Did you know, according to research, all the blue eyed people can be traced back to one single ancestor! Yes, that means all blue eyed people are somehow related to each other.

The colour of a human is characteristic of multifactorial inheritance.  OCA2 locus has also been proved to be a major contributor to the variation in the human eye colour. A person who lived near the Black Sea area is believed to be the first person to have blue coloured eye, and all the people in the world who have blue coloured eye  are believed to be his descendant. By linkage analysis of a large Danish family, it was  fine mapped the blue eye color locus to a 166 Kbp region within the HERC2 gene.

By association analyses, we identified two SNPs within this region that were perfectly associated with the blue eye colours: rs12913832. The rs12913832 is located 21.152 bp upstream from the OCA2 promoter in a highly conserved sequence in intron 86 of HERC2.

This is a huge revelation and proves that colour of the eyes can determine your ancestry.
