A Landmark Study of the Human Journey

We humans have walked this planet for a very long time.

We faced countless struggles... migrated to new lands... inhabited all continents. The Genographic project is about that journey. It’s about your personal journey... where you’re from. It is the great discovery of our origins... of who we are.

The Genographic project is unprecedented... it’s the discovery and bringing together of our collective history. It is a unique opportunity to learn from our ancestors and the journeys they have begun for us.

IBM is proudly participating in this great adventure, in partnership with the National Geographic Society. You can be part of this extraordinary adventure.

Explore this site, discover how technology and insight are coming together to help us humans unlock the mystery of our origins.
