Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

emmdee, One thing I love about DNA Consultants is that they will never take away our population matches. I have not yet lost my trace amounts of NA on 23andme yet. They did however take away my Spanish/ Potuguese and add Angolan/ Congolese. Which still falls in line with my DNA Consultants results o...

Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

This has been a long journey. And one I am sure will continue for the rest of my life. Had it not been for DNA Consultants though I may not have looked as deeply into many of my ancestors from 1600-1700’s along the East Coast of America. I found one of my 9th great grandmothers that was born in Barb...

Re: Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America: A Genealogical History

Marcia, I have markers for Jewish I, III and IV. Not positive which side or if both. But am fairly certain moms side at least one of the markers. The Veatch is in my dads side. “The Sheriff” sounds familiar like I have read about him somewhere else. Interesting also is I have read that Quakers had i...

Re: Blessed

On a side note. My ancestry.com and my daughters previously stated ancestry from East Coast, Tennessee and Early Midwest. All tied into our paper trail. But recently they took that away. Based on a new genome “chip”. They now say I am 100% Irish! Well. I do have Irish in me. But not 100%. To paraphr...

In my Melungeon report I have: Melungeon (n=40) at number 1 Native American - Lumbee (n=106) at number 3 US Cherokee admixed (n=62) at number 9 Blessings to you in your ...
