Re: Family photo Vinita, OK

Re: Thuya

Re: Thuya

I have read also where the color of her and Yuyas hair was due to the mummification process. I am not a scientist. But seeing how hair and finger/ toe nails are virtually “dead” skin cells would make one believe that the skin of Thuya and Yuya would have been “bleached in the mummification process a...

Thuya

An article from July 9, 2019.

Re: Green dot Central North America

Marcia, We do have some similar matches. Michigan area Indians. Florida and Mexico also. I am starting to think there was an NPE in my Ford line somewhere. Especially given the photos I have. I have also found a photo from early 1900’s of a related Ford family that have children that look very simil...

Re: Crypto Jews

Jakay, Thank you. I will purchase the book. I think it is likely that I have Sephardic ancestors. But like my Native American and Angolan/ Congolese ancestor/ ancestors, I have yet to find them.
