We all go back in history much farther than we regularly think about. The popularity of DNA testing for biogeographic roots can begin to tell you where your ancestors came from. But that is just the beginning of the story. The goal of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences; by learning about your past you can learn how your diverse ancestry impacts you. Many of us don’t realize the impact our deep biogeographic roots have on who we are and how we view the world. Some of us have heard tales of happiness, bravery, adventure, treachery, and even scandal about our ancestors. But others don’t know our native origin, or the names of those who preceded us.
Dr. Nancy blends expertise in anthropology and genealogy to create a complete picture:“who am I, and where did my people come from?” She leverages the latest in DNA testing and study of native people across the globe to put faces to names and connections to biogeographic origins.
