Ancestry had its start as a genealogy magazine publisher in the early 1980s. The company now has the world’s largest collection of online genealogical and historical records with a database of 20 billion records and 100 million family trees.

Ancestry also offers AncestryDNA, an autosomal DNA test with precise geographic details and historical insight into the origin of your DNA, including information about the specific regions and living relatives, known as DNA matches. Ancestry pairs DNA analysis with data from its online records database and allows you to connect with your family as well as see where your family moved from place to place. The DNA matches give you color coding and custom labeling in addition to other tools.

More than 16 million people have taken a DNA test with Ancestry.

How does AncestryDNA's testing process work?

To take the test, you must purchase one of the company's testing kits online. The kit includes instructions on activating your test through the Ancestry website, as well as a plastic tube for collecting your saliva sample.  Collected DNA samples are then returned via mail to Ancestry's labs. Direct purchases even come with a prepaid return mailer. 

What DNA services does AncestryDNA offer?

Consumers can choose between the standard ancestry test or upgraded tests that add data about personal traits or health data.  DNA kits cost $99 for the basic AncestryDNA test, $119 for the Traits test and $149 for the upgraded health and wellness data. Along with the new health testing service, there is also a subscription option. Let's do a quick overview of your DNA testing options: 

AncestryDNA Test — $99

This autosomal DNA test looks for genetic markers that you have inherited from your mother and father combined. Your results include two main features:

  • Percentage breakdowns provide your ethnicity estimate, with interactive maps and charts. There are more than 1,000 specific ethnic regions in the Ancestry test. 
  • A list of DNA matches. These are people who have also taken Ancestry's test that share DNA in common with you.

AncestryDNA + Traits — $119

This test adds information about 26 different genetic traits to your basic AncestryDNA results. These results will show how your genetics influence the following traits: 

  • Asparagus metabolite detection
  • Birth weight
  • Bitter sensitivity
  • Cilantro aversion
  • Cleft chin
  • Earlobe type
  • Earwax type
  • Eye color
  • Facial hair thickness
  • Finger length
  • Freckles
  • Hair color
  • Hair strand thickness
  • Hair type

  • Unibrow
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Wisdom teeth

You will be able to compare some of your traits with DNA matches that have also purchased the upgrade. The results will also show how your traits compare across Ancestry's numerous ethnic regions. 

AncestryHealth Core Test — $149

AncestryHealth is a new offering. If you take the AncestryHealth test, you will get all of the AncestryDNA benefits, plus, for the extra $49, you get access to several different types of health information, including the following: 

  • Cancer and other health risks 
  • Carrier status
  • Heart and blood health
  • Wellness reports

The test also includes several services: 

  • A family health history tool
  • Access to genetic counseling services
  • Webinars and educational videos (if your results show that you have an increased risk of certain conditions)

After you purchase the Health test, you need to fill out a questionnaire. Because the tests are physician ordered, and there are some stipulations and not everyone is eligible for the service. This includes anyone under the age of 18, people that have had certain kinds of transplant procedures, and anyone living in New Jersey, New York, or Rhode Island. If you aren't eligible, you can get a full refund. 

AncestryHealth Plus Membership — $49 Upgrade Fee, plus 6 months subscription at $49 

This service is slated to be available in 2020. You can pay to upgrade now, if you are already an AncestryDNA member. Then, as soon as the service is available, you will be billed for the first six months of service at $49. The subscription will automatically renew. 

Health Plus adds next-generation sequencing technology, which is more comprehensive and can detect issues with more detail. Subscribers will receive additional health and wellness reports throughout the year, as well as ongoing updates to existing health reports as the testing is available and the science advances. 

If you are unsure whether the AncestryHealth testing service is for you, Ancestry even gives you direct access to a genetic counselor through PWN health to ask Qs and see if this is a good option.

Extensive Ancestry DNA Test Result

A leading company in the industry, Ancestry's test offers in-depth results in the field of ancestry DNA. You can see the origins of your DNA by region, with more than 1,000 possible regions available in its ethnicity estimate. Ancestry uses two different using two different scientific methods to provide Regions and Communities. 

