Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society Reconciling the African Global Family, One Genome at a Time
We are a community of volunteers focused on the ACRO concept. ACRO means African Culture and Reconciliation Organization. We are DNA Tested African Descendants, a component of the Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society (IAHGGS ) . We are an African Hereditary Society. We are the FIRST.
WE ARE NOT A DNA TESTING COMING. We do not compete with nor do we work for any DNA testing company. We have DNA tested ourselves at all major United States based testing companies and a few abroad.
Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society (IAHGGS ) is EXEMPT from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501 (c) (3) as of 25 September 2017. This means donors can deduct contributions that they make under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 170. IAHGGS may also receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522. Our public charity status is 509 (a) (2).
In order to find out if you are related to any of the Africans that we tested, you must take the autosomal DNA (atDNA) test on your own. We facilitate reconnections between the African Diaspora and the Africans born on our ancestral continent. We coordinate Rites of Passage / Namings, cultural reception and integration via language classes, and other enriching events after you have received your results.
We Autosomal DNA test Africans born on the continent of Africa. We also test their extended families. We manage a FREE database of African DNA kits. We teach you how to search the databases to see if you are related to anyone that we tested.
We MUST learn about our history. Our goal is to provide African global history from various indigenous sources as well as global sources. This is a collaborative effort to provide a more detailed, chronological story of our global family. Our approach is from a clean slate vs proving or disproving information that has been provided in the past.
We conduct African Rites of Passage, facilitate reconciliation between the Autosomal DNA Tested African Diaspora with Autosomal DNA Tested Africans born on the Continent of Africa.
We also reconcile first and second generation Autosomal DNA Tested Africans with the Autosomal DNA Tested African Diaspora.
We provide you with 3rd party tools for YOU to research so you can determine which DNA Testing company and /or 3rd party tools for family tree building are most useful to you. We provide helpful templates for initial communications with your DNA matches as well as methods on how to get the most out of your test results.
When you travel to the land of your African Ancestors, you will be able to feel it and say "We Are Home".
Our crowns have been bought and paid for. All we have to do is wear them. ~ James Baldwin
Many of our African Ancestors were taken from Africa in chains. Our goal is to facilitate a memorable reconnection with our Continental African family members in a manner that restores dignity. Its a ROYAL uplifting mindset of humbleness and reflection that we do this. We are far more than what we were told. We are far older as well.
