Ancestry.com has a vast array of useful tools to help you discover your genetic roots. Though there are many Ancestry DNA testing reviews on the web I am going to explain to you the three basic sections of your results and why these are so important!
There are three parts to your Ancestry DNA results.
- Genetic Ancestry- This includes Ethnicity Estimate and Genetic Communities (this is brand new to Ancestry!)
- DNA Matches
- DNA Circles
Your genetic Ancestry results are what YOU are. This is what you typically think of when you get a genetic DNA test done. The results are from hundreds to thousands of years back so they can really give you a good picture of where you come from. My results show I am 100% European. This is then broken down into regions, with my largest percentage on top. Each region then has a corresponding color on the map. If you click on a specific region it gives you an awesome history of that region as well as migration patterns!