AncestryDNA Regions

These regions, or ethnicities, are found by testing your sample for genetic markers common to people with known roots (multiple generations of ancestors) in a specific region. This reference panel includes more than 40,000 samples from people across the world. The timeframe for your genetic regions goes back hundreds to 1,000+ years ago. Users are provided with a percentage estimate that shows how much of your genetic makeup is from a specific regional population. To get an idea of how detailed your regional ethnicity breakdown can be, your percentage breakdown will be created from the following: 

  • Africa — 11 regions
  • America (North and South)* — 11 regions
  • Asia — 13 regions
  • Europe — 17 regions
  • Pacific Islander — 5 regions
  • West Asia — 3 regions

While these are the current regions available to date, the details of your ethnicity test can be much deeper. That's where AncestryDNA Genetic Communities come in. 

AncestryDNA Communities

In addition to the ethnicity regions that Ancestry can differentiate, this company also offers over 900 in-depth DNA Communities, indicating recent ancestors from the same shared community or culture. 

With more than 16 million samples, Ancestry has the largest consumer DNA database. Additionally, the company has the largest network of family trees in its database due to Ancestry.com's popularity as a genealogy research platform. This amount of data has allowed Ancestry to create what it calls Genetic Communities. This technology combines genetic similarities of test-takers in the database with historical records, public family trees, and ethnicity data to identify and trace the movement of distinct groups of people. Several different types of communities are considered, including religious groups, cultural groups, and groups that migrated together, either voluntarily or forcibly. 

Communities represent more recent history, from the 1700s to 1975 and are not broken down into percentage-type results. Instead, you will be presented with Genetic Communities that your ancestors were likely a part of, and a general timeline of their movements. Not everyone will receive Communities in their results, it just depends on your DNA. 

To get an idea of the available community subgroups, here is an overview: 

  • Africa — None available
  • African Americans — 96 Communities available, with identifiers like Virginia Tidewater African Americans, Central Kentucky African Americans, Afro-Haitians, and Early Virginia African Americans. Some Communities offer even further sub-Communities. For example, there are six different individual Genetic Communities classified under the larger group called Louisiana Creoles & African Americans
  • America* — 74 Communities identified, with 67 from Mexico alone. For example, these groups include Tepehuanes, Tamazula & Topia, San Bernardo & Guanacevi, and Central Durango, all differentiated under the larger Northwestern Durango Community label. 
  • Asia — 1 Community in the Philippines & Guam
  • Europe — 790+ Communities — Hundreds of them trace groups of immigrants during the era of colonialism, with similar genetic groups originating in specific parts of Europe and ending up in specific destinations in North America, South America, New Zealand, Australia, and more. Other examples include 100+ genetic groups in the Ireland & Scotland Region, 90+ Norway Communities, 60+ Sweden Communities, and 8 European Jewish Communities. This is just a taste. There are lots more. 
  • Pacific Islander — 1 additional Community showing recent heritage in Hawai'i, Tonga & Samoa
  • West Asia — 2 Communities — Armenians within the Turkey & the Caucasus Region, and Syrian-Lebanese under the Middle East Region. 

*Note: Your saliva test sample will be tested for Native American ancestry, but the results will not provide a specific tribal affiliation. However, the test will determine Indigenous American heritage, with the following possible outcomes: 

  • Indigenous Americas—Andes
  • Indigenous Americas—Central (2 additional Communities)
  • Indigenous Americas—Colombia & Venezuela
  • Indigenous Americas—Mexico (67 additional Communities)
  • Indigenous Americas—North (Covers much of the United States and all of Canada)
  • Indigenous Americas—Yucatan Peninsula
  • Indigenous Arctic
  • Indigenous Cuba
  • Indigenous Eastern South America 
  • Indigenous Hait & Dominican Republic
  • Indigenous Puerto Rico
  • Additional South American Communities — Columbians, Columbians & Ecuadorians, Ecuador, Peru & Chile, Portuguese in Northern Brazil, and Portuguese in Southern Brazil

One-Time Cost for Testing Services

AncestryDNA testing has a one-time cost of $99–$149 (excluding taxes and shipping) for each DNA test kit.

After taking the test, you can use that information and connect it with over 100 million family trees and billions of records for more information about your genealogy. However, you do need to purchase an Ancestry subscription to do so. Many people that don't know much about their family use a DNA test as a starting point for their genealogical 

No Membership Required for AncestryDNA or AncestryHealth

You don't need to be an Ancestry member to order a DNA test and get access to your results. However, an active membership attached to your account opens up special features, combining your DNA data with the company's collection of family tree data to help you find users that you share DNA in common with, to try and pinpoint where your common ancestor lies in your shared trees. 

