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.
