About the test

Do you have a family tradition about your Israelite origins? Did you ever want to be part of a great story? Do you want to know the people who lived at the times of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, The Judges, and King David?  According to the Book of Joshua, the Tribe of Reuben was assigned the southeast territory, east of the Dead Sea. We reconstructed the DNA of eighteen ancient people from the territory of Reuben in three central sites, including Mount Nebo. Together, this test includes eighteen people who lived between 8,050 and 1,050 BC, from Adam to King David. The test provides a detailed history of the Reubenites from prehistoric times, their haplogroup breakdown, and history of encounters with other people and summarizes the clues as to the whereabouts of the tribe after it was exiled by Assyrians. The test includes a detailed historical, archeological, and paleogenetic background on the ancient Reubenites, including how they lived, their cultic practices and mysticism, how they treated others, and their deeds. A detailed profile is available for every ancient tribe member.

Why take this test

Up until 2010, reading the DNA of ancient people was a dream. Since then, the DNA of a Neanderthal who lived over 30,000 years ago has been sequenced. After that reading, the DNA of ancient people who lived from 15,000 BC to 1,800 AD all over the world became the main object of paleogenomic research. This leap forward in technology allowed the creation of a new type of DNA test — tests that do not use modern-day populations as stand-ins for the ancient tribes but rather go right to the source and study these ancient peoples themselves.

The Ancient DNA Origins DNA test is the first next-generation DNA test. It is designed solely using the DNA of ancient people throughout history using our novel technologies.

With this test, you will receive a precise ancient ethnicity estimate with far greater geographical details than you could imagine. You will make new connections with historical people and places where your ancestors lived, walked, battled, created, and dreamed thousands of years ago. Using the genetic data and evidence from history and archeology, we can revive the past and allow you to take part in this story at the most personal level.
