I am about to set off on my journey to follow the path of my ancestors. After studying research done by Spencer Wells on the Genographic Project, I am truly entrigued. By studying DNA and genetic markers, Wells actually discovered a way to find where people come from. I now live in a small town of Pennsylvania but I know that my ancestors are not from here. Where did I come from? How did my family end up in this town, state, even country? By following the path of my ancestors that Spencer Wells discovered I may finally be able to answer these questions.
These are different people from around the world but according to Spencer Wells, they may be more related than you think.
This map shows how people migrated around the world.
