Your ethnicity estimate is a breakdown of ethnic regions based on the DNA that you’ve inherited from your ancestors. MyHeritage analyzes your ancestral roots in great depth to provide you with the most diverse percentage-based ethnicity breakdown, which includes 42 different ethnicities from around the world — more than any other DNA test. Your results are presented in an original, engaging format that’s fun to watch and share. Perhaps your ethnicity breakdown is exactly as you thought — or maybe you’ll discover unexpected surprises.
MyHeritage DNA finds you new relatives, by matching your DNA to the DNA of others. You are likely to discover new relatives you’ve never met before!
