The African Royal DNA Project is co-founded by Ada Anagho Brown of Roots to Glory, and AdaEze Naja Levoe, the founder of Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society, also known as DNA Tested African Descendants . Naja’s organization has been testing Africans for several years now and has reconnected families since 2011. Either members of the DNA Tested Africans Organization purchased the DNA kits ourselves or others purchased and donated them to us for testing. We have coordinated naming ceremonies since 2011.
In 2017, Princess AdaEze Chinyere Njoku Eri, Founder of DNA Tested African Descendants and Princess Ada Anagho Brown joined in collaboration temporarily to create the African Royal DNA Project. Because Princess Ada traveled to African countries often, Princess Naja asked her to conduct Autosomal DNA testing while she is there. That is how the African Royal DNA Project was established in 2017. The African Royale DNA Project conducted Autosomal DNA testing in various Kingdoms on the continent of Africa. This effort added a variety of African kits to our DNA Tested Africans database.
In 2019, the collaboration concluded with a larger African database for the work of DNA Tested African Descendants to continue expanding. DNA Tested African Descendants are currently testing in Sierra Leone and Ghana.
African Royal DNA testers in our project are as follows:
African Bloodline Royals and their extended families
African Titled Royals and their extended families
African Village Chiefs and their extended families
African Clan Leaders and their extended families
