National Geographic Project find out where your ancestors

You buy this kit (kind of expensive - $100) and you submit 2 cotton swap samples from your cheek/mouth and then they can trace you all the way back to your earliest ancestors as far as possible, some of you may be surprised.

P.S. This can't help in paternity stuff since it traces ina way for a larger scale to early ancestory.

"Our genes allow us to chart the ancient human migrations from Africa across the continents. Through one path, we can see living evidence of an ancient African trek, through India, to populate even isolated Australia."

"Such questions are even more amazing in light of genetic evidence that we are all related—descended from a common African ancestor who lived only 60,000 years ago."
