Origins

See where you came from and the percentage of "blood" you have from your countries of origin with the new Origins Report.

We all know that we come from somewhere...but where?

Whether you posit the Bible or lean towards Mitochondrial Eve and Y-chromosomal Adam, most of us will be lucky whether we get back 3-4 centuries. Personally, I'm only back to 1797 - 216 years. But as we progress backwards in time, it is nice to see where we hail from.

The Origin Report takes an Individual and looks at the country level of where the ancestors were born.

Migration

See how far and wide a person's descendants spread out in the world with the new Migration Report.

If you find your family in the most unusual of places; start by asking yourself - why are they here?

Like the Origin's Report, the Migration Report works in reverse. So this time, you begin with an individual, and the report looks at them and their descendants.
