The list of countries where AncestryDNA is available just got MUCH longer–as AncestryDNA ethnicity estimates also got a boost! Is AncestryDNA sold in your country (or ancestral homeland) now? Will your ethnicities be reported more specifically and accurately? These updates are a timely reminder that genetic genealogy is still in the process of conquering the world.

AncestryDNA already has the biggest DNA testing pool in the world, with more than 25 million testers, but they are regularly improving their ethnicity estimates and making their tests available in more countries. As more people test, more AncestryDNA testers will have the hope of finding more DNA matches in their ancestral homelands. And with new improvements to AncestryDNA ethnicity results, more testers will also get a better picture of their global origins.

AncestryDNA’s ethnicity estimates

Ethnicity estimates are a popular part of DNA test results that show where your ancestors might have lived hundreds, or potentially a thousand, years ago. They have been evolving gradually, and are generally more precise and accurate for regions where testing has been more popular. As AncestryDNA gains customers in more parts of the world, it’s crucial that improvements in ethnicity estimates apply to all parts of the world.

That’s why we’re excited to see that AncestryDNA has enlarged its reference panel and updated its ethnicity estimates. They now have 88 overlapping regions and groups!

Remember: every time a DNA testing company gets better ethnicity data, you may see updates to your ethnicity estimates. You should just expect your ethnicity percentages to keep evolving

    Will all the testers around the world have to send back their kits to Utah?

    Would be nice to have labs in each country for faster results.

      Per their article, “DNA samples are tested in a secure third-party testing lab in the United States. Becoming a customer of AncestryDNA® and having your DNA tested as a part of this service results in your personal and genetic information being shipped, stored and processed in accordance with the provisions of the Ancestry® Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statement.”

    Why can’t I see any matches from Germany or the Netherlands. That’s where my brick walls are from.

      It could be that none of your close matches from those regions have done a DNA test yet, but not necessarily. Here’s a link to a guide about DNA ethnicity results (file:///C:/Users/atper/OneDrive/Lazo%20Projects/Desktop/YourDNAGuide/Free%20Guides/DNA%20Ethnicity%20Quick%20Start%20Guide.pdf) and a link to a YouTube video that explains why ethnicity results don’t always show us what we think they should (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4H_QK0GNuk).

    I was born in Malaysia but have been in Australia for most of my life. I’ve recently been wondering if I was adopted and was hoping your site might help but it doesn’t cover records from Malaysia necessarily? Any advise on where I can find out? Thanks.

      Our focus is primarily on the genetic side of tracking family history, this article is a great resource on DNA testing for Asian ancestry!

      Once your dna has been added it’s interesting to see what happens. It all depends on who of your relatives have submitted their dna.
      Once you are on the system, you will be given data has to who shares your dna, including immediate family, cousins, grandparents etc. The more dna on the system the greater the discovery.
      Even if you found a third cousin etc from Malaysia you can contact them and find out the connection between the two of you. Small steps lead to great rewards, Good luck with your search!

    My adopted adult daughter lives here in the United States. Would her taking the DNA test in the U.S. show any matches she may have in her birth country, South Korea?

      No matter what country your daughter orders or takes the test in, she will get the same results. So, yes, she can take the DNA test in the US.
