Our origin as a species dates back to the African continent 200,000 years ago.

Since then, humans have taken various paths to achieve the present geographical distribution. The sum of all these demographic changes has resulted in the genetic make-up of today's populations, each with its particular characteristics. Drawing this trajectory and knowing our origins has always generated a lot of interest.

Fortunately, nowadays, thanks to the advances in genetics and the new improvements incorporated in the ancestry DNA test developed by tellmeGen, you will be able to discover in more detail who are your ancestors.

At tellmeGen, we are always at the forefront of genetics to offer you the best ancestry DNA test with the best service and attention

Ancestry DNA test

Find out all about your Ancestry! At tellmeGen, we have a large ancestry section where you can find out your paternal haplogroup, your maternal haplogroup, the percentage of Neanderthal DNA in your genetic material, and even how your ancestry is distributed in different populations and ethnicities with a high degree of accuracy.

Discover your maternal haplogroup

A mitochondrial haplogroup is a set of variations found in human mitochondrial DNA. Haplogroups trace and describe the path taken by our maternal ancestors, from the human species’ origins in Africa to its worldwide expansion.

With tellmeGen’s maternal lineage dna test integrated into our comprehensive genetic study, you can find out where your maternal ancestors came from and their geographic dispersion across the planet in different periods of history.

In the past, imagining where your ancestors lived and how they traveled around the world hundreds of thousands of years ago was science fiction. Now, it’s at your fingertips.

How did your ancestors travel from more than 150,000 years ago to the modern period? You can now find out and consult it on tellmeGen’s map of your maternal haplogroup migrations.

Do you share a haplogroup with famous people? There are many historical figures whose maternal haplogroups we know. In addition, many contemporary celebrities have also made their DNA test results public – find out if you share DNA with them!

Trace and discover your paternal haplogroup

With tellmeGen's paternal haplogroup test integrated in our complete genetic study, you can find out where your paternal ancestors came from and their dispersion across the planet in different periods of human history.

The oldest paternal haplogroup present in the current human population is directly descended from the chromosomal Adam, African male and homologue of the mitochondrial Eve.

How did your male ancestors travel from more than 250,000 years ago to the modern period? You can now find out and consult it on the migration map of the tellmeGen’s paternal lineage DNA test.

Know your Neanderthal DNA percentage

Neanderthals emerged approximately 230,000 years ago in Europe, the Near East, the Middle East and Central Asia.

This species, contemporary to Homo sapiens, was characterized by a stocky build, weighing around 70 kg. They possessed short limbs, a wide pelvis and a skeletal robustness indicating a highly muscled body.

Although their diet was long considered to be meat-based, more recent studies show that it was very diverse and adapted to their environment.

Neanderthals were also knowledgeable about fire, using it for cooking, as well as for making rudimentary medicines. The extinction of the Neanderthals dates back to 28,000 years ago. Most studies suggest that the expansion of our species, Homo sapiens, from Africa would have been the main cause of the disappearance of the Neanderthals, despite the interbreeding that occurred between the two.
