  • Testimonials

    "Solved a long-standing but unproven aspect of our family's ancestry. We knew our most
    distant ancestor came from England to Connecticut around 1635 and now it's confirmed
    his ancestors were Scandinavian. Made a trip to Sweden long ago and never realized we
    were home! The maternal lineage was nice to know about also. The extended family tree
    back to Africa is incredible! Great to add our data to NatGeo's growing database!"

    "As an adoptee, I've been curious about my genetic and ethnic heritage
    forever. I bought the kit to finally find out. The kit arrived quickly, was
    easy to use and send back. I signed up for email alerts and was
    pleasantly surprised at how fast my results came. I was also stunned to
    learn I'm 26% Scandinavian, and 0% Irish. I've always thought I was Irish and
    Cherokee; turns out I'm Ashkenazi Scandinavian. I opted to include my
    results in the research database. I have recommended Geno 2.0 to lots
    of folks - it's fun, it's educational, it's well worth the investment."
