Mapping the most important story in history - yours

From 92 regions in Ireland to a 10 mile radius in Puerto Rico, Ancestry is able to offer an astonishing level of detail on the precise regions of the world where your story started.

Drawing from the world's largest consumer DNA database and the world’s largest database of family trees, Ancestry tells you not only which of hundreds of communities your ancestors came from, it can tell you when they came, with data going back as far as the 1700s.
