All genealogy starts here amongst our early hominid forebears and, because there were so few of them scattered all over their ever changing World, we are ALL likely to be related to these very early twigs of humanity, even if only by a scrap or two of bits of DNA !!

“In the 5 million years since early hominids first emerged from east Africa’s Rift Valley, the Earth’s climate has grown increasingly erratic. Over cycles lasting hundreds of thousands of years, arid regions of central Africa were overrun by forests, forests gave way to grasslands and contiguous landscapes were fractured by deep lakes. It was within the context of this swiftly changing landscape that humans evolved their sizable brains and capacity for adaptive behavior.

Oldest Human DNA Reveals Mysterious Branch of Humanity.  The oldest known human DNA found yet reveals human evolution was even more confusing than thought, researchers say.  The DNA, which dates back some 400,000 years, may belong to an unknown human ancestor, say scientists. These new findings could shed light on a mysterious extinct branch of humanity known as Denisovans, who were close relatives of Neanderthals, scientists added.

Selam, a 3.3-million-year-old human ancestor (Australopithecus afarensis specimen) from Ethiopia. She is known as "The World's Oldest Child", because she is the oldest known fossil of a child. The skeleton comprises almost the entire skull and torso and many parts of the limbs. The features of the skeleton suggest adaptation to walking upright as well as tree-climbing.
