As I’m in the process of writing my second novel, I’ve become more and more curious about my African ancestry. My own story has me wondering, what part of Africa did my ancestors come from and what tribe? In all honesty, having a DNA test will be the closest tool available for me to find out. Court records won’t tell me much of anything because records like that was not seen as important during the Era of slavery.
I’ve decided to purchase an ancestry kit from either Ancestry DNA, 23andMe or My Heritage and I’m going to post my results here. I can’t wait to find out where in Africa my ancestors came from. This I tell you is going to be exciting! My next novel just became even more interesting to write.
