Living DNA is the world’s most advanced ancestry test, designed to help people understand more about themselves and where they come from in unparalleled detail.


Discover your paternal ancestry

By looking at over 21,000 areas of your Y chromosome, the Living DNA ancestry test explores your father’s direct ancestry in greater detail than ever before. You will receive detailed graphs of your fatherline’s migration patterns and where in the world your fatherline group is present.

As women don’t have a Y chromosome, this part of the test is only available to males.
