Excellent Article on Mapping Humanity’s Past

March 6th, 2011 . by admin

I don’t often post links to newspaper articles but this one is really worth reading.

This article, which appeared in the printer version of the Feb. 27, San Jose Mercury News, is all about  using DNA to trace my family tree.  It talks about the National Geographic’s DNA project which “traces one’s ancestors’ tree of life out of Africa”.  It is really worth reading as it provides information about your family tree that really can’t in the traditional method of taking to relatives and searching records.

    Hi Richard,
    Nice article, thanks for sharing. It was an interesting read. I liked the punchline “How unlikely: Swab the inside of your cheek with a Q-tip, and step back into the vastness of history.”. It sums it all.
