Yep...we made it a family project. We purchased the family package (PatriClan and MatriClan test). We tested two individuals: my uncle for the PatriClan test to determine the direct paternal African ancestry of my great-grandfather; and My mom's oldest-living first cousin, who carries the mtDNA from my great-grandmother. Then, I made a special website of our results. See link below.
Note: Not all family members will have knowledge of these new DNA technologies and some will be relunctant at first. This is understandable. Just send them some of the numerous articles that have recently been published in the more famous newspapers and magazines, so they can see that DNA testing is becoming more popular. I bombarded our family e-mail group with articles about this. A lot of my family members still live in rural communities in Mississippi, in Memphis, TN, etc. and are not as aware or not as exposed to certain cultural things, compared to diversed, more cultural cities like Atlanta, Washington, D.C., L.A., Chicago, etc., if I am allowed to say that. Know what I mean?
