The human family tree

The Genographic Project is a landmark study of the human journey. Where do you really come from? DNA studies suggest that all humans today descend from a group of African ancestors who—about 60,000 years ago—began a remarkable journey.

Since I saw the show 'The Human Family Tree' on the National Geographic channel recently, I've been thinking about how astonishing it is that we, all of us humans, are interrelated and all of us can be traced back to one small part of Africa.

This and this are interesting.
