I have a loose theory that most of the African America families in Southampton are interrelated. I'd like to reach out to all African-Americans with roots in Southampton to join me in a project to put this theory to the test.

If you do not have an aversion to DNA testing, please send me a message on Ancestry for more information.

Sent off the first kit with my father's DNA. I thought this would be prudent because he has roots on both sides of his family.

Ancestries DNA testing isn't very good for identifying much more than your haplogroups. 23andMe actually will compare DNA to see if you're genetically related.
