Africans and African-Americans are welcome! Because we are severely underrepresented in genealogy and genetic research, 23andMe is for a limited time giving out free DNA testing kits.

I received mine in the mail just yesterday and will be sending in my sample tomorrow. Big smile Basically, you just have to have sub-Saharan African ancestry or ancestry with any countries associated with the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade through four grandparents that originate from such lands, be 18+, live in the US, and have access to the internet which we definitely all meet here. LOL


The testing is completely free and voluntary. From what I see on the website, this testing will also allow you info to health facts on your biology like your biological predispositions.

Hmmmm, could it be a trap to gather negro DNA for a secret experiment similar to Tuskegee?

Ancestrydna.com recently got their act together and decided to break down their genetic maps in more detail.  They said my DNA was 22% Congo/Cameroon, 17% Mali, 14% Nigeria and 14% Ivory Coast/ Ghana.

If they want DNA from just any random person, all they gotta do is head to a club's bathroom.

Find aaaall kinds of DNA samples in there and I don't mean the toilet kind. LOL
