Re: Native American DNA

Well got the D9S919 result today... 17 and 18 so in the same position as prior.Oh well... just neither prove or disproves anything. Both are world wide, 18 seems pretty sparse and lower percentage on the Native populations. The 17 figure is 12% for Cherokee and 18.8% for Creek so not impossible I su...

Re: Native American DNA

Found this old post ... I have ordered the allele test on the D9S919 from Family Tree. I figure given it is around 30 or so percent Native for a 9 STR result if I do have Native that is a 1 in 3 shot. I know I show the Amerind rare gene and a Native II marker not sure if or how they relate but I thi...

Re: Thuya

I think the hair could be bleached from the mummification. Though it is thick and wavy might be more middle eastern? ... but very cool. I did see there are some people using Dr. Yates information on the argument of King Tut and family being pure African, don't think they understand the rare gene mig...

I was guessing that is relating to tribes removed to Oklahoma during the trail of tears. We are similar but still different:

Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

Hi again Christopher. Though I believe I have at least one Native ancestor, still elusive, I do consider myself to primarily white/European racially and culturally. But I am finding there is something to results that I thought had to be wrong. For my sister her Cherokee test she had probably 25-30 o...

Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

I have to tell you that I have just recently found a connection to Barbados and Jamaica but she would have been Irish that were there in the slave trade, Elizabeth O'Neal and her father, great grand father born in Barbados. I found an O'Neal family history from like 1924 saying that the ONeal's had ...

Re: Family photo Vinita, OK

Christopher... A look on Ancestry under the Hammon name I found a connection for us I think. Someone showing DeLoss C. Ford as their grandfather (WR initials) and maybe I have a connection to you in 2 ways or more. Perhaps there is a relation to the Hammon via Emma Rook also shows "Oxford"...

Re: Melungeon Skunk Strip/ Stripe

There was an old time Mexican singer/actor Miguel Aceves Mejía who had the stripe. I read Mejía might indicate Jewish ancestry.

Re: Antique Vase

Very nice. :)
The line pattern at bottom looks like it is at least emulating an African motif. The hammer dings (depressions) made me think of caribbean steel drums. Wild guess might be from some place like Jamaica or Haiti? Anything on the bottom like a stamp or writing?
