When Oprah Winfrey took a DNA Test several years back; she learned that her DNA had three exact matches…all people who lived in Africa.
Like many African-Americans whose Genealogy is difficult to trace before slavery, she knew of her Birth in Mississippi, and that an Ancestor started a School for Black children, after the Civil War.
In the book Finding Oprah’s Roots: Finding Yours it points out that African tribes migrated West across the continent; and her history of American slavery probably begins with a woman from West Africa arriving between 1801- 1810 at Charleston, South Carolina .
She also learned that she is 3% East Asian.
DNA Testing has taken some amazing leaps forward since she took her test. Now the most popular test for family history are Autosomal tests that MEDVAL Genealogy Services, and others make available to clients.
These are tools both men and women can use to compare their DNA with others around the world, and then uncover tantalizing clues about the people who came before them…and their journeys.
This information, together with historical research data will help break through difficult Genealogical “brick walls” .
