Title: The Genographic Project
Url: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/
Publisher: National Geographic Society (U.S.)
Description: Alright, so you have a few relatives from Poughkeepsie who might be able to trace their ancestry back to a certain part of Sicily. But have you ever considered that all humans might be able to trace their origins back to a group of people residing in Africa some 60,000 years ago? It's quite a thought, and the National Geographic Society (working with a number of partners) has created this site to deal with such thought-provoking questions of our shared "deep" genetic and ancestral makeup. To start things off, visitors should read the "About the Project" area, which provides some background on the project's ambitious mission. After that, a look into the "Genetics Overview" area is a must, as it provides some of the basic scientific knowledge that serves as the basis for this project. Without a doubt, the highlight of the site is the "Atlas of the Human Journey", which takes visitors on a tour of the great migrations of humans over the past 60,000 years. Along the way, visitors will learn about the changing genetic makeup of humans and how they moved around the earth.
