Meet the Next Generation of Family History New Ancestor Discoveries, the patent-pending innovation only available with AncestryDNA, can take you down a new path of your story. Do you have a brick wall on a family line' Maybe you haven't been able to go very far back in your family tree, or maybe you were adopted and are hoping to find the missing pieces of your story. New Ancestor Discoveries are here to help by using your DNA in a way that has never been possible'until now. Imagine that you know nothing about your 3rd great-grandmother on your father's side. You haven't been able to find her name, you've never seen a picture of her, and you don't know where she was born. Now by taking the AncestryDNA test you may finally discover that piece of your story. This is the power unlocked by New Ancestor Discoveries as we push technology and DNA science to the next level. So, how is this possible' New Ancestor Discoveries are made through a unique combination of AncestryDNA results and the millions of family trees shared by Ancestry members. First, living cousins of each AncestryDNA member are found and organized into family networks called DNA Circles', which bring together groups of people who are all related to the same ancestor. From there, New Ancestor Discoveries are found when you are a strong genetic match with members of a DNA Circle but you don't already have that ancestor in your tree. It's an innovative new way we are combining DNA, family trees, and historical records to help you make the next breakthrough in your story.
