MatriClan Test Kit - for Men and Women
Trace Your Maternal Roots!
Find your African country of origin and tribe (ethnic group) on one branch of your family tree, your mother’s mother's line.
A simple cheek swab will reveal your maternal roots from the past 500 - 2,000 years.
We cannot guarantee that your results will be African.
The test traces maternal ancestry by analyzing the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) you inherited exclusively from your mother. In fact, you share the same mtDNA as your mother, grandmother, great grandmother and so on.
Share your result with the family. Your result is the same for your siblings, maternal aunts and uncles, maternal cousins, children and your daughter’s children. See which family members share your maternal results.
- Men and women can take this test.
- 92% of MatriClan results are African. If your results are not African, we will determine whether your maternal ancestry is European, Asian, Middle Eastern or Indigenous American but you will not receive a country or a group.
- Results include HVS1, HVS2 and HVS3 designations and haplogroup.
- The process takes about 6-8 weeks from receipt of your swabs.
