Free DNA testing is being used to identify the ancestral roots of individuals. Ancestry DNA testing is a scientific method that allows ones ethnicity to be worked out. This is done by comparing different DNA points. In North America many individuals are curious about whether they have Native American roots. That’s why free DNA testing Native American has become so popular.

Let’s face it North American ethnicity is a big melting pot. One could be Indo, European, Asian, African, or Native American to name just a few or one could be a mix of any of these. But in recent years more and more people want to find out if they are genetically related to the Native American people of the past.

You can order your free DNA testing Native American ancestry kit online or through any lab that does regular DNA testing. Normally you would simply take a swab of the inside of the cheek and then you would present that sample to a laboratory who would provide you with the results.

The lab might look at the maternal or mitochondrial DNA, or DNA from the paternal line. When looking and mitochondrial DNA there are around 400 points that are different where as with the paternal DNA there is no more than 37 that are needed.

When you get your results you’ll get a letter. This letter will correspond to a specific ethnicity such as Native American, African, or Asian. When you get the letter you can equate that letter to your main ancestry group based on this information.

Oceana, Pacific Islands, Papua New Guinea N : Australian is: P O Q
East Asian is: M, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, O, P, Q, Z
