A new biogeographical DNA test described as the 'most detailed DNA testing experience in the world', providing a breakdown of 21 regions across Britain and Ireland, has been released today (12 November 2018).

FindMyPast has partnered with the providers of 'the world's most advanced DNA test', Living DNA. Together, the two British companies have created a new DNA experience which promises to provide 'the most advanced biogeographical ancestry testing experience on the market'.

What does the new DNA test offer?

The collaboration introduces a new testing experience that uses cutting-edge science to provide a unique breakdown of 80 global regions, including 21 across Britain and Ireland. This exclusive method, to Living DNA, delivers a level of detail that is 'currently unmatched by any other DNA test available on the market'.
 
This first of its kind service allows users to map their biogeographical heritage and make new discoveries about their family history, with access to Findmypast’s collection of over 9 billion historical records and newspaper articles, alongside the genetic expertise of Living DNA.
 
Users can also access interactive maps showing the global movements of those who share your DNA, from 80,000 years ago all the way up to modern day.
 
The new biogeographical DNA tests are available to purchase online from 12 November, priced at £79.
 
Tamsin Todd, CEO of Findmypast said: “At Findmypast we work to help each of our customers feel the thrill of making discoveries about themselves, their families and their roots. Our new DNA experience, powered by Living DNA, connected to Findmypast’s superior historical records, means more people around the world will be able to discover their biological links to the British Isles.”
 
David Nicholson, Co-founder of Living DNA added: “Our purpose is to make DNA testing simple. We’re passionate at not only providing cutting-edge ways of looking at your DNA, but to do so with strict privacy measures to protect your data. Our partnership allows the most precise DNA test on the market to work hand-in-hand with Findmypast’s family history records in a way not done before.”
