mtDNA Testing

Start From the Beginning With mtDNA Testing
Humans are an inquisitive lot and at The Paternity Center we are always willing to help satisfy that curiosity.
We, in fact, can answer the eternal questions of "Who am I? And where did I come from?" or at least come close to it, with
mtDNA testing.

Like asking a friend to tell you a secret.

Mitochondrial DNA, or mtDNA testing, analyzes the DNA sequences passed down through the maternal line in your family.
This analysis begins with taking a sample from you and following the results of that sample to your mother, and then to your grandmother, your great grandmother and beyond. Because the mother-line, or matrilineal, DNA is passed down from woman to woman unchanged, it is possible to gain insight into your ancestry that is not available through other means.

We take pride in helping people identify not only their place of origin, but also possible ancestral connections that may not always be evident.
Through this testing people have learned of their connections to famous (and infamous) historical figures, as well as to families within their regions. Sometimes people researching using mtDNA come across big surprises.

Entire television shows and series have been built around
DNA testing.
They are fun, informative, educational--and quite often very important. Some people make use of DNA testing to determine ancestry for curiosity's sake, of course, but for others it is extremely important to know the details.
Some medical issues are passed down through the generations among some populations, and the earlier you and your doctor are aware of the possibilities, the better. As a reminder, though, at the Paternity Center we respect your privacy and security. Who you share your information with is up to you.

Here are just a few of those who make good use of mtDNA testing:


Of course people who are researching their ancestry or that of another find that testing mtDNA brings bountiful results.
This type of testing is invaluable in skipping the need for, or augmenting, recorded history and going right to the source.

African Americans

Many Americans of African descent have been left with no idea of where their families originated, due to the lack of records prior to the slave trade. Many African Americans have found their ancestry through taking the mtDNA test, which at least gives them a region in which to begin their research. Sometimes the test can even pinpoint an existing cultural group within an African country, which brings them even closer to finding out about their ancestral families.


Some adoptees are not only unaware of who their birth parents are, they also do not know their ancestral or medical history.
This is something that can, in a sense, be rectified through
mtDNA testing, as well as paternal DNA testing. Adoptees are able to build a general ancestral and medical history, which can give them peace of mind and also a sense of place.
