DNA Archaeology Database

Archaeologists use DNA to piece together puzzles of the past. Compare your DNA to famous or notable people in history.

The DNA Archaeology database allows people who have tested their DNA to read about how DNA is used in archaeological studies and compare their genetic markers against published DNA sequences from ancient and historical individuals. You will be able to continuously access the newest DNA archaeology discoveries as they become available.

Sample Studies

Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette was the vivacious Queen of France who was, and still is, associated with the extravagant lifestyles of the 18th century monarchy. She is perhaps one of the most illustrious women in European history – in part because of her lavish lifestyle, but also because of her tragic downfall, which ultimately led to her death.

DNA Reunion Database

DNA Reunion
DNA is a powerful way to connect family members. When the paper trail ends, DNA can provide strong leads for finding missing relatives and filling in gaps in your family tree. The DNA Reunion Database allows individuals who have tested their DNA markers to search for matches in an attempt to find close and distant family members.

Indigenous DNA Database

Indigenous DNA
The Indigenous DNA Database contains data from indigenous studies from published scientific journals around the world. Scientists are racing against time to document the DNA type of the world’s existing indigenous population groups. Individuals who have tested their Y-DNA SNP markers or mtDNA markers can compair their DNA against published markers of indigenous population groups.

DNA Haplogroups Database

DNA Haplogroups
Haplogroups are ancient family groups dating back tens of thousands of years. Individuals who have tested their Y-DNA or mtDNA can view their placement in the DNA Haplogroup Phlyogenetic tree of mankind. Read about what is currently known about the haplogroup that you belong to, see how your haplogroup diversified from its roots in Africa, and view the ancient migration pattern of your mtDNA or Y-DNA haplogroup within and/or out of Africa.

Indigenous DNA Database

DNA Archaeology
As mass graves are uncovered, preserved specimens are unearthed, and historical families are investigated, scientists are increasingly turning to DNA to solve unanswered questions regarding the origins, relationships and relevance of their discoveries. The DNA Archaeology database allows individuals who have tested their DNA to read about how DNA is used in archaeological discoveries and compare their genetic markers against published DNA sequences from ancient and historical individuals.
