparison with the grandson of my grand-father's brother. The Genetic test has confirmed that he was my biological grandfather.

Very professional. The paternity test could be less expensive.

Review by M. Herch on the 13.01.2012: 5 out of 6 stars
At the age of 53 years, my suspicions were finally confirmed: My parents are not my biological parents. Even as a child, I doubted the story of my parents. The doubts were at that time drawn into the ridiculous. I couldn't convince my parents to carry out a DNA test. Fortunately, I am in a good relationship with my aunt (my mother's sister). With her help I was able to confirm that I am not the daughter of my mother. Although I still do not know who is my biological mother, the result was a redemption to me.

Prenatal paternity test

The prenatal paternity test enables a paternity test during pregnancy and is completely risk free to the unborn child. It is a non-invasive test. Only blood samples of the mother and of the potential father are analyzed. The maternal blood stream consists of cell free fetal DNA. The DNA of the unborn child can be isolated and analyzed. The test is practicable from the 10th week of pregnancy.