The exception is the AncestryHealth Plus Membership, which adds a new testing technology and ongoing access to new, personalized health updates.  This is a subscription-based service. 

Genetic Matches

AncestryDNA customers benefit from the site's DNA Matches feature. It matches your genetic data up with other people who have taken the test, and, depending on how much DNA you share in common, it estimates how closely you are related, from parents and siblings to distant relatives. The company's DNA database offers to match with more than 16 million other test-takers. Users can easily message people that they match with through Ancestry's internal messaging system.

Genetic Counseling

With the addition of the AncestryHealth testing product line, genetic counseling is now accessible for consumers to get advice about health reports. Ancestry has partnered with PWNHealth to provide board-certified physicians and genetic counselors to help Health users to understand results. If there is something that you wish to talk to your doctor about, your results can be downloaded with a quick reference guide to bring to your doctor. 

Mobile App

Ancestry offers a mobile app for IOS and Android devices specifically for viewing DNA results, where you can easily peruse your ethnicity estimate results and your DNA matches.

Upgrade Options

If you started out with just the AncestryDNA test, and you want to get access to the new Health data, you don't have to pay the full test price to upgrade (as some other testing services require). 

You can upgrade to Ancestry Health Core for $49. Most customers will not need to send in a new sample to get the added health and wellness data. If you do need to send a new sample, you will be notified and get a free collection kit in the mail. 

Referral Program

If you have already taken an AncestryDNA test, you can refer friends to take one through your account. If they take it, they'll get a 15 percent discount and you will earn a $10 Amazon gift card to be delivered in your email. 

You have to send the referral messages to your friends or family through the online platform for your referral to be properly counted.

The Bad

  • Lengthy Wait Time
  • Autosomal Testing Only
  • State and Country Limitations
  • Results Online Only
  • Saliva Sample
  • Refund Policy
  • Raw DNA 

Lengthy Wait Time

Once you send in your DNA sample, Ancestry testing results take six to eight weeks to process. Although not the longest in the industry, this is still a long wait time. Some other DNA testing companies offer results in as little as three to five weeks after sample submission.

Autosomal Testing Only

Ancestry only offers one type of genetic testing: autosomal DNA testing. This means that both men and women can take the same test and get the same type of results. However, when compared to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) or Y-DNA testing (which can only be taken if you have a Y chromosome), it only offers information about much closer genetic ancestry, and ethnicity results aren't automatically attributed to your maternal or paternal line, because only your autosomal DNA, or non-sex chromosomes are being tested. 

In years past, Ancestry offered a YDNA and an mtDNA test through the National Geographic Geographic Project, with static results viewable on Ancestry's site. This has since been phased-out in favor of autosomal DNA tests, which are universal, offering the same type of results for males and females, and closer genetic history which can more easily be integrated with the type of family history research and tree-building that Ancestry users are accustomed to. 

While still an autosomal test, consumers can upgrade their DNA service to include the physical traits test for an additional $20.

State and Country Limitations

The newer AncestryHealth product is only for adults. It is not available to consumers in New York, New Jersey, or Rhode Island. 

AncestryHealth tests are not available outside the United States and its AncestryDNA genealogical DNA test is currently available for purchase in these countries:

  • Albania
  • Armenia
  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Cyprus
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • Georgia
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Liechtenstein
  • Lithuania
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • San Marino
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom
  • United States
  • Vatican City

Results Online Only

When your test results are ready, you get an email notification, with a link to login and view your ethnicity results and matches. There is no physical packet of information sent to you. The results are only delivered online, because they are constantly changing as you get new matches and the DNA algorithms are being refined. This can be an issue, especially when considering this as a gift for someone who doesn't regularly use the internet, like elderly relatives or friends.

This is a common complaint when it comes to testing companies that offer at-home DNA test kits for genealogical DNA results. If you are looking for a company that offers to send printed-out results in the mail. 

Saliva Sample

This test requires a saliva test sample, but it is not done with a swab. Ancestry uses what is commonly referred to as a "spit kit" in the consumer genetic testing industry. 

DNA testing kits come with a plastic vial that you basically spit into. Some people find it difficult to collect enough saliva into the collection tube. Other ancestry tests from alternative testing companies are available, if you prefer to provide a cheek swab sample.

