Three types of test

Family Tree DNA offer three types of test and will be pleased to share information and answer questions about which test is right for you. You can talk to the experts at the FT DNA stand at Family Tree Live and learn what each of the tests offers:

  • Paternal ancestry (Y-DNA)
  • Maternal ancestry (mtDNA)
  • Family ancestry (family finder)

DNA and privacy

You can also learn about the industry standard practices that ensure the safety and privacy of your DNA data and personal details – unlike many other testers, your DNA is processed and stored on site and not sent out to a third party laboratory. FT DNA use the latest technology including Illumina’s powerful HumanOmniExpress-24 chip and NovaSeq Sequencing System, allowing us to genotype DNA at the highest level and process the greatest number of samples.
