Help and Guidance

How it Works - Part 1

  • We provide you with a simple home mouth swab kit to make sending us your sample easy.
  • Our laboratory then examines your Y-DNA from the Y-Chromosome present in males as part of our New DNA v4.0 Chip​.
  • We examine the genetic pattern at standardised locations on the DNA helix - also known as markers.
  • Male line ancestry is only possible for men, as they carry the Y chromosome. Should a female want to know her male line ancestry, then a direct male relative should be tested too. 



How it Works - Part 2

  • Your results will tell you your paternal haplogroup (a genetic group that tells us about deep ancestry), your sub-group and your paternal migration routes up until recent times.

  • You can find out where your subtype first arose, how old it is and where it spread to.

  • Your personal information and DNA are kept secure and private.

  • The detailed and easy-to-read online test results will be available within 12-14 weeks. Delivery of your book will follow your online results.


How do I get started?

  • Order your home DNA test kit securely online. Price includes sample collection kit, ancestry DNA testing and personalised results.
  • The DNA sample collection is a quick and easy procedure which requires a simple saliva sample.
  • Once you have collected your DNA samples simply return them to DNA Worldwide in the pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope provided.
