I heard on CNN about a project to determine the distant origins

world-wide project and would it provide useful additional data to
the genealogical DNA research you do?

The project you heard about on CNN is sponsored by the National
Geographic Society. As I understand it, it is basic research to
uncover new information on prehistoric immigration patterns. Whether
it will contribute to our personal genealogical knowledge is unclear
to me.

For more information on this project, see the NGS Web site at:
