melungeon dna project

The Melungeon DNA Project is a cool thing where people take a little bit of their saliva and scientists look at it to see where their ancestors came from. Melungeons are a group of people who live in America and the scientists want to see where they came from and how they are related to other people in the world. It's like a big puzzle where they try to connect all the pieces! By doing this they can learn more about the history of these people and their families.
