Next Generation Research: Cultural Genography #dna

Adam Cherson

Have you done every type of genetic testing, scoured every database, and still are not sure of your ethnic and cultural origins beyond a few documented generations, in fewer than all of your lineages?


Introducing Cultural Genography, a genetic research strategy whereby at very low cost a person of any age and gender may delve into their complete ethnicity and cultural affinities, both maternal and paternal, with no civil records or extended-family testing necessary.


A Cultural Genography report is unique to you (no two are identical), using a peer-reviewed methodology (primary component analysis) prepared by a live human being (not automated), and based on the comparison of your autosome to that of nearly 3,000 ancient samples reported in the scientific literature covering Neolithic to Medieval times. The report identifies your closest cousins in each of 12 eras stretching from 10,000 BCE to 1300 CE, providing the most complete awareness of cultural and ethnic ancestry possible. Make your next trip a tour of all your ancestral homelands!


Each study includes a custom-made report, the accompanying interactive maps, and five scatter charts (including a Sephardic-Ashkenazic study, and a modern European/Near Eastern populations study), available for download in only ten days. If you or your loved one(s) have already obtained an autosomal test from any of the major companies (23andMe, Ancestry, FTDNA, MyHeritage, etc.), a Cultural Genography can be produced for merely US$120 (plus the US$12 to format your autosomal data into primary components, a 2-3 day process). Complete, step-by-step guidance and instructions are provided, including everything you need to know to conduct your own modeling studies, should you wish to do so. This is a new data-only version of the complete report which goes for $US600!


You deserve to benefit from this treasure trove of self-knowledge—and makes a fantastic gift as well.
