The DNA kits are managed by Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society (IAHGGS) also known as DNA Tested Africans via AfricanRoyale@DNATestedAfricans.org. The Founder is Princess Naja Chinyere Njoku Eri.
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.
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 was there. This is how the African Royal DNA Project was established in 2017. This project occurred SIMULTANEOUSLY as officers in our DNA Tested Africans organization continued to test people born in Africa.
The "African Royal 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 early 2019, the collaboration concluded.
The mission of DNA Tested Africans has always been to change the way Africans in the Diaspora view themselves and their families by reuniting the descendants of those that were forcibly removed from the continent with their biological families in Africa.
Our goal is to reconnect the families using the DNA matching services that Autosomal DNA testing provides.
DNA Tested African Descendants' Project
Our continuing organization project is called the "African Royale DNA Project"
We continue to
Test Africans born on the continent of Africa
Create genealogy family trees and DNA databases for DNA tested Royals
Document and digitize the African Oral History of villages and families
Reconcile the African Royals with their DNA matches in the Diaspora
Coordinate naming and reconnection ceremonies and
Re-connect families with their rightful Kingdoms and villages
We understand the trauma of losing our ancestral names, identity, language and culture as a result of the Transatlantic Trade. For years, we have provided a global platform for restorative and healing reconnections between DNA matches. We have coordinated African Ancestral Naming Ceremonies in the United States and in various countries in Africa since 2011. This is to assist DNA Tested African Descendants in reclaiming their traditional names from their ethnic group(s) of ancestry. Over 2000 Descendants have taken part in the ceremonies.
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.
Our crowns have been bought and paid for. All we have to do is wear them. ~ James Baldwin
Over the past years, we have tested several Continental Africans ( people born on the continent of Africa ) . They want to meet and connect with us in the Diaspora. We test the following.
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
(Expanded in 2018 to include) Africans Born on Our Ancestral Continent of Africa and have recently immigrated abroad
We are not a "for profit" entity. We are a Non Profit Organization. We are NOT a tour company or a DNA Testing Company. We NEVER have been. We do not conduct any tours. If we decide to travel to Kingdoms in Africa to connect with our families, it will be a FAMILY reunion and we will surely advise you of the plans via our newsletter or posts. The notice will contain information with proper disclaimers.
