Welcome to Oxford Ancestors

Over the past almost twenty years, it has been my privilege to have you send me your DNA from all over the world. Oxford Ancestors started way back in 2000. I wanted people to be able to share in the excitement of the research being done in university laboratories like my own in Oxford and through that bring people together and appreciate the courage and resilience of our ancestors and their sheer determination to survive, without which of course none of us would be here.
