Discover your roots with the most detailed genetic test of ancestors in the world
In your DNA are all your ancestors, for thousands of years the genetic information has been passed down from generation to generation until it reaches you. With our technology, it is now possible to decode that information and see where your ancestors were from. You can see the origin of your ancestral roots.
How is this test done?
We send you a DNA kit to your home anywhere in the world. You just have to rub a cotton swab inside your mouth following some simple instructions. A few weeks after iwe get it back we send you the report by email.
How do we do the genetic study of ancestors?
Once we have read the DNA of the cells in your mouth, we analyze your genetic map with our algorithms. There are genetic mutations that are characteristic of certain places in the world, in this way we can determine what geographical areas your ancestry is from.

How many years have we gone back?
We go back hundreds and even thousands of years. The genetic mass where we focus most is about 700 years ago; 20 or 30 generations.
Are all the DNA tests of ancestors the same?
No, nor similar. Our genetic test of ancestors is the most advanced in the world. We analyze more than 1000 geographical areas (more than double the best of our competitors). At the end of this page you can see the list of our geographical areas. This list increases every month.
Unlike other ancestral genetic tests, in 24Genetics we are able to provide data for more than 1000 geographical areas, including regions or provinces of most European countries and the largest in Asia.
How will the difference be noticed?
Easy, we give you an example: while others will tell you that you have an 10% of Northern Europe, we can tell you from which Nordic countries you have that 10% and from which provinces or regions within that country. Another example: others will tell you that you are an 60% Iberian with a map that encompasses all of Spain, Portugal and southern France; we will tell you how much of that percentage is from Spain and within Spain we will tell you which autonomous community (we all have).
Do you want to create your family tree and find relatives through your DNA?
All of our genotyping products include raw data. Many companies offer family matching services that require raw data files. We advise all people who are going to use these third-party services to ensure the privacy, security and transparency policies of the company. The raw data, in addition to the information necessary for the family search, contains a lot of personal information.
Have you already taken a test with 23andme, FTDNA or someone else?
If you have already done a genetic test, we can use your Raw Data to create your 24Genetics Ancestors Report and you can reveal which regions and autonomous communities your ancestors were, something that no other company is capable of doing. Click here to place the order.
