  •  We went through (11+ / 0-)

    the service offered by National Geographic.  Since they had done world wide 'tracking' of groups, I thought they would be reliable.  Not sure which company is actually behind their service.  Now $200. with more info.    Yes, there is now a more extensive, expensive matching, than even that.  

    Gave it to Mr P for a B'day present.  He is the only son of a deceased father.  It was very interesting.  His ancestors came out of south central Africa, of course, and roamed north through present day Turkey/Armenia (where some split off and went to India & SE Asia), past Italy, around to the western area of the Mediterranean, to what is now Spain; before going north to Germany & England/Scotland.

    On our travel bucket list are the areas of Spain & France where the cave paintings are, because his ancestors were there at the same time.  Interesting stuff indeed!

    On my mother's side, it seems the lines go back to the Olduvai Gorge area of Africa.  This is very interesting to me, because my first exposure to this, came during high school, in the early 1960's, when Louis Leakey came to Yale for a lecture/demonstration.  He knocked my 16 yo socks and jeans off with his live demonstration of the meat cutting tools found with the skeletons.
