During this family reunion season, African Ancestry, Inc., offers 5 easy tips on adding ancestry tracing to their family events and be a part of a growing trend that's changing the face of family celebrations everywhere.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 25, 2008 -- By summer's end, thousands of Black families will have gathered in celebration of their family bonds. Funny "uncle" stories will be shared; family matriarchs and patriarchs will be honored; and thousands of family-favorite recipes will be showcased with pride and eaten with joy.
African Ancestry has empowered a revolution in African-American family events whereby families across the nation can now include menu items from their native lands like Cameroon, Sierra Leone or Nigeria; or offer narratives originating in their family tribes from 500 years ago; or even enhance the all-to-infamous family reunion t-shirts with African homeland paraphernalia.
African Ancestry's Easy Recipe for Enhancing Your Family Reunions:
1. Know Your Family's Root! Before you take on any ancestry tracing endeavor, be sure to clearly define your family's goals. Are you demystifying an adoption? Are you solely interested in your African roots or other race-based lineages? Do you want to explore your mother's side vs. your father's, or both? Answering these type questions upfront can be the difference between an enjoyable, customized family experience with accurate results or a drawn-out, laborious process.
2. Family Swab Meet! One swab can unlock the roots of an entire family. For example, everyone inherits unique DNA exclusively from his or her mothers (likewise from male to male). Consider having your family elder do the swabbing, capture it on film, showcase results during your Family Reunion and keep the life-changing footage in your family archives.
3. The X-Y Factor!
