Your DNA does not only encodes how you look like, it also enables you to discover your ancestry. Travel thousands of years back in time and discover your genetic heritage. With the Maternal Ancestry test you discover the origin of your female line.
The mt-DNA is inherited from mother to child and passed down from generation to generation. Individuals from one ethnic group share the same mt-DNA or haplotype. By comparing your mt-DNA with hundreds of different haplotypes, the geographic and ethnic origins of your female ancestor are found.

“Interesting result, never thought there were people in other South American countries with the same genetic background. Nice to discover that my native Surinamese ancestors were amongst the founders of mathematics, architecture, and literature in Central and South America, long before European colonization. Think the maternal DNA ancestry test can be important for more connection between people through their shared history. In Suriname specifically, it could lead to greater awareness of the rich pre-Colombian history and the struggle for rights for the indigenous. This is because there are many people in Suriname with mixed Amerindian background, however they are not always aware of this.”
