DNA Ancestry Service

May 7, 2008

I just received my DNA Ancestry DNA collection kit from dna.ancestry.com (a division of Ancestry.com).  I ordered my kit online. The process was straight forward and very easy.  I ordered the “Advanced Paternal Lineage Test (Y-Chromosome 46)” kit for $199.00 USD. Pricing starts as low as $149 for the less precise and indepth Chromosome 33 test.  For some reason they recommend the less expensive Chromosome 33 test on the site but I wasn’t totally clear why.

The kit arrived by standard mail about two weeks later. The packaging is elegant and simple and just as easy to use as the site. It included:

DNA Collection Kit.

  • Instructions for collecting a DNA sample
  • A collection envelope to fill out prior to enclosing your swabs
  • A sterile pack containing three synthetic DNA collection swabs
  • Pre-paid mailing envelope addressed to DNA Ancestry
  • In a few weeks I will be receiving my results by e-mail. I am very eager to see how this turns out. I will be posting my results for everyone to see.
