Indigenous DNA Database

Find out which indigenous population group is the closest match to your DNA type.

The Indigenous DNA Database allows individuals who have tested their Y-DNA SNP markers or mtDNA markers to compare their DNA against the published markers of indigenous population groups from around the world to see which indigenous groups are the closest match to their DNA type.

The Indigenous DNA Database contains data from indigenous studies from published peer reviewed scientific journals from around the world. The Indigenous DNA population database is updated whenever new population data is published.
  • Compare your DNA markers against the data from indigenous studies from published peer reviewed scientific journals to see which peoples and places are most similar to your DNA type.
  • How accurate is the comparison? The comparisons are only as accurate as the research data published in the article, the populations available and the population size sampled. Indigenous DNA is simply a tool which facilitates the comparison of your DNA markers with genetic markers from indigenous populations from published research journals. We have no control over the search results. Please note that the reliability of the search results is highly dependent upon the population size. The more populations added and the larger the population size, the more reliable the search results. Thus, the database will become stronger as more journals are added.
  • If you do not see your region in the search list, you will not see it in the search results as it is not in the comparison.
  • If your region is not in the database, it means that your region likely has not yet been studied and there is no published data for that region. We cannot add regions that have not yet been published in scientific journals.
  • We do not take amateur data. All data in the indigenous DNA database are from recognized peer reviewed scientific journals.
  • Many factors affect which populations show up in the search. Population size is a major determining factor.
  • Should I rely on the results? The search results are meant to be used as supporting evidence and not meant to be used stand alone. Please use these search results in conjunction with or to supplement your DNA haplogroup studies.
  • Can you add more populations or add my region? Only if it is published. If it is not published yet, we will need to wait until population studies are available.

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.
