About us

The Philippines is a country with a diverse ethnic heritage and rich family traditions. This project will gather DNA data that can help families build family trees and reconnect with lost family members. The data can also be used to learn more about the migration patterns and genetic origins of ancient Filipinos who settled among the 7,100 islands of the Philippine archipelago. All men and women of Filipino ancestry are welcome to join. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the group administrators. The Philippines DNA Project is featured on Facebook.
