Welcome to TAKiR!!
People of African descent are using autosomal genetic genealogy testing services such as AncestryDNA and webtools such as GEDmatch to identify African relatives. In other words, families that were separated during the Transatlantic Slave Trade are reuniting!
We conduct scientific research examining the genetic and social aspects of genealogy among people of African descent. This includes persons born on the continent of Africa and persons of the centuries old African diaspora.
We also use the findings from this research, research from other sources, and personal stories to facilitate healthy reunification between genetic relatives among Africans and people of African descent.
