How Does It Work?

Details

Men and Women - Test your mother's maternal ancestry.

The MatriClan Test will reveal the African country of origin and ethnic group (tribe) that you share maternal ancestry with during the past 500 - 2,000 years.* This test will not provide percentages of different regions.

Our kits include everything you need to submit your sample and we never sell or share your DNA!

Our result package is sent via email and includes:

  • Official results with HVS1, HVS2 and HVS3 designations and haplogroup from mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) that women and men inherit from their mothers
  • Certificate of Ancestry with specific ancestral country and tribe 
  • E-book Guide to African History and Cultures
  • Access to our exclusive African Ancestry Online Community on Facebook

Click here to see who else in your family tree shares your maternal result! 

* Your maternal ancestry may not be African, despite any percentage data you may have from another company. We cannot guarantee your result will be African. THERE IS A 8% CHANCE THAT YOUR RESULT WILL BE NON-AFRICAN. If your maternal result is not African, we will identify whether it is European, Asian, Middle Eastern or Indigenous American but you will not receive a country or a group. NO REFUNDS for non-African results.

Another surprise from the my Matriclan Test

If you are of black decent, African Ancestry is really the only choice you can make to find out and understand where you come from simply because they have the largest number of DNA samples for the black race.

I was told my roots were from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, particularly from the region called Ijebu. My father has always been proud of these roots that were told to him. In searching to find out who I am and after taking genetics test that some of the results were inconsistent with what I know of the people from Ijebu and the Yoruba tribe I decided to contact African Ancestry and decided to do both the Matriclan and the Patriclan tests.

I was extremely surprised when I received the results of the Matriclan test. I discovered that on my Father's side (father to father to father etc.), again was not the Yoruba tribe or even any tribe from what is known as Nigeria. The results came back that my ancestry originates 3 tribes from Gabon (two countries away from Nigeria).

Understanding the migration of Africans all over Africa for centuries, it made sense, especially as on my father's side they really do not look like the typical Yoruba Tribe person (if there is such a thing as a typical look). Many had told me that when I visited Nigeria that my father nor I looked like a Yoruba person, which I found strange thing to say as what does a Yoruba person look like.

Anyway, it has been a great journey of exploration which has answered some questions that were probably not…

I AM SO GRATEFUL

African Ancestry.com is so professional. Even though it took a while to get the results, it was well worth it. I received my results a few days before my birthday so it was a gift that was unimaginable. I was sent a full report of the details of my report which included my tribe and a short overview of that country. Wow!!!!! The CEO Gina is great with the followup emails and quick responses to any questions or concerns. African Ancestry is the way to go and I am so proud to be a part of their family ( which they tell you in the email, Welcome family!!!!)

Summary Of My Experience

I waited so long to finally bring myself to find out about my Ancestry, and I'm so glad I did. I was

nervous and thought I would mess up the proceeder, but it was very easy. Once I sent in my kit, I decided to not think about it again until I got the results. I was also so happy, I cried and cried. It took me a few days, no it took a few weeks for it all to soak in.

Don't have to wonder any more!!!

I love the fact that the test results are country and tribe specific!! Because both sides of my family are from the Low Country of South Carolina, I had long assumed that my ancestry was from five possible countries in West Africa. The results confirmed three of the five countries. I'm really thrilled to know the four tribes. Now if only the pandemic will pass so I can start traveling!
