Holland attributes his success to GeneTree, a Utah-based DNA testing service that came up with the Cameroon connection. But GeneTree's chief scientific officer, geneticist Scott Woodward, said Williams' case was far from unusual. "This isn't our home run," Woodward told me. "It takes a lot of regular work.

The DNA testing revealed that Mr. Holland is a long-lost relative of a ruling family in Cameroon, West Africa. In November, Mr. Holland will take his American family, including his 79 year old mother, to Cameroon, to visit with his African family. How exciting!This is one example of how genetic genealogy can be used. Genetic genealogy looks at a select number of DNA markers, (instead of examining the entire genome, or the information used for paternity tests). In general, there are two ways to go. The company offering services in genetic genealogy may look at the Y-chromosome, which is passed [more...]
