This Man's DNA Is the Oldest in North America

The company Cellular Research Institute (CRI) Genetics decided to trace a man’s ancestry for 55 generations with 99% accuracy. Some of the revealing genetic information such as origins of his black feet ancestors from the pacific island were collected. According to the analysis done to his DNA, Crawford contains genetic information that is part of the mtDNA haplotype B2 group, which originated in Arizona about 17,000 years ago. He appears to be a descendant of Ina, which is a major Native American group in North America. Researchers conclude that Crawford’s DNA matches up with Native Americans by 83% as well as 5% East Asian, 2% South Asian, and less than 1% African. In conclusion, with this finding we are showing how far we come in genetics and how much more we can achieve and learn about our ancester.


  1. It amazing what scientist can do with DNA, and how they able to track what location of peoples descendants.
