Professional, quick, and without fuss.

Peace of mind: Sibling Testing
The week Mum died just before my 61st birthday she told me my father wasn’t my father. Other comments she made to my brother and sister lead us want to find out the truth. After much researching we all agreed I should call DNA Worldwide.
I called and Kate at DNA Worldwide put me at my ease straight away. I have since spoken to both Michelle and Andrew at DNA Worldwide and have nothing but praise for the quiet professional way they take you step by step through the process in order to make sure the procedure is both fully understood and easy to follow.
It is an emotional time but Kate and her team helped reduce that stress by the way they dealt with everything and after six days we received our results. We have no hesitation in recommending DNA Worldwide.

My experience of DNA testing
27 January 2014
Peace of mind: Sibling Testing
I’m an only child of 33 years of age. It’s always just been myself and my mum, I have never known my father. Sadly my mum passed away in 2009 which left me on my own with just myself and my husband and children.
We just had to get on with our lives again after mum died and tried to rebuild it the best way possible.
In 2013 my friend from Ireland contacted me to say a lady had contacted her on a social media website because she was searching for her potential sister and believed it was me.
My friend gave me a email address for this lady and I sent her a message to say I believe you have been looking for me, she went on to say that she believed her father was my potential father but I didn’t see how this is possible as the name I was told to be my father was not the name of her father, she told me her father and my mother had had a relationship just around the time I was conceived and that there was a possibility her dad could be mine.
As you can imagine this turned my whole world upside down and as my mum had died I had no one to answer my questions I was left reeling.
I contacted my aunt and she said yes your mother did have a relationship with her father. I think it was after you were born, but the lady was adamant that her dad could be mine.
We have spent the last three months building a relationship and before we could go any further we spent €375 euros to do a DNA test with another company.
We did the DNA and had to wait 3/4 days for the results, they came back 76.7% which is an inconclusive result which meant yet again we were in limbo and stuck asking unanswered questions.
That’s when I spoke to DNA Worldwide and told them about our situation and that’s when they offered to help me, we all did the DNA test again and the waiting game began again but this time it would take a little longer as DNA Worldwide test for more DNA markers which gives a better accurate reading.
I have since had the results which are totally different this time the results were so much clearer and totally different.
There is no possibility that myself and the possible sibling could be related. Which meant that I could once again go on and believe what my mum had told me because my mum had given me a name and I started to doubt everything I had ever been told my whole life, and as my mum is no longer around she could not verify any details I had been told so it was a very one sided story until the team from DNA Worldwide helped me and I could finally get back to living my life.
If my story can help anyone else in their DNA journey I really hope that it does save them the heartache and pain I have gone through over the last three months.
