|Tracing African roots
Ever wanted to trace your family tree? For many Afro-Caribbeans, the only way to trace their African roots is through DNA testing. All other clues were lost when their ancestors were taken as slaves, over four hundred years ago.
Now, hundreds of British Afro-Caribbeans have discovered which part of Africa their forebears came from through the Motherland project.
Volunteers donated DNA samples, and geneticists compared them with samples from around the world, helping to pinpoint African family origins.
