Bringing Ancestry to Life

If we are to understand the bonds of humankind, we must first learn how to uncover the ancestry of one man or woman. It is, after all, a small step that leads to a giant leap; that propels an individual to better humanity by uncovering the thread common to all—the common threads of humanity—that form the double helix of our DNA; that inspires that individual to look within himself to see more than his biological antecedents; that compels him to trace his ancestry from a multitude of places, until the many become one—until that person is one with himself.

The easiest way to get this information is through a DNA test. is the most affordable way—hence the name—to begin this process. It is proof of how science influences (and infuses) the humanities with the spirit of discovery. It connects forensics, so to speak, with our forebears; it brings ancestry to life by leading us to uncover the lives of the people whose names we may not know, whose faces we may not recognize, whose tales it is our duty to tell.

A free DNA test unravels this mystery by revealing the biochemical roots that extend from the New World to the Old. It marks the beginning of our journey by showing us the path that precedes us—and the many divergent paths we—and our posterity—may take for generations to come.

This test popularizes science by highlighting our ancestors, who populated the earth and peopled the land; on whose behalf we are (temporary) stewards of the mountains and the plains, until others inherit this planet and uphold this charge to keep.

These rewards represent a revolution for good—they are revolutionary in their own right—as they give us the right to learn about our origins, individually and collectively.
