Ancestry’s NEW Ethnicity Inheritance – SideView™

This morning Ancestry launched its newest feature for DNA, and I was super excited to be given access before launch. It’s called Ethnicity Inheritance using SideView™ technology.

The first thing you see is the graphic that I have above, which explains you will be able to see the ethnicity inheritance by region for each side of your family…… even if you haven’t tested your parents. Not only that, as you can see by the graphic below, you’ll also get an updated ethnicity estimate for your own DNA.

Sweden & Denmark8Up3

If you’d like to learn more about how Ancestry gives you your ethnicity estimates, you can read more HERE.

The next you’ll see is a box that takes you to your parents’ ethnicity estimates. This new feature is called Sideview™ technology, and I’ll tell you more about it below.

Above you see how it separates Parent 1 from Parent 2, and you also can click on each of the ethnicity buttons and see each of the pieces you got from each parent. Later, you’ll even be able to edit and add that information if you know which parent it’s coming from. I’m pretty sure my dad is Parent 2.

How can they do this? It’s something they call SideView™ technology. You can read more about that HERE. Sideview™ technology tells you the estimated portions of each region you inherited from each side of your family. And in the coming months, Ancestry will use SideView™ technology to show customers DNA matches by parental side, community, and journey patterns for each parental side and even more about your inherited DNA.

I’m really looking forward to what this new SideView technology will help me do in the future. Have a peek at what Ancestry’s new SideView tells you and let me know what you think.
