Conclusion

This methodological blog series demonstrated the use of publicly accessible genetic genealogy tools to identify African American extended relatives of Ghanaians of the Kassena ethnic group. By inference, families that were separated during the Transatlantic Slave Trade are reuniting. The results of this study were used in a subsequent study about family identity among members of the Kassena ethnic group who engage in social interactions with their African American biological extended relatives.
