I know, I know it seems kind of obvious but I used Ancestry.com DNA's test to determine my specific ethnic heritage, and am thrilled to share some NOT ALL of the results here. So if you are related to me or just curious here is a piece,( it updates daily of what it has determined.)
The Gambia to Equatorial Guinea & Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Gabon, Congo, and various other nations along Africa's west coast, from more to come. 
About Your Region
About Your Region

Your ethnicity indicates that you have ancestry from West Africa, an area that stretches along the continent's Atlantic coast from the desolate sands of the Sahara in Mauritania and Mali to the humid canopies of the central African rain forests in Gabon and Congo. Camel caravans once hauled rock salt from desert mines through the legendary city of Timbuktu. And it's the only place on Earth where you can see a lowland gorilla outside of a zoo.
The people of this region trace their ethnic and cultural roots to numerous different sources. The Tuareg Berbers in the predominantly Muslim north are descended from the desert nomads of the Sahara; the sub-Saharan African populations including the Hausa, Mandinka, and Youruba are descendents of the ancient western kingdoms that dominated the region before the arrival of European colonists; the Baka of Cameroon and Gabon, previously referred to as "pygmies," are some of the oldest residents of the area; and the Bantu language group, which originated in Cameroon, is spoken across the entire southern half of the continent.
Your genetic ethnicity indicates that you have ancestry from Central Africa, which consists of the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Bordering the southern stretches of Sudan and the Sahara, the Central African Republic is mostly semi-arid savanna, gradually giving way to lush, tropical rainforest in the south.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, or DRC, contains the Congo Rainforest and the Congo River Basin, the world's second largest rainforest and river system, respectively. The country has been known by many names through the years, among them, Belgian Congo, Congo-Kinshasa, and Zaire. The rainforests are also where you can find Africa’s richest assortment of animals such as the Black Colobus monkey, African forest elephants, gorillas and driver ants (not the friendliest).
