BBC NEWS – Americans seek their African roots

An article at BBC News – Americans seek their African roots – briefly discusses genetic genealogy in America.

One interesting quote from the article: “Of the half a million Americans who have purchased DNA tests, around 35,000 of them are African American.” Interesting article, although I at a complete loss for where the “35,000” number was obtained.

The article also includes some criticism from Deborah Bolnick of African Ancestry‘s interpretation of their genetic genealogy tests.

Via Anglo-Celtic Connections, where John provides some very cogent input regarding this topic.
