DNA - Modern Europeans Descend from Three Groups

I am not sure any us can trace our family with any accuracy much back beyond the 1600's.  However, if you do a Y-DNA or a MTDNA test - you get this information about where your family came from (Africa), when they immigrated to Europe and if you have the MTDNA test - the female ancestor that you most likely descend from.  No one doubts that we have much to learn about this early ancestry and an recent article describes more information provided by gene analysis!
