About the Event

Joanna Gilmore and La'Sheia Oubre will collect cheek swabs from study  participants with informed consent  to look at markers on the mitochondrial DNA and the Y chromosome. The  DNA samples will be brought to the Laboratory of Molecular Anthropology  at the University of Pennsylvania where they will be securely stored. The data resulting from this analysis will  not be sold or patented, and used only to understand the genetic  ancestry of contemporary African Americans in relation to the Anson Street Ancestors. Enrolled study participants from this round of DNA sampling  can expect to have their results by the end of the  year, 2023. Please note DNA testing is limited to people of African descent and one test per family.
