South African mtDNA Project Website- Background
South African mtDNA
The project was started in September 2008 after a brief discussion on a South African genealogical chatlist (SA Genealogie at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SAgenealogie/) about South African progenitresses (stammoeders).
Further reading: In the first place, I recommend the book Trace your roots with DNA by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak and Ann Taylor. Background reading: authors Spencer Wells and Bryan Sykes (particularly "Seven Daughters Of Eve").
