About us

Like many other individuals searching for that ancestor behind the brick wall of genealogy, we are no different. However, our walls have been many, success for some has been little, often dead ends with no hope and no light at the end of any tunnel. At times, it has seemed that finding any information about that elusive ancestor from not so long ago is an insurmountable task. Until now.

As we ourselves know how daunting it can be to all of a sudden be faced with a meaningless bunch of markers or numbers and letters that suddenly say that you belong to this or that Haplogroup, our goals are:

1) To help you find that meaning and to help others find a direction when they receive their DNA results
2) To communicate and share our knowledge
3) To see our project create a purpose other than just curiosity (Thanks Sherri)
4) To diminish the intimidation and uneasiness some may feel when DNA testing
5) To connect with relatives who hold that other piece of our own puzzle
6) To find YOU somewhere out there who holds the key to the common link to a region or area where our ancestors may have once lived
7) To help provide articles, literature and other resources to assist others to further understand genetic genealogy
8) To promote the importance of sharing and participating in projects such as ours

Finally, our biggest and most important goal is to eventually have a public database repository for all those whose mtDNA or yDNA points to mother Africa.

PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, includes over 15 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's. These citations are from MEDLINE and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources.
