Re: Africans in Early American pre History

The Olmecs must have been of Sub Saharan African origin based on the statues found in Central America. Rafinesque also speaks of “black African looking” Indians in Northern California. So much of the Americas history is lost or “hidden”. I presume “hidden”. For what ever reasons. In America if one w...

Re: Melungeon test

According to Sue Levin the Melungeon reference population is the most current at DNA Consultants. I asked her yesterday if an update was available or necessary for me. Even though my Melungeon Fingerprint Plus gave me Melungeon as my number 1 match. On the word Melungeon there are many theories out ...

Re: Thuya

I have a picture of my younger brother I am looking for at the moment. It is quite shocking to see after learning what I have learned of my genetic profile. I will post here once I find it.

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...
