View Resource The Genographic Project

Alright, so you have a few relatives from Poughkeepsie who might be able to trace their ancestry back to a certain part of Sicily. But have you ever considered that all humans might be able to trace their origins back to a group of people residing in Africa some 60,000 years ago? It's quite a thought, and the National Geographic Society (working with a number of partners) has created this site to...

As this website opens, users will see a set of overlapping images of different human faces, as a narrator's voice intones: "Race: Are we so different?" It's an intriguing and important question, and one that is addressed through a number of lenses on this site, created by the American Anthropological Association, with funding from the Ford Foundation and the National Science Foundation. As their...
