Tracing Your Ancestry Advances in DNA testing are allowing people to uncover information about their genetic ancestry and find out where some of their ancestors came from. As an African American, I don’t know where my African ancestors originated from. The only geographic location I can point to as my ancestral home is Tennessee. But before I fork over more than $200 for such a test, the skeptic in me needs some answers. Companies that offer genetic testing services for finding out about ancestry use several different testing methods. Taking these tests is straightforward. “Lineage testing can trace your ancestry back to real existing people who carried that particular DNA type throughout prehistory until today,” explains Peter Forster, a geneticist at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. and cofounder of Roots for Real, a company in Cambridge that uses mitochondrial DNA tests to determine maternal ancestry. But these methods have a drawback. Another strategy for ancestry tracking is admixture testing.
