How to use ancestry in a sentence?

  1. Zenobia Jacobs:

    So, the Denisovan ancestry in living Australian Aboriginal and New Guinean people could, therefore, be the result of direct interbreeding between their ancestors and Denisovans, but we do not know where this interaction took place.

  2. Anthony Wilder Wohns:

    Simply put, what we did was we created the largest human family tree ever, we have a single genealogy that traces the ancestry of all of humanity, and shows how we're all related to each other today.

  3. Iosif Lazaridis:

    We may be removing some of the mystique surrounding these people by showing that they weren't that different from the people that came before or after them, the Minoans and Mycenaeans didn't have any special ancestry: they were made of the same basic ‘stuff’ as other people from Europe and the Middle East. So we can't answer the question of why these civilizations flourished thousands of years ago, but we can at least cast some light on who they were and where they came from.

  4. Seneca:

    He who boasts of his ancestry is praising the deeds of another.

  5. Democratic State Assemblyman Albert Muratsuchi:

    I wanted to do something different and have California lead by example, while our nation's capital is hopelessly divided along party lines and President Trump is putting immigrant families and children in cages, the California Legislature with HR 77 will be issuing an official, bipartisan measure for its own actions taken that led to the incarceration of over 120,000 loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry behind barbed wire.
