Ancestry Test Kits

African Ancestry Test Kits are designed to trace the ancestry of single lineages of the family tree. Trace your maternal line with the  MatriClan Test. Trace your paternal line  with the PatriClan Test. We identify the specific African country of origin and tribe that you share ancestry with during the past 500 - 2,000 years... if the result is African. We destroy your DNA - we do not sell or share it.


Safe, secure & painless.

From a simple swab from inside your cheek, your DNA is kept completely confidential and destroyed after analysis. We NEVER sell your information.

how it works

Let’s get specific.

Once we receive your DNA sample, our laboratory extracts your DNA’s genetic sequence. Scientists compare your sequence to the largest database of African genetic sequences in existence.
