Notes on Biogeographical Ancestry

Tests identifying percentages of biogeographical ancestry are based on the complete revelation of the human genome in 2002 (Human Genome Project).

The human genome is at least 99.5% identical in all humans. A person's genome is a random recombination of DNA over thousands of years.

Biogeographical ancestry tests, which only look at a very tiny percentage of the human genome, show a person's ancestral percentages from the world's major population groups.

Test results may be accumulated from many, many generations. Fifteen generations account for over thirty-two thousand ancestors in five hundred years or so and twenty generations account for over a million ancestors.
