lly been able to prove that certain African Americans are descended from the slave master who owned their ancestors. This is a historic achievement made possible only by this incredible technology. In addition, there is no doubt that receiving their autosomal ancestry information through 23andMe's Ancestry Painting feature is the high point for each of our guests on the show."

23andMe narrows down family origins and generates a broad picture of genetic ancestry through an in-depth comparison to over 50 populations from around the world.  23andMe can tell approximately what fraction of each participant's ancestry is African, Asian or European. The 23andMe Ancestry Painting presents their history as reflected in their chromosomes.  Additional 23andMe tools reveal where their ancestors lived hundreds and even thousands of years ago and, in some cases, indicate whether participants have any Native American ancestors within the past five generations.
