Genealogy

Unforgettable adventure, healing travel experiences in Ghana, W. Africa

“Where am I from?” “Where are we going?” “How did we get here?”

These are questions that several of our family members have asked time and time again. You have to know where you have been and where you are to know where you are going.

It is part of the reason this journey started. Ike has a keen affection for learning about his family tree and documenting his findings.

Since Ike and Natalee were both born in Jamaica, we believed, for the most part, that most of our ancestors were from there.

But how could we be sure? We wanted to know the whole story of our ancestry. We decided the best place to start was to get a baseline of our genetic makeup. This would begin to “paint the picture” of the origins of our histories, the homelands of our ancestors and far more.

Adding a genealogy aspect to our travel journey was then a no-brainer.

After careful research, we decided to use the personal genomics test to establish a genetic baseline for our family. Ike and Natalee each took a test to look into both sides of the family.

Exploring Legacy Genealogy - Trace Your Past History, Origin and Culture

A PEOPLE WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR PAST HISTORY, ORIGIN AND CLTURE IS LIKE A TREE WITHOUT ROOTS.

Our Ancestry Test Results

The test broke down our ancestry based upon 31 different populations around the world. We now have the ability to see the baselines for our ancestries across the globe, which helped highlight a few locations to visit during our travels.

Not only were we able to trace our origins, but we were also able to connect with distant, living relatives through the Shared DNA service, a unique feature that enables test-takers to find out whether they share ancestry with each other.

We had the ability to track some of those people, connect with them on our travels and share stories.
