GPS Origins™ Pinpoint Your Ancestry
GPS Origins™ is a revolutionary ancestry DNA test that takes you deep into your family history. Traditionally, DNA ancestry tests provide a report of your ‘ethnicity’ and locate parts of your DNA in broad continental sweeps, but nothing specific, not even to the country level. The GPS Origins™ (Geographic Population Structure) ancestry test combines the latest genetic research with a new ancestral tracking technique to pinpoint more precisely where your DNA began. The GPS Origins™ test indicates the town or village where groups of your ancestors from different cultures met - building a vibrant picture of the migration journeys that formed your deep genealogical heritage. The GPS Origins™ test analyzes over 800,000 autosomal markers from your DNA to pinpoint your origins. It identifies when and where your DNA formed by matching the populations that came together to create a genetic line that eventually leads to you. The GPS Origins™ test then traces the migration route of your DNA back to where it originated from and dated the age of your DNA signature. It does that for both your maternal and paternal lineages indicating where your DNA began. Your results are detailed in a report that reveals your ancestral origins. Your personalized report identifies your top three Ancestral Origins (the Gene Pools or ancestral communities that contributed significant portions of your genetic makeup) and shows the percentages of DNA you inherited from each. The report is much more detailed than an estimate of ‘ethnicity’. Your story starts with the shared origin of all humankind, and then builds into a vibrant picture of where and how your ancestors lived, and the conditions that led them to migrate. Your report contains maps illustrating the two most important migration journeys and describes how your ancestors’ circumstances changed as they crossed continents to find better lives. The report concludes with a summary page of helpful links to discover additional information to reveal your ancestral origins.
Jewish & Euro Ancestry
- The Jewish DNA Fingerprint Test - This comprehensive test allows us to test your inherited DNA for Jewish and non-Jewish markers and also lets us establish which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors may have come from
- Jewish Marker Test - Our standard Jewish Ancestry test will establish if you have one or more of these distinctive markers. It can identify if you have inherited these markers from one or both parents.
- Euro DNA Fingerprint Plus - It focuses on European genetic studies, but even members of the black population can benefit from this test as we know that some European African can carry as much as 25% of their heritage from European genes. With so much migration within Europe, most of us really are not sure of the exact countries that our ancestors probably originated from.
Maternal Lineage – mtDNA Testing
Tracing family maternal heritage through the maternal line by testing mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). This test is based on the fact that men and women both inherit their mitochondrial DNA, found outside the cell nucleus, only from the mother. This exclusive maternal contribution allows one to trace his or her maternal line back to their “clan’s” maternal founder and places individuals into a “haplogroup”—one of more than twenty major groups that comprise the human race.
These markers define the haplogroup you belong to, which is associated with a place of origin.

Paternal Lineage - Y-STR
A paternal lineage test that reveals your ancient paternal heritage via Y-chromosome testing. This test is only available for males, as it checks the Y-chromosome markers to determine which paternal haplogroup, or “clan” you belong to.
