Completing the missing pages in the Book of Life

It’s a privilege to enable people to have closure and emotional and spiritual wholeness.

Hi, I’m Janna Helshtein, a mother, sister, daughter, niece and granddaughter, with a passion to remember and preserve family history.   Following years in genealogy and genetic genealogy, founding “DNA at Eye Level ” is my dream come true. I believe that everything should be at Eye Level; learning, guidance, research, and support.

My journey began as a personal quest, and today, I help other people find their roots. I’m here to help you answer the question- “Who and Where do I come from?” – that is my mission. This question, holds within it serious issues of belonging, identity and a sense of self.

I engage in public speaking nationally and internationally. I am grateful for any opportunity to share knowledge and stories and connect people to the wonders of genealogy and DNA.

The world of DNA is constantly evolving, so I make sure I stay updated and remain a life-time student. Constant learning from peers and clients is the way to keep developing, providing you with the necessary knowledge for the intricate journey of DNA testing.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or requests.

I’m here for you.

DNA testing changes the whole game in genealogical research. Examining certain markers in our DNA can help us trace the origins of our ancestors, revealing the migration routes of our ancestors and the areas they came from. Furthermore, DNA testing can identify and connect us with relatives living around the world, even distant cousins who share a common ancestor. In addition, DNA can be used to confirm relationships within a family tree, revealing potential unknown branches of our lineage.

The processing of DNA samples varies per company. From the moment the samples check in at the lab, it may take 4-8 weeks.
