Ancestry.com DNA Testing Reveals 'Roots' Author's Scottish Ancestry
Date:4/7/2009

ou are from another part of the world, and to meet a person who shares your heritage, is an amazing experience," said Chris Haley, who is currently the director of the Study of the Legacy of Slavery at the Maryland State Archives.

"The match between Mr. Haley and Ms. Black is a perfect example of how DNA testing can prove exceptionally useful in advancing family history, especially in cases of African-American research in which traditional channels often hit 'brick walls,'" said DNA genealogy expert Megan Smolenyak.

Genetic genealogy is a technology that reveals family relatedness - a genetic (DNA) connection to individuals to whom you are related. Ancestry.com's DNA kits test the paternal or maternal line by studying either the 'Y-chromosome' (passed from father to son) or 'mitochondrial DNA' (which is passed from mother to son and daughter). The Ancestry.com DNA service compares the results from one DNA test with thousands of other people in its database who have taken the same test, identifying possible matches around the world as well as supplying the recipient with rich detail about their ancient ancestry.

"This is a perfect example of what a simple cheek swab can achieve," said Tim Sullivan, CEO of The Generations Network, Inc., parent company of Ancestry.com. "DNA testing uses science in a way that enables people to discover their ancestry where traditional research goes cold and to connect with living relatives they never knew they had."

Ancestry.com's DNA test results can help introduce living cousins, help you prove your genetic relation to a specific individual and trace the migration patterns ancient ancestors followed as they left Africa. Ancestry.com's 33-marker paternal DNA test is available for $79. For more information about Ancestry.com's DNA testing kits, visit www.dna.ancestry.com.