Refund Policy

AncestryDNA and AncestryHealth sample collection kits are eligible for a refund if returned within 60 days of placing your order. However, a full refund isn't available. Each purchase will be refunded less a $15 processing fee. 

Raw Data Upload

While users have access to download their raw AncestryDNA data if they wish to use it or upload it to another site's algorithm, Ancestry does not allow third-party data uploads.

The Bottom Line

With the largest database of online records, Ancestry offers genealogy records as well as DNA testing services. This distinction sets it apart from the competition.

With 100 million family trees and billions of records, you can discover more about your roots from Ancestry once you've taken the test. Just know you'll need to pay $19.99 per month to access the basic U.S. records package or $34.99 per month for access to all international records.

AncestryDNA is one of the best choices for people looking to pair their DNA test results with an online historical records database to discover more about their genealogy and collaborate with genetic relatives on family history research. In addition to the genealogical data that you can learn from Ancestry, you can also try out the company's new AncestryHealth product to learn whether you are predisposed to, or a carrier for certain health issues.

My dad was adopted so my family and I had no idea what to identify as. This has given us some answers and has brought us to family we would have otherwise never known. This has been a huge blessing in our family. We have recommended this to others and they have loved this service as well. I have never heard of an unhappy customer. The company did a great job on the website giving the process a good feeling. The results were faster than I expected. I believe this company has a great team behind it with a great purpose.

We used the AncestryDNA service for my youngest son. He is adopted and there was some question around paternity, so we decided to do an AncestryDNA test to see if it would shed any light on the matter and indeed it did! I still get updates from AncestryDNA when there is a possible familial match or even a change to to his overall heritage as the database grows. I am highly satisfied and would eventually love to do it for the rest of my children (also adopted).

We sent in our saliva for a test to see if it could trace our ancestry. It did not disappoint! We found where our ancestors could be traced back too- even though it was a bit vague. We were able to connect with relatives. With more exploration we could find even more relatives. If more of our relatives were to also submit samples -a web could be established. I was especially impressed that they send updates as more relatives have joined and it changes the outcome. For more money we were offered a deeper investigation of our family lines.

It's been very educational and entertaining to know what ones background is. My daughter stated that one does not get more white bread that who I am. I'm proud to now being able to say " I'm English with the spice of Ireland lightly sprinkled." I've learned and have been able to contact others that have the same ancestors as I have.

The commercials lead me to believe that I would know my aboriginal tribe name(s) but this is completely false advertising, and I don't even have confirmation on my European ancestry either, You are given a list of wide spread areas that you may or may not have ancestry from that had people from several different ancestries in those regions. The other thing that was completely bogus was that I bought the kit for my mother for Christmas. She was sent a simple test and got nothing else from them. I would have thought at least they would mail a small certificate with her confirmed and non-confirmed ancestry areas on it but she got nothing. That's an expensive amount of money to give nothing as she doesn't have a computer to look at the results herself. I couldn't even print off the results from the website, as it won't let you do that.

We bought two kits last year for Christmas. We were so excited when they came in the mail. Getting enough saliva in the tube was a little difficult. When we got the results back we were stocked, but when it only provided us the regions where we were from I was greatly disappointed. Even though we got the kits for $49 I still felt ripped off. They should give you a couple free hints or something that will keep you spending money to find out more information For the most part, you have to fill in all of the information yourself. What's the point of saying it helps you find your family history if you are the only reason there is family history on the chart. Give me a break! I will not buy anything like this again!

I was so excited to try this product on Ancestry. I found out that I over 80 percent of Scottish blood in my family. That made my grandfather so happy. We have now ordered a test for him and my grandmother. Thank You!

I have been issuing Ancestry for many years and recently had an Ancestry DNA test done. I love to search out my ancestors and have found that Ancestry is the best way to do it.

I was excited to receive the results of my DNA test. There were several pages explaining the areas of my heritage and that was very interesting. I was nervous at first because I thought I might do the testing wrong, but I finally did it and it wasn’t too bad.

It was fun to get my DNA tested. They have a simple app to use and results didn’t take as long as expected.

This has helped me connect to family in Ireland, which was my road block from finishing my fathers side of the family.

Hate hate hate that they charge for everything! My husband was adopted and we don’t even know where to start to look for his father. My daughter and him took this DNA test worse mistake ever! It is not helpful at all!
