The test is based on Mitochondrial DNA analysis. Mitochondrial DNA or “MtDNA” is a DNA type that is inherited by male and female offspring and always passed on exclusively from the mother. Maternal ancestry testing will provide you information that would have been, prior to DNA tests, unavailable to anyone. The test compares your DNA to the DNA of a variety of maternal haplogroups in our very extensive database. These haplogroups are basically studied maternal ancestral clans and each of us can be linked to their own clan through ancestry DNA testing.
