Ancestry DNA extends its market to 29 more countries

AncestryDNA has announced that it is now offering its DNA testing kits and service to researchers in 29 new countries.

The new countries are: Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Sweden, Turkey and Vatican City.

AncestryDNA's test was originally available only in the United States. The purchase area was extended to Ireland and the UK just over a year ago, and to Australia and Canada more recently. According to Ancestry's recently published corporate report, more than 1.5million samples are now included in the company's database. This new extension of geographical area is likely to open up even more interesting discoveries to those who have tested.

The price of the AncestryDNA kit and shipping will vary from country to country.
