How can DNA tell your heritage?
Taking the test
The MyHeritage DNA kit enables you to test your DNA and reveal valuable information about your family history and ethnic origins. The kit consists of a simple cheek swab (no blood or spit required) and takes only 2 minutes to use.
How do you get a DNA test for ancestry?
To take an AncestryDNA test, all you have to do is fill the test tube that comes in your DNA test kit with your saliva and mail it in with the pre-paid mailer. You’ll then receive your DNA test results online (typically in 6-8 weeks), via the free Ancestry® account you create when you activate your test.
How do I send my heritage DNA kit?
To ship your DNA sample, place the two vials in the clear plastic bag included in the kit and close the ziplock. Then, place the bag in the enclosed addressed envelope. You may also use a padded envelope of your own. Mail the envelope to the laboratory at your postage expense.
