Travel to trace your roots

There are a lot of names for it: ancestry travel, genealogy trip, family heritage travel. If you’re just getting started with genealogy, it might surprise you how truly global your history is.

A study by the University of Pennsylvania revealed diversity on the continent, shared ancestry among geographically diverse groups. There is no single African population that is representative of the diversity present on the continent. So even though the three countries represented on this table are miles apart, that is to say Nigeria in the west, Congo in the centre and Zimbabwe in the South, we could all share some kind of lineage due to our ancestors migrating.

Traveling to discover who and what made you who you are can be addictive. Just ask Anita Kerai.
