AncestryDNA Test Kit

AncestryDNA Test Kit – Amazon

The details

Ancestry began as an opportunity for people to explore their genealogy by accessing historical records like marriage certificates, military records and immigration and travel data.

Now, Ancestry is making it easier for users to learn about their roots through AncestryDNA. The DNA testing service provides users with ethnicity estimates by region and can help identify new family connections. It should be noted that you can still explore your ancestry and DNA results without making yourself open to connecting with potential relatives; all you have to do is opt out of the feature to connect with people).

While there are other DNA kits on the market, Ancestry offers the largest database of samples (approximately 18 million samples to compare your DNA to) providing greater accuracy in ethnicity estimates and increased chances of matching with relatives.

What people are saying

Ancestry's DNA Kit has earned an average 4.5-star rating based on more than 52,500 Amazon reviews (more than 41,000 are five star). Amazon users have called the Ancestry DNA Kit a “great gift” that can help you put the pieces together of your family history.

Amazon's reviews share lots of personal anecdotes from users who were able to find biological relatives and connect with distant family.

Ancestry’s DNA kit pulls from approximately 18 million samples to provide an ethnicity estimate.

“It's great to find out family history since one side of the family was adopted,” one Amazon shopper wrote.

“Super helpful product if you are interested in genealogy or your ancestry,” another wrote.

“It's like this test allowed me to place the last piece on my ethnic identity puzzle,” someone said.

Although there are thousands of positive reviews online, there are some things to consider before you buy an Ancestry DNA Kit. Firstly, the DNA Kit provides you with access to your ethnicity estimates and DNA matches, however there are membership fees required to access other features on Ancestry.com.

If you're looking for the basics of DNA information only, you'll likely enjoy the kit itself. However, if you're looking to build your family tree and explore your genealogy in-depth, you'll have to either sign up for a yearly Ancestry membership or pay a monthly fee.

Verdict

Ancestry DNA is a next-level approach to discovering your family's genealogy. If you're looking to learn more about your family without the added information of genetics and health reports, Ancestry's DNA kit might be for you. However, if you're not ready to pay for a membership to access in-depth details about your family's history, you might want to reconsider — or manage your expectations about what you'll learn with your results.
