Re: Genographic Project
In Response To: Genographic Project ()
I've taken the test and I'm still waiting for the results to be uploaded. The problem with the Genographic Project for African-American males is that it only traces the paternal line. Due to the amount of rapes that took place on plantations, most African-American men will eventually have a white biological ancestor on their paternal line. Usually, the maternal line yields better results for African-American genealogy. This is why the Genographic Project is better for African-American females than it is for males. Your father should get a maternal DNA test done at AfricanAncestry.com if he want to trace himself back to a particular clan or tribe.
