African Ancestry is the pioneer of genetic ancestry tracing for Black people around the world. They are on a mission to transform the way Black people view themselves, along with the way Africa is viewed.


The test kits developed by African Ancestry serve as a tool that can be used to reconnect Black people to their ancestries on the African continent up to 2,000 years ago. The core of African Ancestry Test Kits relies on the analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y Chromosome DNA and its comparison to the largest and most comprehensive database of indigenous African DNA in the world.


Their extensive research allows them to identify the present-day African country and ethnic group of origin for various branches of a person’s family tree.


African Ancestry stands apart from other companies in the industry as the first to focus solely on African lineages – the only to be Black-owned and led by a Black woman, the only to employ Black geneticists and the only company that does not sell or share our customers’ genetic information. There is power in the knowledge of one’s African roots.
