Popular family history website Ancestry just hit a huge milestone. AncestryDNA has now genetically tested one million people to help them discover more about themselves and their family story.
The AncestryDNA database has more than doubled in the last year, and so far they have delivered 99 million connections of 4th cousins or closer. That means that on average, 1 in 5,000 people who have taken the test are related within about 5 generations.
What does one million in our database mean for you?
DNA testing has become a must if you’re looking to discover your own story, as more people take the DNA test every day means more opportunities for connections and new discoveries. It’s amazing to look back and see how fast genetic testing has grown, but what’s really impressive are the stories of new discoveries and lives changing because of a simple DNA test.
