Years ago I had my dad and his brother test their autosomal DNA and to our surprise they connected to the Jewish Diaspora. I had their paternal cousin (their dad's maternal first cousin) test and her results first came back 24% Middle Eastern Jewish and later refined to16% Jewish Diaspora.

Ancient DNA Origins helps to contextual our modern DNA results by comparing them to ancient DNA. The Ancient Semitic Ancestry results yield significantly high for my dad and his cousin: 100% for Ethiopic, Hebrew, Moabite, Ammonite, and Edomite. 50% for Aramaic and Akkadian and the only difference between the two is Phoenician with my dad at 54% and his cousin at 72%. My dad's brother has lower percentages as do I however this is fascinating. Thank you for exploring and offering ancient DNA comparisons

Some of these kingdoms, people and places, I'd not even known before Ancient DNA Origins made them available for testing. I run ALL of the tests available to hone in on my history as a means to channel the region, the people and fine tune the results. I feel this is necessary because if you don't test all the kingdoms, people and places, you'll skew your results with false positives. I'm well pleased with these tests and I anxiously await more to better prove who my ancestors are and from whence they originated.

We don't know how environment and circumstances along with our DNA influence what we believe as far as myths, legends, and religion. This test is really interesting. We can use our DNA to tie us to ancient cultures and their beliefs. And, we can see that DNA alone doesn't determine our beliefs.

Thanks for the test.

I’ve used Ancestry, Genomelink, GED Match, and My True Ancestry. I would say I’ve gotten the best in depth information on my ancient origins from Ancient DNA Origins. Dr. Eran Elhaik has nailed it here. My results point directly to my Jewish origins and so did other tests but this one got it more in depth and discovered higher percentages than thought by other companies! I definitely recommend this service! Sure use others but honestly this is one of my main jams right here.

According to this test have Israelite Semitic ancestry. On Dna Consultant according the Jewish test.

My heritage, National Geographic and Crigentic shows Iberian Peninsula definitely connected to the tribe of Judah and Benjamin.

FAQ

  • Q: What do Ancient DNA Origins offer?

    A: Ancient DNA Origins offers the first and only genetic tests that employ ancient DNA from real ancient people, ranging from the Paleolithic to the mid-19th century. Our tests report your genetic relationships with ancient individuals and cultures from all over the world, like Paleolithic Americans, Icelandic Vikings, or the legendary Tribes of the Biblical Israelites (before their exile).

  • Q: How is Ancient DNA Origins different from other DNA testing providers?

    A: Providers will typically compare your DNA to the DNA of modern people, such as yourself. They cannot teach you about the ancient past. We provide a comprehensive collection of cultures and report your genetic identity at the level of ancient individuals. We also provide genetic, historical, and archeological information about ancient people and cultures at low-cost prices.

  • Q: I am a genealogist. How can I use Ancient DNA Origins for genetic genealogy?

    A: With our tests, you will go far beyond the inventions of photography and paper and discover new connections with ancient people that, thus far, existed only in stories and legends.

  • Q: How accurate are your tests?

    A: Our tests are developed in collaboration with top geneticists like Dr. Eran Elhaik, who has been developing genetic tests for two decades during his tenure at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Elhaik designed the GenoChip 2.0 kit and test for National Geographic, the GPS Origins kit and test for HomeDNA, and a plethora of tests for Gene Plaza. His Ancient DNA Origins test series is the first to combine paleogenetics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve an accuracy of 95%.
