This week, an article by CitiGen post-doc Sarah Abel was published in the journal Genealogy, as part of a special issue entitled “Sankofa; or ‘Go Back and Fetch it’: Merging Genealogy and Africana Studies”.

The article looks at the extent to which DNA ancestry tests have been seen as a useful tool (or not) for exploring Black family histories in different political and cultural contexts. An open access version of the article can be found here.
