Ancestry Updated Communities in Asia, Australia, and More

Ancestry has unveiled updated AncestryDNA communities to help members who have ties to Asia, Polynesia, South Africa, and Australia. The update enables members to better pinpoint where in the world their ancestor were most likely from.

Ancestry is constantly developing new ways for members to learn more about themselves through DNA and is empowering members to unlock more discoveries about their family history. This includes updating their products and services to take advantage of the most advanced science and technology.

By leveraging their unparalleled DNA network of over 18 million people, the largest network of public family trees, and Ancestry’s patented Genetic Communities technology, AncestryDNA can identify groups of people with shared DNA and determine where their ancestors most likely lived. Members can discover their origins from over 1,000 communities worldwide.

Ancestry’s updated communities now have 20 Southeast Asian, 9 East Asian, 31 Oceanian, 2 African and 1 Central Asian & Russian community. Customers may see an update in their results if they have ties to the areas below:

China, Malaysia, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Russia, Philippines, Guam, Mariana Islands, Hawaii, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Asians living in South Africa, Indians in Fiji and South America, and European and British settlers in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Ancestry encourages members to take a look at their DNA story again to see if they have a new community waiting to be explored and shared with their family and other loved ones. As new people continue to join the AncestryDNA network and science and technology continues to evolve, Ancestry will continue to provide updates to their members.

This update follows a previous one in which Ancestry unveiled 75 new AncestryDNA communities. It includes 25 new Mexican communities, 20 South American, 10 Central American, 12 Caribbean, 7 Southern European, and 1 African community.

As always, whenever communities are updated, it is advised that members check their results. There might be some changes after an update is released.
