One of my friends went to the National Geographic website and found that she could get the
general migration pattern of her family by participating in their study. For $30, they
send you a kit for you to provide your "mouth swab" to them and then they put it
into a general DNA computer program. From there it traces your ancestors all the way back
through American to European and (I am hearing from her) to the very first people your
genes came from.
She was pleased to see that both her husband and her families came from different areas of
the world, but came together in the same eastern state (and area) where they met and
married. (She now lives in Calif.). She tells me this was all from the swab and, as I
believe, not from any other info she gave them as to her ancestors.
I haven't yet sent mine, but intend to today.
