Would you like to know more about your genetic family history? tellmeGen makes it possible with the DNA Connect service! Find relatives around the world with whom you share DNA and connect with them.
A social network... Based on genetics!
How do we search for your genetic family?
With the main objective of helping to create new connections between relatives around the world, DNA Connect works by following these three steps:
We compare the 750,000 genetic markers we study with the DNA of all our users and detect identical DNA fragments between all pairs of individuals in our database.
We measure the length of each identical DNA fragment found between two users. More distant matches imply shorter lengths while closer matches imply longer lengths.
We evaluate the length of all these shared DNA fragments with the aim of converting them into a kinship relationship.
Which relationships do we analyze?
The relationships we analyze in DNA Connect and the probability of finding the relationships for each of them are as follows:
Father - son100% probability
Grandfather - grandson100% probability
Uncle - nephew100% probability
Great-grandfather - great-grandson100% probability
Second uncle - second nephew (1)100% probability
Second cousin99% probability
Third uncle - third nephew (2)96% probability
Third cousin85% probability
Fourth uncle - fourth nephew (3)67% probability
Fourth cousin45% probability
The DNA test that makes the difference
DNA Connect works in a very simple and intuitive way. Access your ever-growing list of genetic relatives and people with whom you share DNA and choose who to connect with through the messaging service.
tellmeGen works every day to provide the most truthful information possible. To avoid offering false matches, we use stricter thresholds than those used by other companies, which allows us to be more reliable in the search for distant relatives.
